RS, TWIN, SCHN, MLR, HURC

I sold Reliance Steel & Aluminum now that it is near a 3 year high. 26 shares @ $89.71 for a 17.6% gain.

I bought the following positions:

Twin Disc Inc. – TWIN – 130 shares @ $15.175

Miller Industries – MLR – 63 shares @ $31.7125

Schnitzer Steel Industries – SCHN – 88 shares @ $22.50

Hurco Companies – HURC – 51 shares $38.00

Today’s buy trades bring my invested position back up to 70%. Prior to this week’s buys, I was nearly 50% cash.

BDL

I purchased 100 shares of Flanigan’s Enterprises (BDL). I think it is an exceptional company at a bargain price. It is largely ignored due to its market capitalization of $44.6 million. It is small enough to stay out of the Russell 2,000 and has no analyst coverage.

I should have the detailed write up finished this weekend.

AGX & UTHR

I sold 53 shares of Argan at $48.44 today. I also sold 16 shares of UTHR at $99.35. Neither position are as cheap when I bought it and expand my cash balance for what I think is coming.

This brings my cash balance up to 38% of my portfolio.

FAF

First American Financial (FAF) is near its 52-week high (and the price the last time I sold it). It’s significantly above the single-digit P/E in December and is now up to a P/E of 13.74. I sold 46 shares @ $56.68 for a gain of 30%.

First American Financial is a great company and I will definitely be interested again if the price gets absurd again.
