PVN, MXT (both bot out), RRI, WMB, OMG, Healthsouth, USG, CALM, BAC, FITB, KEY, and many others.
Other than secular niche growth stories like MNST, TRLG, CMG, UA and many others that is what I do.
DD is reading SEC filings, analyzing financial statements, talking to retailers, knowing ppl in industry, investigating management, etc.
This is what, other than my child, fills my life with entertainment and produces outsized returns.
If those are the types of plays you like, and turnarounds in general, then I would highly suggest that you have a close look at PDEX. Read the SEC filings, read what governance activities have taken place, and what is going on. I have a large position there, so I'm obviously biased. They announce earnings on Monday, so it may be best to wait to see what gets said.
I always like to lok at possible plays, however this one is way out of my areas of expertise, except Ive been known to go to the dentist :)
I stick with stuff I can put my arms around, retail, financial, and companies with simple business models where I can do on the street research. I played the energy companies too, but that was just a case of knowing people who knew the industry and the fear after the enron collapse.
I just own REED and JSDA and am going to buy a chunk in another company which I will talk about at a later date.
