Kinda interested in them too. Have not bought any yet - LeKitKat

Thanks for the info. It takes me a good long while to understand a company (that's why I don't add companies all that often to my portfolio). My stake in TGH represents a lone foray into the "industrials/transportation" sector - terra incognita for this pilgrim. I've been a Technology/Big Pharma investor, for the most part.

I was looking for another high-divvie play to substitute for the Big Pharmas I had kissed good-bye (for the short-term). TGH was simply too interesting to pass by. It's the "Big Dawg" in its niche. The financial metrics are enticing. I'm still in the "getting to know you" phase of my research, but I'm liking what I'm seeing.
