Senate Renews Highway Funding: Top Infrastructure Stocks

The United States Senate just renewed funding for highway and airport improvement projects, which should preserve the jobs for numerous workers, and should also benefit the companies involved in providing infrastructure services and products for the Federal government.

Many of these companies are publicly traded companies, and can be found on the free list of infrastructure stocks that recently updated. These companies include the suppliers, the contractors, and the consultants.

The stock has a very reasonable price to earnings ratio of 9.3, a forward PE of 7.7, with a very reasonable price to earnings growth ratio, also known as a PEG ratio, of 0.80.
