These are preferreds that are maturing each year for the next 5 years. As one matures today, another one is bought 5 years out. A lot of these are rate-resets and some of them have not been reset, which means that have been redeemed, which is probably a good thing. On the Federal Reserve talk in August about tapering created a spike up in the 10 year treasury. That caused a lot of interest-bearing securities to come off. Still likes this very much. 4.66% yield.

Just had a 2-for-1 split. 3rd quarter had great numbers and the operating ratio is now down below 60%. Feels that rails are priced for perfection. If the whole market comes off with the taper, he would definitely be a buyer of this one. Try to get at $52-$53.

The leading US service company. Can’t see it falling below the 200 day moving average and can easily see it getting back up into the $54 range. One thing he finds troubling is that they have property in West Africa. In 2015, the US will be the world’s largest oil producer. 1.2% dividend yield.
