Hawaii - USA West Coast - a shipping industry route with the Jones Act moat. You can't trade between the Islands and USA unless you have USA containerships..low bunker fuel costs and growing Hawaiian economy makes this a safe harbor for your money...

Expanding into the Alaska market with Horizon Lines acquisition makes strategic sense. They now can cover the Pacific, Dutch Harbor to Guam and beyond. Expects approximately $0.35 to $0.45 of annual EPS accretion. Yet the slowdown in the world economy could be a substantial headwind.

It's had a great run but doesn't strike me as an excellent company; strikes me as a slightly above average company with extreme economic tailwinds and we might be a bit high in the cycle. Also, the company is benefiting from the Jones Act, which keeps out foreign competition -- but that could be repealed and in general I don't favor businesses that can operate less efficiently by fiat. Plus, I want a few more red thumbs. Underperform (though not stated with high confidence or any animus).

Facing competitor is struggling in market. Likely will shut down or will be acquired. Matson is well positioned to capitalize on opportunities. stock will appreciate into the $40's within 12 months.
