We recently undertook to find to our own satisfaction the answers to the following questions:
1. Why should conservative investors hold railroad bonds for long term investment if the long term outlook of the railroads indicates that because of the automobile and aeroplane they have lost their former importance in the national life of this country?
2. How can there be a greater equity and a greater margin of safety behind railroad bonds as compared to other forms of corporate obligations without the same being reflected in the value of the common stock?
3. Why are railroad common stocks not more sought after as investments, when at least fifteen railroads have paid cash dividends uninterruptedly from twenty-three to seventy-five years?
4. Is there no speculative appeal to purchase a railroad stock in this depression when it has been demonstrated that this same stock if purchased in the depression of 1921 would have shown its holder as of today a return on the investment in dividends, proceeds from rights and enhancement, averaging 25% per annum?
The results of this research seemed to us so interesting that they are presented without prejudice and the reader is free to draw his own conclusion.
It would be an amusing experiment for the readers of this analysis to project the Dow, Jones & Co. railroad chart over the next year or two, according to the dictates of their own judgment.
To us it would be interesting to know whether our friends had drawn the line up or down.
