TWST: What are some of your favorite names right now and why do you like them?

Mr. Lewis: Well, as a matter of fact, based on the current portfolio holdings, we like energy. In the energy sector, for instance, we currently hold HollyFrontier (HFC). HFC is a petroleum refiner that has seen very strong revenue growth over the past five and 10 years, and has good returns on equity. And yet, it trades at a very low price-to-earnings ratio when compared to other refiners and also to the industry at large. So we have a position in that.

We also like the industrial machinery industry. One example is Joy Global (JOY), a manufacturer and servicer of mining equipment. That's another strong area that we like for the portfolio, and the screening metrics are all looking good. Recently, the stock was actually down about 40% from its February 2012 high. We think that looks like a very attractive value right here.
