The Dow Jones Transports were a notable underperformer in Q3, -3.4% vs. +6.6% for the DJIA, and they trailed the broader market again today. Overseas Shipholding (OSG -6.4%) was a notable laggard within the group, and railroads remained weak: CSX -1.7%, KSU -1.5%. If economic data stays sluggish, it's just a question of when, not if, declining transports bleed into the broader market.
