Stephen mentioned a couple of new shares as possibilities, Hunting who manufacture tubes for steel drilling – the share price has increased from £6 to £7 and growth opportunities exist. Sondex which manufactures equipment for inspecting oil wells and whose operating profit is up 40% and share price is £3.59.
