    Frpm Credit Suisse 10/13/14: Strong Start for Stone, Sand, and Gravel: Shipments of crush stone, sand, and gravel were up 13.5% y/y to start Q4. While
    this was less than the 17.8% gain in Q3, the weekly gain was stronger than last week's 9.9% increase. Nearly every Class I
    carrier had double-digit increases for the commodity type. Carloads grew 52.4% at CP, 22.3% at BNSF, 21.0% at CNI,
    18.9% at UNP, and 15.1% at NSC."

    ANOTHER DROPDOWN

    I'm using an exit rate of 1.60 for the distribution and figuring it will go down to a 6% yield, which gives a price of around $26.60 for the shares by year end. I like the odds here since the revenues are looking very predictable. I sure hope those ice breakers are heavily insured. Anybody know how they insure their ships?

    Report today indicates that we're at trough rates for leasing boxes for the rest of the year. Some people can't sit still on a 6% dividend until 2015. I added near the lows today, and will come back for more if it busts down below $40. This is a non-taxed divvy, and CFO says it will remain that way for a long time. Better than a muni bond these day.

    This is a corporate re-organization, not a dividend. Dividend xd dates don't apply. Hold through the close Aug. 4th if you want the PGN shares. Sounds strange, but "XD date" is Aug. 4th, 3 days after the Aug 1 date. Ask to speak to your broker's "Re-Org" dept.
