TransForce (TFI-T) has an offer in to buy this and it is board approved. Transforce stock went up 10%. It’s $0.30 accretive to earnings, which at a 15X multiple is worth almost $5 to Transforce stock. Everybody loves this deal, which by default means it is a bad deal for Contrans. This stock, at $15 with a 15X multiple on next year’s earnings, is an $18 stock without a takeover. This is at the economic stage where earnings will start to ramp up. Yield of 3.97%.

(A Top Pick April 4/12. Down 10.46%.) Had picked this one because he really wanted to get a company that had leverage to a rising economy. Nice little dividend. Doing okay, but hasn’t kicked in, in terms of that high degree of earnings leverage that he thought it would have. Feels it’s time will come, it’s just a little early. Still a buy.

And economy cyclical. Involved in the trucking industry. Carries no debt. Management owns a ton of the stock. Have been great operators through the cycles. Thinks the recession risk is already priced into the stock. He senses that there will be an opportunity over the next 3 to 5 months, where it is currently at a very good entry point.

A trucking trust. Very economically sensitive. Prefers TransForce Income Fund (TIF.UN-T), ATS Andlauer Income Fund (ATS.UN-T) and Clarke Inc (CKI-T). A good hold here, but on any rally, would transfer to one of the above.
