I should have bought this one a few days ago, but I think that it still has room to run. My father brought it to my attention, having bought in in November.

"We need more rail cars to haul all the crude oil from N. Dakota to eastern and southern markets. The pipelines are out of position. Even if the Keystone pipeline is approved it will be years before it carries oil.

There are approximately 94,000 tank rail cars in the U.S. Of which only 14,000 meet the new safety standards currently under review in Washington. BNSF railroad last week announced they were converting their tank car fleet to meeting the upgraded standard and placed an order for 5,000 new tank cars. Other carriers are likely to follow even without new government regulations. With new regulations all the railroads will upgrade."

Trinity is positioning itself to be the go-to provider of cryogenic shipping containers. Anyone who wants to ship natural gas across the country will be buying from them.

I like their position in the rail car sector along with their diversity. I think they can weather or recover a storm better than most.

The demand for tanker cars to support the oil and gas industry will push this company upward.

Somebody has to build the new rail cars to haul the oil and gas after they outlaw the oil ones now being used. Nice dividend.

This is another stock I am in the process of buying for one of my investment clubs, so it will be a real-life holding for me in about a week. I presented this stock partially due to its good recent performance and on the expectation that all the grown in the shale oil plays will increase the need for more tanker cars for railroads, which is one of this company's main products.

Sales have grown at about a 13% average annual rate since 2009. EPS has grown at about a 58% annual rate since 2011, (and would be more if I included from 2009, in which year they had a loss).

The pre-tax profit margin almost doubled from 2010 through 2012, so that is strong growth. The earned-on-equity almost quadrupled during that time. Also, the company has been paying down its long-term debt during that time, from 175% to 152%, though 152% is still pretty high, though not terrible for a heavy-industry manufacturer.

The current P/E is above its recent averages, so the stock has been bid up some due to its recent performance. The PEG ratio is very low, at about 0.23. The stock also pays a small dividend yield of about 2%.

I think this stock could more than double in the next 5 years. Add in that dividend yield, and you could be looking at annual returns of 18% or more during each of those 5 years. That is significantly above the long-term average for the market as a whole. I just hope that my investing thesis pays off for my investment club members.

This company supports the needs of large scale infrastructure: bridges, overpasses, railroad cars and locomotives. As the economy rebuilds their products will be in demand. Shares I purchased a year ago are up 50%.

Backlog of rail car orders and pending legislation regarding the retro fitting of older oil cars. Future forecasting is rather easy because the sales are made. The Boeing of the railcar world.

Seems like a totally solid company and long-term investment. Not quite exciting enough or relevant enough for me personally, but certainly the kind of investment that I think can serve as part of a foundation of a winning stock market portfolio. Outperform.

Oil from the newly discovered shale oil discoveries is usually NOT located near pipelines. This oil is being moved by rail TRN builds the oil tank cars to move the oil and then leases them to the railroad companies. They have a huge backlog.

Trinity is a broad spread on transportation and on energy. They make railcars and barges, needed by the RRs and river transpoes, whatever their current business. They also are involved in wind energy. GE and other conglomerates may also be casting eyes on this obscure but pivotal company.
