(A Top Pick Mar 27/19, Down 19%) They're part of a duopoly. It enjoys highly recurring revenues. SJ shouldn't be impacted by the virus, just in their lumber segment. Strong balance sheet. More acquisitions to come for them in the pole side. The stock hasn't been this cheap in a decade. Trades at 13x earnings and has room to grow its dividend. A slam dunk.

A pretty boring company and will grow over time. They make good acquisitions and have set themselves up properly. They are not expensive but debt is a little too high. It will not disappoint you over the next 10 years but never excite you, either.

He owned it. SJ is coming back into range and had a decent quarter. He likes their fundamental business, but the replacement cycles can vary a lot. He'll wait a quarter or two.

He likes it. They have seen a bit of a downdraft due to lumber prices. The business itself is pretty consistent. They are guiding to higher revenues next year. He thinks they have turned a bit of a quarter here. He does not have too many concerns.

He bought within the last 12 months. The CEO retired and the stock had an over-reaction to it. The stock lost some of its acquisition multiple but now it is a bargain. The margins are improving. There are acquisitions to be mode in the segment. He would definitely buy at these levels. 80% of the business is recurring. The utility pole side has a lot of growth because of renewable energy growth.

He always wanted to own it. They have huge market share and big recurring revenue. A solid business. But the CEO left and that's halted organic growth and has created negative optics. This will regain their footing. Watch the coming quarters.

He's not as high on this vs. the last time he talked about it. The CEO left, which is not a good sign. It's under review for him now. He may not own it later.

Or buy the railroads? It's been rangebound for years. They do all right things, but the founder and CEO left. Acquisitions helped their growth profile. A lot of its revenue comes from maintenance of railways, so it's solid. He's waiting for better direction from management. Overall, a fine company. Don't switch to the rails, because we're in a fragile economy so if something happens, the rails get hurt.

Treading water for 4 years. Margins were squeezed, oversupply. Duopoly in North America. Margins improving, organic growth is coming back. Nice steady replacement market business. Growing their lumber business through Home Depot. Just bought his position. Going to crank up dividends aggressively. Hold it for the long run. Yield is 1.3%. (Analysts’ price target is $51.29)

The founding families completely sold their shares, so SJ had a rough 2018. But this year could be a growth year. But this can be a cyclical business--replacing train tracks. They should grow revenues 3-5% a year and make further acquisitions. Expects dividend growth. Very undervalued.

Still likes and recommends it, but disappointed it hasn't done better lately and has been more volatile and less stable. He expects there'll be more railroad maintence, because of increased rail traffic, which means SJ will be in greater demand.

She used to own it and sold when they had some inventory issues with the treaded wood and the guidance was off. She is very keen on Management. She is not so worry on individual quarters. The parent sold a big chunk of the stock. Lower margins. No reason to own it until they show impressive numbers.
