They're about to finish acquring Sky in the UK. A very promising company. They know this business, and there's a lot of synergy in this deal. Sky has an outstanding user interface which has eluded North American systems and encouraged cord-cutting here. Comcast is levering a little, but generating strong free cash flow. They won't buy back stocks, but overall the Sky deal is a great move.

A great business positioned well in OS and the Cloud for enterprises--which is a strong secular tailwind. They are still gaining business as they move to a subscription-based system. MSFT generates a lot of free cash flow that will increase dividends over time. They hold a lot of cash that they will repatriate from overseas. A good business, and, yes, a little expensive, so he would add to a position to some degree, though not huge.

The chip space is down to three players occuping 95% of the market, so these companies are focussed on earning investor returns. AI and self-driving cars will be a tailwind. Yes, the stock has traded off from $60 to $40 a share. InvestorS saw this as a deeply cyclical company. True, but he sees this as a growth cyclical company. It has a lot of free cash flow and has promised a large share buyback.

A semi-conductor equipment company, selling parts for the semis' production lines. Semis are being used in more and more applications in, say, cars and data centres as A.I. grows. AMAT is a big player in producing semis. But there are
concerns about cyclicality, but overall this business is attractive.

Their only competition is Airbus, and Boeing is producing well. They are growing their services business to increase margins. This may work. Plus, there's growing air travel, which is a tailwind. Their free cash flow is interesting, but the stock is a little expensive on the earnings side.
