Entry and Exit Points
- Solid support at $36 from previous highs going back to January ’16.
- I would sell at $50 if I believed the price was inflated compared to intrinsic value.
- I like GBX, but I like them at $36. Under a Trump administration, railroads and railways are going to be expanding and innovating. I like GBX as a small cap value play because they also pay a dividend, have solid management, and strong financials.
