Positive:
- Backlog for railroad tank-cars at highest level ever.
- Earnings were good, margins went up.

Negative:
- If (a big IF) oil prices go down much further the positive trends for the company can stall.
- Insiders have started selling in a big way. But they own a lot and the price was never higher, so its understandable and must not hint for trouble.

Large maker of oil carts used to transport oil via rail in the States – only way to get stranded oil to market (which is becoming bigger by volume), recent law suits against rivals also help (below left pipeline, right oil basins – not all big basins are well served (yet))

This stock is undervalued. The just announced a huge jump in top line revenue growth equivalent to~50% of existing revs.
What other heavy manufacturing company can claim this type of a surge?
Look at the low price/sales, and then factor what this top line bump will do to earnings and hence P/E.
Could easily justify $100 share price

GBX, ARII, and TRN will all benefit from the redesign of tank car to haul crude oil from the Dakotas. Since GBX is the smaller company the effect on stock price will be greater, but so will the risks.

backlog of orders will keep income steady/rising for years to come. not very deversified by a definite target for take over given its relatively small size

This company recently bought out Meridian Rail and is in transition.

Their stock has been down in cyclic times and has always comeback. They had a 4% dividend paid out even in this time of recession and previously had 8% dividends paid out each quarter consistently in the year before. They have managers and vice presidents with over 25 years of experience in the industry and they have all weathered the down cycle and know that it will pass and they will be on top again. Combined with the recession it took a big dive but that only means when it's the boom time again the stock will be headed up with a bullet. My inexperienced opinion from interpretting the history, is that this is a buy and hold in order to make a very very lucrative profit. This company has crushed the competitors in the area and bought up the others and is always looking to the future and building on it's strengths and management.

You will not regret this investment, rail is here to stay and this company is vital to it's continuation.

Railroads are finally coming back, and GBX provides a range of freight cars and components, as well as servicing and refurbishing their cars and cars for other companies. It also leases cars, and manufacturers ocean-going barges.. Sounds like a very well-rounded company.

Greenbrier is owned by CSX. Greenbrier owns many short line railroads and they are making record profits and will continue as long as fuel prices are high.
