Travis recommends Unit , which deals in oil reserves and oil rigs.

"With the government printing money like they're going to be in this new stimulus bill, I want to buy some hard assets," he said.

He also likes gold producer Newmont Mining .

"The've got 92 million ounces in reserve, and you can pull them out of the ground at $400 an ounce, and sell them all day today at $950 an ounce," he said. "We can definitely get a higher asset value than the share price."

Also on his list is Chemed .

"Their best-known brand is Roto-Rooter, but the other part of the business, which is not as well known, is Vitas, which is in the hospice business, and I think that's a necessary and growing business," he said.
