TJX Companies Inc.: "TJX, the largest position in my charitable trust, and it's been hurting. Why? Because it's caught up with all these ETFs on retail. Chart's awful. I think the business is good. I am going to say wait until it goes back to $68 and then pull the trigger."

I'd pick that one up even more than [Cognizant]. "
