On CAPS, 97% of the 250 members who have rated Textainer believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those bulls, All-Star fearandgreed2005, succinctly summed up the Textainer bull case for our community:

Growing company where growth will accelerate as the economy improves. 5.5% [dividend yield] that continues to increase. Trend is that more companies are leasing their containers from companies such as [Textainer] as opposed to owning their own. [Textainer] continues to own a greater percentage of their container fleet which increases the returns.
