A St. Lawrence University graduate is The Wall Street Journal's choice for the top railroad stock-picker for the second year in a row, in the paper's annual ranking of stock analysts.

E. Terrance Gardner Jr. '88, a vice president of Deutsche Bank Securities, made the top of the list by managing to have more rail-stock winners than most analysts in the sector, which saw a tough 1999 despite the booming bull market.

The story noted that Gardner is a former Marine Corps officer who saw combat action in Operation Desert Storm, and quoted him stating that railroad stocks "have been neglected for a long time," but are "due for a rebound."

Gardner's picks for this year include Canadian National, Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe.
