A Few More To Watch

Don't have much too much to say, but, I wanted to throw a few companies your way to keep an eye on. I have no current plan on owning any of them, but one each is interesting to me as a potential future investment. I haven't done much in researching yet, but at the moment, they are all on my radar.

P.H. Glatfelter (GLT) - This is an old company. When I say old, I mean it. It was founded during the Civil War. The company manufactures specialty papers and also high-tech paper. Their products range from the simple, like tea bags and coffee filters, to the sophisticated, like pressure-sensitive paper and metallized holographic paper.

Cutter & Buck (CBUK) - This is a small cap that sells golf sportswear as well as business and casual clothing for those in the mid-thirties or older. Not surprisingly, they cater mostly to the yuppie crowd. In addition to standard clothing, they also sell sportswear with college and professional team logos. In the last year or so, the company was highlighted in the Motley Fool's Hidden Gems newsletters.

TODCO (THE) - The company's name stands for "The Offshore Drilling Company." The company does contract drilling for oil and gas, mostly concentrating on shallow-water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. They own a variety of drilling rigs, and customers rent them along with a qualified crew on a day rate basis. Additionally, they also operate their own fleet of ships and boats, which complements operations.
