    TRN earnings came in at 43¢ share, estimate was 23¢. 85% over estimate.

    I'm ahead and holding for now. Oscillators look good.
    I like this company - manufacturing for rails and wind energy.

    However that little voice in my head says "Sell in May and stay away"
    I'm 75% in cash currently.

    • Sell in normally in a average inflated spring market. Although this market could go down a little, there are to many recent investors that are getting in to be long into fall and beyond........GREAT QTR ...We're going up

      • I hear ya the experts all say we will re-test lows! They do not know shi*! well we might and well we might not, don't listen to the so called experts! Understand your time frames and risk exposures and do whats best for yourself! Listening to the CRAMERS of the world is a quick trip too the poor house. TrN will see 20+ as the fund will want to own it for the window dressing, front runners all of them.

    • Reread the report, 20 cents of it was for sales of rail cars which was not included in estimates. So actually they just met estimates of 0.23, but good for such a rough time.

      • OK so take out the 15¢ (see PR below) and still that's 28¢ per share. It still looks like they bet the estimates average of 23¢.
        I'm still feel fine because they sold the railcars to their own railcar leasing company.

        I'll try to listen to the conference call tomorrow.
