    All I can say is W-O-W !!!!!!

    Utterly obliterated estimates.... guidance a little light though.... but perhaps they're just cautious historically, no?

    Either way, helluva quarter (understatement).

    • What events are you looking for? I've traded this stock in the past and made a little on it. I sold ahead of earnings and didn't buy after earnings. What indicators or announcements will signify a bottom to you? Would almost matching it's yearly low mean something or is it a fundamental change or announcement from the company you're looking for? Is it general economic news?

    • Your kidding right ? Flat year coming up and "margin compression", only the hokey accounting of the TRIP sales makes it look good. You'll be lucky if the price holds here.
      Sooner or later their accounting will catch up with them.

      • Why dont you expand on your amature comments. What is it about leasing that you dont understand. There are plenty of accounting rules (FASB 13) that deal with revenue recognition and lease transactions. Stop implying that there is an issue with the accounting of the company.

      • So if 2008 is flat the PE is what, still around 12. This is a great quarter, compare it to RAIL. I am sure it will flucuate, but still a great long term play. Some of you are probably still wanting to replace Wallace. I would like to commend him on a great quarter, and if I have to hold a company that has flat revenue in the railcar division, with a PF of 12, I could do worse. Look at the growth in the other divisions, I believe this will continue. This is a well ran company with tremendous backlog, and diversification in other divisions that will help in 2008. Railcars may be flat in 08, but they won't be, look around. Read what Wallace says, he seems to tell the truth. Good Luck.
