This is a core holding for him. The value of the real estate holdings alone are $200 per share. It is a hard company to value as half the company is recurring revenue and half is land sales. He is not sure how price reconnects with value – perhaps a matter of time.

It is a binary situation. If anyone can turn around the company it is the new CEO – his track record is incredible. The power division remains weak and the capital side is under reserved. He would wait to see improvement.

This is one of two spin offs from Honeywell. This company is less than 1% of the market cap of Honeywell. It trades at less than 3 times earnings. One of the overhangs relates to asbestos in the brakes division. The low PE foretells doom. The company has top market share in auto turbo-chargers and that segment is growing.

He likes it because nobody likes it. It is former Valiant Pharmaceuticals and trades at 6 times cash-flow. He encourages investors to look beyond its checkered past. It has high quality recurring cash-flows in the contact lens division. Every division is growing organically. It does have a high debt load, but the trajectory of cash flow will elevate that risk. Yield 0%. (Analysts’ price target is $35.39)
