If you like value, this is your company. Auto and auto parts has recently, in the last 3-4 weeks, made a nice turn. We are starting to get away from all the discussion about peak auto. This company is significantly cheaper than any other large parts producer or subassembly company. They have a great growth engine within the business, being the largest and complete auto assembling outsourced. There was about $2 billion in sales in 2016, which could be $7 billion by 2019. They are just taking over producing half of all the 5 series BMWs globally. Trading at 8X earnings, which is relatively cheap compared to its competitors.

A construction company contractor in 3 basic areas. Oil/gas infrastructure pipelines, electric transmission/power generation and communications. They build out infrastructure, and are benefiting as the communication companies build out additional gear on all their towers. There has been a bunch of new pipeline capacity approved that will be built out. Because of electric cars, it is possible we are going to need additional generation and transmission capabilities. (Analysts’ price target is $52.50.)

The largest homebuilder in the world. They operate in 27 states and have $12 billion in revenue. New home sales are growing at greater than 10% in the majority of US states. The inventory of new homes going back to 1988, is just off the lows. The problem has been not enough homes. This company sells into the entry level buyer, and the millennials are just starting to buy homes. If there is a prolonged, economic, slow expansion, there is a pent-up demand for new homes. Dividend yield of 1.1%. (Analysts’ price target is $38.)

Also, it is pretty levered to the US economy. 1.7% dividend yield.
