    What I noticed immediately that has me questioning

    Why are they paying the CEO $1.6 million for a truck trailer company?

    • because he is the CEO of the largest trailer manufacturing company in the world..... How much do CEO's of other leading companies in their respective fields earn!?!?!? Come on really, coming from a cyclical market that almost shut the doors at WNC 2 1/2 years ago to diversifying and purchasing 2 tank trailer manufacturing companies (purchaing Brenner Tank and Beall Corp). What do you think a man who controls 1000's of jobs and many stock holders investments at his finger tips is worth? We want to pay athletes millions of dollars and college football/basketball coaches millions of dollars a year and you don't think the man who runs a Huge company like WNC is worth 1.6 million. I know I don't want the guy who will do it for 100k a year doing the job, cuz he's probably not qualified!! Why are you even investing if you are asking these kinds of questions?

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
