    My take on Earnings

    Here are the highlights from earnings that stood out for me. Average Dry container leasing rates were down 4.3%, Refer container rates were down 3.2%, Special container lease rates were down 5.7%. Used container prices declined 7%. Equipment operating expenses were up 8.9%. Interest on debt increased 8.6%. I dont see any of these metrics moving in the right direction. Clearly understandable why the price of this stock is trending lower.

    • All your "Trends" are miniscule and you cant tell anything with a single quarters numbers. What MY take is: EPS Inline, Beats Revenue of $156.10M vs $153.12M Est and Raises Dividend 3%. With govts worldwide opening the $$ floodgates and an improving US employment picture commerce is only going to increase. Stay long and get paid to wait.

      Sentiment: Buy

      • These trends have been going on for 2 quaters now. The only reason they continue to grow earnings is by continuing to make more debt to buy new conatianers. If they stop buying new containers their earnins would start declining. How long do you think they can continue to spend and keep adding debt to cover up the fact their key stats are deteriorating. Stocks down another .92 today cant say i didnt warn you. I think this isnt worth buying till atleast below $35. At that point the yeild is worth the risk.

    • Looks like the "trending lower" was over a few days ago and we are now on the mend.
