Pro formerly owned Quanta Services(PWR). According to Yahoo Finance, PWR provides specialty contracting services to the electric power and oil and gas industries in North America and internationally.

Pro liked the stock even when they divested 4 years ago, which they did primarily because PWR was relatively high priced and had several quarters of negative earnings at the time. But the track record since then has been a good one of increasing earnings, increasing cash flow, and increasing share price. When Pro sold PWR in Jan 2011, PWR's PE was 27. Now it is about 16. Until this past fall, PWR's price has been growing in line with the S&P500. With the recent dip in price, might this be a good time to revisit PWR for the Pro port?
