Guru Investment Theses on Genesee & Wyoming Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Genesee & Wyoming Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

Genesee & Wyoming, Inc. (NYSE:GWR), the leading short line railroad company, fell in the quarter as business slowed. Weak commodity prices hurt the company’s operations in Australia and soft coal and steel shipments are weighing on its domestic operations. The company made a significant acquisition of a rail company in the U.K., which we think fits well. The stock trades at a discount to historic valuation levels, and we believe its assets are very valuable and management is very skilled, so we expect the shares to perform better.

Baron Funds Comments on Genesee & Wyoming Inc. - Aug 18, 2015

Shares of leading short-line railroad Genesee & Wyoming, Inc. (NYSE:GWR) declined in the second quarter for three reasons: 1) exposure to Australia, where mining carload volumes have been impacted by weaker commodity prices; 2) soft U.S. coal and steel shipments; and 3) foreign currency headwinds. We maintain a positive long-term view on the company and believe valuation is attractive. Barriers to entry are substantial and we think that, as the only public short-line railroad, Genesee is well positioned to execute on its growth strategy. (Matt Weiss)
