What will the US regulators and railways think about the proposed takeover of KSU? The bid is high, but fair. Would be lots of synergies in routes and overhead. Wouldn't be surprised if other US rails put in a bid. As a shareholder, you never like to see bidding wars. Will benefit from the move from road to rail. Pretty fully valued, especially for a company that's sensitive to GDP.

CP rail still moves a fair bit of thermal coal, which is decreasing. CNR gets more of its revenue from metallurgical coal, which is increasing. Both provide only a small portion of revenues. They also move chemicals, lumber, autos. If you're betting on worldwide economic recovery for many years, as he is, you have to own the railroads. He's a bit nervous about the acquisition of KCS, but if that goes through, could be terrific. Incredible performers over the long term, and no reason this will stop. He owns CNR, but would have no problem holding CP. Keep holding.

CP buying Kansas City Southern today He owns CN as a core position. He could own both since it's a duopoly and both are good. CN already has a good presence in the U.S. so CP is adding to theirs. It's a good deal for CP and accretive, giving CP access to Mexico.

CP vs CN The CP stock split isn't an issue. He prefers CP in the short term. Late CEO Hunter Harrison turned CN around and his legacy remains as CN continues to reduce costs and do very well. Harrison didn't helm CP until later, around 2012, so CP is a bit behind. CP has good exposure shipping crude, and this business should pick up in summer as more people drive and burn gas during the reopening. He prefers CP which will deliver 10-15% returns vs. CN's 5-10% in the coming year.

Strong commodity prices are good for them as is the re-opening trend. It should be a positive tail wind for them and they should do well.

It is quite expensive though it is good. Earnings dissapointed a little on guidance. EPS should grow at 11%. The name is trading at 23x 2021 earnings. CP may be a better buy in terms of valuation.

Long owned this. Their Q4 results were in line, though guidance is slightly lower than expected. Free cash flow is good, though the dividend rose only 7% when the street expected 10%. The rails enjoy high barriers to entry, which is a plus. CNR boasts sustainable growth, which drives margins and free cash flow. In turn, they can buyback shares and keep raising their dividend. Has a diversified revenue stream.

Do a stop loss? CP has a better operating ratio, so he owns that instead. CP also has more exposure to commodities. Both have enjoyed good numbers last quarter and both trade at a decent PE. But headwinds: a possible slowdown in the global economy, and CN has more issues in the intermodal freight they haul. He's neutral about CNR. (He doesn't like stop losses.) He likes, doesn't love, this sector.

He owns CNR instead of CP. Some of the best businesses ever. Can increase prices, diversify. Hard to compete against them. E-commerce explosion has created backlogs. Good stocks to own going forward. Quality company, good management. Sees many years of good returns.

It is an incredibly well run company. It is hard to duplicate the business so they have pretty good pricing power, at least over the last little while. It is more environmentally friendly than trucking. It is a good buying opportunity for the future, He thinks they will continue to grow.
