He likes the engineering space because they will benefit from infrastructure spending. They are breaking out to all time highs. This is a bullish thing for the stock. Forward earnings estimates make this not look that expensive. Stay with it until we start to break trend, moving below $43. (Analysts’ target $51.50). He does not like the risk/reward and so does not like it. He does not like it short term. You can stick with it if the trend continues, but there is not a lot of upside potential.

The problem with it is that the stock is fairly well valued. There has not been a lot of movement in the earnings for quite a while. It has been trading about its fair market value. It needs its earnings moving.
