Trinity makes the rail cars that move the newly fracked petroleum out of places like North Dakota to other places where it can be refined. Current administration is loath to approve a new pipeline so this material has to go by rail. Recently the press has seized on explosions caused by cars not built for more volatile oils. It is only good news for Trinity because they need to make more cars. Trinity only leases cars so the railroads can keep them for 100 years and still be paying on them. If the fuel eventually gets to a port, Trinity benefits again because they make the US barges required by the Jones Act to ship petroleum port to port.

It is a cheap stock on a p/e basis and has a high roa. At the same time, demand is increasing.

Diverse industrial products and services. Nice momentum, price driven, record back load of rail car orders. An ancillary way to invest in oil and gas. Demand for railcars increasing due to age of fleets and regulations. I bought at around 87. Still a buy at this price. I plan to buy more on dips.

Trinity is going places. Considering how the pipeline infrastructure out of the Bakkan is lacking, rail cars will be needed to hall oil to refineries and port.

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.

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%.
