This had a big fall in 2015-2016, and it hasn’t formed a base yet. Don’t be a hero. Wait for a credible rally to develop first.

This is not just selling mattresses, but are also selling accessories, which are higher margin lines of products. It is doing very well, which is reflected in the charts. If the company is doing well, you will see investors appreciate that and adding value to the stock price, and we are seeing that. Dividend yield of 1.84%. (Analysts’ price target is $36.)

The market assigns a very low valuation to this, because the general view is that print is in secular decline. According to management, this company’s major line of business is printing flyers for retailers, which is 65% of their business. The rest of it is newspapers and outsourcing printing, and they are the last man standing. They are also in packaging, a much higher margin business, and it is not appreciated by the market. Very strong cash flow. Dividend yield of 3.51%. (Analysts’ price target is $22.65.)

Not an expensive stock. On the switching side, they’ve not been able to get that to grow more aggressively which has really hurt them. They’ve augmented the slower growth by making acquisitions and buying assorted things. Now they are going to get squeezed on the margin side. The numbers are going to be OK numbers, but you can put your money in other places and do better. Over the next couple of years, you may get some margin compression, as their switching business is just not running on all cylinders.

He bought more when it fell because it was massively discounted. Also, management gave very poor guidance about what was happening to a lot of their businesses. Feels their core businesses really has good opportunities on the FinTech side, in the US specifically, and the stock can slowly go up. Pays a decent yield.

A purely commercial/retail banker in the UK. They understand how to do retail very, very well. Secondly, they’ve exited a lot of their other businesses and became a solely UK bank. Very cost effective bank. Management is very strong and are going to continue to increase dividends. This is a great story.
