He once owned it. Printing, a major segment of theirs, is in secular decline, but they've seen good growth in packaging after making an acquisition. Trades at a low multiple. It's a stock worth looking at. Could be value here.

He once owned it and did well for him. It's a big operator of auto-repair shops. They've been acquiring a lot and consolidating. But they trade at a high multiple.

(Past Top Pick on Feb. 15, 2018, Up 3%) Still likes it, though it's been sideways. Had a nice pop today with good earnings. What's driving them is that globally farmers are under-invested in storage, so AFN can benefit in the next few years.

(Past Top Pick on Feb. 15, 2018, Up 29%) An acquisition last year accelerated their move into the Cloud which is higher growth. The market didn't appreciate this move until MNW announced a few solid quarters. Then it was announced a private equity company would acquire MNW. Currently, they're in a period where MNW can field other offers. He still holds it.

(Past Top Pick on Feb. 15, 2018, Down 4.5%) Good report today and enjoyed a pop. It's a misunderstood story Delphi split into two companies; this one is their powertrain unit where there are good growth drivers. Now, there's just noise in the stock. Be patient.

They have a massive amount of cash, repatriating a lot of it, and are doing a huge share buyback. They project strong growth in their services segment. Caveat: iPhones are still over 60% of what they make--how sustainable is this? Overall, you can do a lot worse than Apple. They've executed very well this past qurater. It won't hurt to own Apple.
