Today I added shares to Insperity. We had a very small holding of just 7 shares and with the share price down roughly 15% from our original buy it was time to add with today's sell-off. Any company that provides tools and services that improve productivity grabs my attention.

Mix Telematics (MIXT)
Today I added shares to Mix Telematics. The stock has sold off recently and today's broad market sell-off is offering us a 52-week low on the stock. I simply can't resist a 52-week low in a good company. Trucking is important to every economy and making trucking more efficient is one area where the money will be made over the next decade. The US trucking market alone is worth $700 billion. Globally, trucking is a $1.2 trillion dollar industry.
