Three Wetter is Better Shares

By Gary Scott

We are looking at the philosophy of investing in water. This philosophy has economics that support it. $1,000 invested in water utility stocks at the end of 1981 grew $39,980 at the end of 2001, more than double the growth of S&P 500. The fundamentals are even better. More people equal less water and higher prices. Here are three ideas for investing in water.

Insituform Technologies, a leader in trench less water line replacement. Their Insituform process is the most widely used trench less method for restoring structural integrity to and removing infiltration from sewers. It has been proven in pipes with a wide range of shapes and in diameters of up to nine feet (2.75 m). In the Insituform process, a resin-impregnated tube is installed into a damaged sewer. This process results in a seamless, jointless" pipe-within-a-pipe" with a smooth, continuous inner surface which usually increases flow capacity. The company typically completes installations in a single day, using robotic methods to restore active
connections from within the line.

This month the company begins a project awarded by the City of Reno. This is the largest sewer rehabilitation contract in the city's history, an $8.5 million contract to rehabilitate more than seven miles of medium- and large-diameter sewers. This project follows on the heels of a nearly $3.5 million project in which Insituform rehabilitated more than three and one-third miles of the city's deteriorated sewer lines.

Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., each own more than 10% of a class of stock in Great Lakes Chemical Corporation. This company is listed on NYSE: Code GLK. Hyflux, the company I have invested in is in the business of water and fluid treatment with proprietary membrane technology. This year the company's profits tripled to $31.8 million. The company has expanded from its work in China to the Middle East as well and the ME business now represents 49% of their income. China represents 46% of their business.The company's order book is up 42% to Singapore $336 million and operating margins improved from 35% to 37%. I like this as a play in strong Asian currencies as well.

This is the tip of a very big, very wet opportunity iceberg, and I hope these ideas help you enjoy good global investing!
