Builders and their customers love a material that is recycled and wears essentially forever. Trex is entering new markets with their heavy-duty plastic building material and shows creative thinking.

I am intrigued by the potential new market TREX may try to enter by leveraging existing propriatary recycling techniques that was discussed in the Febrary conference call. Not a lot of detail was given but just that it was a new market, that was already lined up. We'll see what this adds at all to the top line. Other than that, it is a well run company, strong balance sheet and good operating cash flow. Should play well as housing continues to recover, and keep an eye on this mystery industry they will be trying to enter. I imagine more details to come at Q2 earnings.

This stock (which I used to own) has been hammered by the economic downturn, for sure. It was in fact a disappointment when I held it, and I've been out of it for a few years. It's made something of a comeback, and I think it's poised for a nice rebound along with the inevitable recovery of the housing market.

institutional ownership already seems a bit high for such a small company. as the commercial real estate mess unravels further in 2009 & as economic recovery in real terms appears to be further & further into the future, this stock is likely to see volatile movements on the downside.

Short Squeeze. This was at 7.50 during the time of the release of a grim 4Q and has only gone up since then. Get your money in now, because it's only inevitable that this stock go down with the continued housing market slump.

T-rex has been hit a macroeconomic and bad management meteor.

When people can't sell their homes and are pinched by high oil and high food prices, they aren't going to be too inclined to drop a boatload of money on home improvement projects. Recent studies have shown that the return on your home improvement projects is the lowest it's been in decades (it was recently around 90 cents on the dollar now it's about 70 cents). This is very bad news for T-rex as they make wood/plastic composite decking and railing materials, which by many is undoubtedly viewed as luxury item. They essentially have no customers in an environment like this and it shows in their declining sales.

T-rex however was struggling before the housing went to pot and it really shows now. Their financials are absolutely awful.

Return on Assets (TTM) -23.10

long term debt to equity 1.40

long term debt of 131.73 million (a nearly 160% increase over thr prior year)

Price to free cash flow -4.50

Cash and Cash equivalents 0.07

and last but not least a

Quick ratio of 0.10

T-Rex is in real danger of going extinct. Stay away from this dieing Dino.
