Canadian National R.R.(CNR-T) 

February 16, 2018

Canadian National (CNR-T) vs Canadial Pacific (CP-T). He owns CNR-T and thinks CP is more commodity based (grains and agriculture and lumber). CNR-T moves more goods. Oil companies are careful to over committing to rail, because it is more expensive to ship than by pipe. Buy CP if you thing more commodity shipments will occur. Buy CN if you think more inter-modal goods will be shipped.

Neutral. Earnings are pretty good, but the commodities business is skaky. If NAFTA goes down, what happens to cross-border traffic? Too uncertain.

They are going to be shipping more goods in the future. Kind of a cyclical business. This should be a core holding in a portfolio if you own it. He would be all over it if it fell to $90.

WATCH

He watches all the rail stocks.  It has struggled.  They came out and said that business is good but weather is bad and they will have near term hiccups.  At $90 you would have taken the risk out.

TOP PICK

The industry had many years that were terrible but then companies were bought and it has been rationalized. Good opportunity. Good pricing power. Good capacity on the oil side as he sees more oil being moved by rail particularly in Canada. It is a play on global growth as rail is efficient. It has underperformed CP lately and thinks it is going to catch up (Analysts' price target is $ 106.75).

His long-term view on this is positive, having owned the stock since 1997. The economy is going to drive this company, so it depends on which way the economy goes. They were a little short on their earnings in the last quarter because they spent some money on locomotives. Somebody has to move the products regardless of what happens to NAFTA. This is the kind of stock you want to put in your portfolio.

Just came out with their Q4. Revenue was in line but their costs were higher than expected, and the stock sold off. CapX got a little higher than expected as well. This still trades at a 1 point premium to Canadian Pacific and the rest of its peers. However, this is the prize in the rail space, and he models an easy 10% EPS over the next 5 years. He would buy this on the current dip.

It is the north to south rail.  The rails benefit from lower US tax rates but NAFTA is a risk.  It is at the upper end of its range, as is CP-T.  CNR-T is discounting these things.  It would be a buy under $100.

Railways are strong moat type companies, having a strong competitive advantage because of having tracks. The competition is relatively small. He likes this company a lot. They are going to be exposed to the business cycle just like any other cyclical type of company. Feels this is better run than Canadian Pacific (CP-T). Their ROE and growth metrics are better.

(Market Call Minute.) A cyclical, but ironically enough. Very consistent performance record of beating the TSX in down markets, so it is sort of an all-weather stock.

One of the staples in his portfolio. He will add or trim when it gets to certain levels. The issue with rails is that there is a lot of uncertainty with NAFTA. If something negative were to happen on the NAFTA front, rails would certainly be impacted. These are really great, long term consistent businesses, operating in a sort of oligopoly. It's one you want to own over the long-term. He would be a buyer on weakness.

Is the ripping up of NAFTA a serious concern for them? Long-term, a good economy means a good stock for this company. He expects the economy to be quite good in 2018 for both the US and Canada. A 15% pullback could be a possibility on a break up of NAFTA, but doesn't see anything disrupting their long-term business plan until a recession hits. If this stock drops below $100, that will be an opportunity. This is one you need to own if you want to own the North American economy.

It has been playing second fiddle to CP-T for the last 5 years.  It has always been the more efficient of the railways throughout North America.  There is no reason it can’t go to $110.  It is a solid play, but not for fast money.
