This is the premier global investment bank. They are the best run bank in this space. They were not damaged in the financial crisis. But Goldman Sachs has suffered along with the other large banks. Investors have the chance to buy it now near 11 times current earnings and perhaps 9 times next year’s earnings. They are the only major investment bank that has fewer shares outstanding now than before the financial crisis. It continues to use its free cash flow to buy back shares. Fewer large banks are involved in trading activities, and margins for Goldman Sachs’ trading continue to be very strong. Goldman has a new CEO, which causes some concern. However, Goldman has a great track record with management transitions; he expects this to go well. Yield 01.4%. (Analysts’ price target $273.72)

This is another of the great Japanese companies. 75-year old track record. More than half the share price is in net cash. It is a global leader in metal form press equipment and robotics for the auto sector and electronics sector. Japan leads the world in industrial robotics. His estimated fair value for Aida is more than double the current share price. Japan should benefit from the recent trade agreement, but its market has been out of favour for decades. Large firms are beginning to recommend Japan again. Cycles don’t last forever and it is better to buy when a sector is cheap. Yield 2.9%. (Analysts’ price target ¥1240.00 )
