remember that S&P just gave the company a STRONG BUY (A STRONG BUY). Again they raised '13 and '14 EPS estimates to $4.60 and $5.50, from $4.00 and $4.80. They raised 12-month target price by $5 to $65, about 12X our '14 EPS estimate, toward the lower end of TRN's historical P/E range. Q3 EPS is $1.26, vs. $0.79, beating our $0.90 estimate on stronger railcar revenues than we expected with operating margin improvement. TRN guides to '13 EPS of $4.55-$4.65, up from $4.20-$4.40. Backlog remained strong. They like TRN's highly visible revenue stream, strong backlog and think the valuation looks compelling at 8.4X '14 estimate.

"Some people will say the glass is half full; others say it's half empty. I see the future for Titan as the best I've ever seen. Why? We have many opportunities on the horizon."
"You can see why I believe the glass is half full and how we are going to grow. In short, the agriculture market is still strong. Pricing is dropping due to lower cost materials. Our revenue should stay the same because our market share should grow. The construction tire and wheel business should grow double digits in 2014 if the OEM forecasts stay where they predict. As Titan focuses on all the specialty wheels and tires, we should see improvement in margins."
