Another stock in your portfolio is Tempur-pedic. Do you think we need a housing rebound to get people to buy mattresses again?

Hodges: You would think so. But this stock has been moving higher despite the troubles in the housing sector. They have done a tremendous job in marketing. They have bucked the trend. The have a new, softer mattress that are performing very well. Previously they only catered to the hard-mattress crowd, so they have really expanded their market. And when housing finally does recover, we think there will be another leg up in the stock.

You are also a fan of Apple (AAPL) supplier Omnivision (OVTI). This stock has had a nice move up -- can it keep its momentum?

Hodges: We think so. This company makes the optical sensors for the iPhone and there is an expectation that it will also have its components in the iPad. Both of those products have enormous growth potential. But even aside from those huge markets, there are other places for Omnivision's sensors, like in automobiles. So we see a lot of growth ahead for this company, and its stock.
