The companies we like are those which have continued ability to grow and a clear plan of action which we believe they will be able to implement steadily, adjusting to inevitable gusts, but able to maintain a steady course even in changing circumstances. Any well-run company of this type is one that we would like to have on the radar screen, as analysis often takes us months; we can then be in a position to buy when valuations are fair or better. We have a number of these, and have added one new one recently. We have many more candidates on the watchlist or yet to research, but are always happy to hear of more.
