They sell water and gas heaters to the US residential market, but their expansion into China has caused pain with a big drop in Q1 revenues. They're very good managers in a niche market. Trades at 20x earnings, but growth has really softened. Share price is too high. The downside will come from weakening US home sales. Other headwinds: China tariffs. He'd exit here.

A grand slam, though they are facing more competition. He wishes he had bought this. China doesn't use credit cards and rather they use online payments--this is a longterm headwind. But Visa's free cash flow is great. Apple Pay is also coming.

The impact of global warming Climate change will have an impact (flooding), so property casualty companies can raise rates--they can reprice every year. He likes this sector. Climate change will impact these companies, but not negatively.

A cyclical stock, so wait till it's beaten up. AA is in good shape with strong cash flow and they're a low-cost producer. China has cut back on capacity, so we're close to a turn.

It's suffering like Kraft with almost no revenue or earnings growth with a PE of 20. Their brands are not the best.

The whole drug sector is under pressure, because every country is managing costs, including America. It's a cash flow industry struggling to maintain growth. Revenues are flatlining. But it's a defensive sector with solid, growing dividends, so he's reluctant to sell them.

Trades at a high 25x earnings for a rock-solid group of beverages with decent dividend growth. Overall, it's too pricey for him.
