Greenbrier Companies is turning things around and I in no way feel they are a disaster case, but they are trading considerably higher than I would currently value them. GBX has eroded shareholder value by 20% year over year and will not have a profitable quarter until late 2010 or 2011. They're trading very aggressively at 34 times 2011's figures despite mid-single digit growth and they filed to offer even more debt over the past week. It's just simply not worth $16 and long should take their money and run at these levels.UltraLong

I think somebody is "stealing" picks again... :)

FWIW, I'm long GBX (and I like it a lot).

Good call in 2010, but I'd be worried about keeping this open if I were you.
