What are analysts saying about CAI International stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CAI International stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CAI INTERNATIONAL, INC. is one of the world's leading intermodal freight container leasing and management companies. Intermodal freight containers are large, standardized steel boxes, which CAI leases primarily to international steamship companies, and are used to transport cargo by a number of means, including ship, truck and rail. A portion of the container fleet is owned by CAI with the balance being owned by third parties on whose behalf CAI manages the containers. Accordingly, CAI operates its business through two segments: container leasing and container fleet management. Through its international network of offices and agents CAI also has developed an active after-market program for containers retired from the international shipping fleet. " (10/19/2017)
  • 2. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We reiterate our Buy rating on CAI shares following a decent 4Q16. Although a loss on used container sales hurt the quarter's results, the pace of improvement in market conditions is accelerating, as new box prices are now up 60% from their 1Q16 lows and spot lease rates have in some cases doubled. Our $20 PT (up from $18) equals 90% of tangible book value, and reflects improving sentiment toward the sector and continuing progress toward midcycle valuations (which typically trade a premium to book value)."
