    Here we go again

    Let me tell you, I am right there with you - have ended up scratching my head the past few quarters...

    Even bought some calls into earnings that screamed up in value only to... expire worthless.

    TRN utterly boggles my mind...

    Execution and results both excellent.

    Backlog --> phenomenal

    Valuation ratios ---> RIDICULOUSLY low

    Looking at this upcoming quarter, EPS estimates are for a decline year over year... If we beat again to the upside, I'm thinking it HAS to go back into the mid $30s....

    Of course, have thought the same the last few calls....

    My entry point was $36 last September and I have been more than happy with quarterly results ever since... Share price somehow down nearly 25% though... unreal.

    A fan of mythology as well as Camus, I can MORE than identify with that Sisyphus reference....
