  • Ensco Has Become A Great Value Play [View article]
    I am down significantly in ESV, on paper. Let me repeat...on paper. I am of the opinion that, on balance, ESV is the best driller out there mostly due to its formidable management bench and conservative financial approach. Sure its ugly, and unfortunate what is going on in the entire energy sector, but holding and even adding to a position in ESV as we go through the trough will lead to nice gains on the other side of the cycle. Will add as new money comes available.

    The rest of my names aren't pretty, Moses

  • Greenbrier Is Our Favourite Rail Car Manufacturer [View article]
    Zealot, WAB is my biggest investing miss...I am a huge fan of the rail sector for all the reasons you mention...I researched WAB when I was just getting started and boy did I get that company right. Too bad not one dime of live money went into WAB in 2009...I would have crushed it. Lesson learned.

    Really appreciate the article and commentary. Long TRN and UNP...looked long and hard at GBX, but found valuation a bit rich; all things considered...hence, I bulked my TRN position and opened a new position in UNP under $100. Regards, Moses

  • Trinity Industries - An Undervalued Investment [View article]
    Kurt, thank you for the article. Nice work! I bought more TRN just now...$24 is a nice bid that I will ride to sweet profits. The overhang as mentioned, is the perception of litigation. I am willing to take that risk at this juncture. Also bought some more UNP to average down. Regards, Moses

  • BAML: Capitulation in emerging markets, commodities, and energy-related stocks [View news story]
    May open new positions in CAT and AAPL. NOV IBM UNP ESV BBL positions will get additional new money as it becomes uranium junior miners are slogging along, but those should perk up a bit shortly.

    Long, and getting longer all of the above. Hang on...regards, Moses

  • Assessing My Purchase Of Union Pacific [View article]
    DG, hang tough. I am a relatively recent 'Long UNP' and am creating a core position that I will only "sell around the edges" as I believe this is a forever stock worth holding. We are probably mid to late mid-cycle if you look at it from a transports sector vantage point...and even bigger picture, this bull is getting a bit long in the tooth. Recessions almost always lead to much better "entry points", but do you want to wait that long?

    My philosophy: Continuing to build a core position in a well managed, efficient, tier 1 rail with thousands of track miles connecting all of the western US, Mexico and Canada seems like a decent hedge against crazy high oil and petroleum pricing that will be back sooner than we can imagine.

    I will continue to build my UNP position as new money is able to be squirreled at $100 myself. In addition to UNP, my portfolio is littered with commodity names that would make most people blanch...I will buy up the forsaken names now, while everyone else is bemoaning the ridiculous pricing environment and lackluster future of everything that comes out of the ground...this too shall pass.

    Cheers, Moses

  • IBM buying medical imaging software firm Merge for $1B [View news story]
    blahblah...great handle.

    Get in now, if you are thinking about it. Besides a deepening recession/depression, you wont see IBM much lower than where we are presently.

  • Earnings Season Observations And Opportunities Part 1: Nucor [View article]
    PS. You already know this, but NUE's corporate environment isn't corporate at all...its a family, which is absolutely awesome. Plain and simple. I should stop waiting for the 4% mark and just buy some already! Cheers, Moses

    Ray, love your commentary as usual. You know I want in, but I am holding out for NUE to pierce (or nuzzle up against) the 4% div yield. Look forward to your thoughts on other names. Regards, Moses
