+ Watch WNC
on My Watchlist
The Compay designs manufactures and markets standard and customized truck trailers and related transportation equipment.
Small cap that looks like it has finally has it's act together. Quality earnings over the last two years, ROIC is healthy, and FCF is growing. Even after the latest run this is still selling a a reasonable price. A boring un-sexy business that looks like it has some room to run. This is also a highly recognizable name brand in the industry.
Currently Wabash National Corp is rated as a undervalued stock and has the potential to see future growth. Valued at 10.93 today, the stock has a potential valuation increase to 18.00. This jump would be a nice one to see but even so the minimum analyst price is in at 13.00 which is still 2.00 higher than the current valuation.
just saying... this two star motley fool stock is my best performing stock currently in my fool's portfolio. The rest of my current MF stocks are 4 and 5 stars and are doing terrible and have been for quite some time. I didn't find this stock through motley fools either.
Trucks are expensive to replace, but now that since many of them are 20-30 years old, they need to be replaced. It is estimated that about 100 million more trucks will be on the road by 2015 so WNC will benefit. Take a look at recent share prices of CMI NAV and PCAR and how much they have increased in the past year. CMI was the best performer in the S&P 500. There is a clear demand that is only getting started for what these trucks carry across the country and as more and more truck fleets need to be replaced, I think WNC's share price will increase.
Trucking Companies quit buying in 2009 due to uncertainty. With the economy picking up, they have to begin buying replacements, that is a given. Trailers will not last forever. Cheap at $10, look for two bagger within the year....
They build truck trailers... and nothing short of annihilation will stop the shipping industry for this country. It is a sure thing... only devious mismanagement could make this company a loser.
World War is the only proven method for restating global economic values when insolvent imbalances occur like the ones we have today. While true a significant amount of spending for WWIII will be on cyber and space based weapons and defenses, military victory always has and always will rely upon the physical invasion and occupation of foreign territories. It is going to be extremely hard for the U.S. to import the necessary equipment and military gear from foreign countries because A. Shipping will be severely disrupted; and B. The U.S. will be at war with some of the top manufacturing producers around the world.Because a key objective of WWIII will be to re-balance U.S. and Asian treasury values, one way or the other these two interests have to be on opposing sides for the post-conflict banking system to work its magic.U.S. domestic manufacturing capacity will become a necessity unless the U.S. surrenders its currency valuation without a fight. Given the spoiled nature of most American's however, it is doubtful they will acquiesce to the severe decline in living standards needed to make up for the past several decades of excesses. It is going to be even harder for the Europeans.If the U.S. dollar survives as a currency through WWIII, investments in U.S. manufacturing companies will get a double bump. One from the war-time spending and the other from the deflation of defeated foreign currencies.Of course if the U.S. loses, or decides not to fight at all, then any investment based on U.S. currency is going to be a huge loser for the same reasons.
Benefit from a rebounding transport sector with solid customer base of the best performing truckers, significantly reduced cost base and experienced leadership and ownership.

analysts say sell, but institutional ownership is very high. this is a good contrarian choice.
Downsizing taking place. Profits will rise
Call me a fossil, but I just love market leaders with reasonable PEs that are based in the Midwest and actually produce something tangible.
Wabash's management is selling shareholders down the river.
