This probably has a better case for growth than Canadian Pacific (CP-T). Their 10% growth rate is pretty well in the bag with market share gain. They have slightly higher ORs than what the market expects, but that is probably in the stock. He likes this and it will probably go higher.

For long term? The rails are great stocks, they go through some difficult periods. It moved up in the later part of 2016 and 2017 and now it's consolidating again. You have to be patient. In the long term, it may possibly be moving back to its long term trend line. You may see that the rails move sideways for a little while. It’s a fine looking chart if you are in for the long term.

COMMENT

Bought this in 1997 because it was the lowest cost operator, it is both east-west and north south, and has ownership of rails in the Chicago area. Doesn't know how NAFTA renegotiations will affect things. However, they should do better than other rails because they have alternatives. If it got a little cheaper, he would be more interested. Dividend growth has been roughly 20% over that time frame.

COMMENT

Transports are good to go over most of the winter. This had a bit of consolidation in 2015-2016, and then broke out. The chart looks like it is consolidating. The bigger picture is pretty bullish. If you are a long-term buyer, you shouldn't worry about the consolidations. We are in one of those sideways patterns, but it may take a while. Personally, he would buy near the bottom of the trading range and wait it out. However, if you are long-term, you could probably own it and it would probably do fine over the next 10 years.

It is a very well run company and rails are a good proxy for the North American economy.  It is a good way to participate.  He is cautious on the Canadian economy, however, but the rails had good runs over the last few years.  He does not hold it right now.  It is a good one to hold and to participate in.

You may get a little pop in this, but the problem is that it has reached a little beyond its intrinsic value. It is having a very hard time going anywhere at this juncture. He would be more on the side of trading out, looking for a bottom of around $75, rather than owning it.

This is really predicated on economic growth. There are 2 facets to their model. One is price increases and the other is volume increases. They have been able to pass on price increases fairly consistently. On the volume side, it is economic growth. A very well-run rail with a low operating ratio.

His preferred choice in rails, and his biggest investment in that sector. They have a tendency to outperform their guidance, and thinks they will do it again this year. Very strong cash flow growth. Good operating ratio performance. Because of the free cash flow growth, the dividend keeps constantly being increased.

An outstanding rail. Very well-run with a deep management bench. An excellent franchise in terms of where they touch on the coast. However, it is all about what you pay for a business. This is not cheap. There are other rails that are better value such as CSX Corp (CSX-Q), where expectations are not as high. They’ve had certain service issues and Hunter Harrison will truly enact the plan he has laid out and issues will be resolved. Dividend yield of 1.7%.

The stock has moved up, but is now looking like it is breaking the upward trend line. It is most definitely consolidating. It could consolidate for a while and then move up again. That is not a bad thing, but you have to be a patient person during that period.

Covered Call. A stock he thinks would benefit if the Canadian economy continues to do well. The Canadian economy is in pretty good shape and this company is representative of that. There was a downturn recently in the stock price, and this is a good entry point. He would look at an “at the money” covered call on this. Dividend yield of 1.6%.

Their acquisition allows them to get around Chicago quickly.  They own a quarter of the container port in Prince Rupert BC, which is a day closer to Hong Kong than other coastal ports. Premier rail company in Canada and North America.  They don’t just transport grain, they transport all sorts of products.

Canadian National (CNR-T) and Canadian Pacific (CP-T). These have both lagged relative to the market. The market tends to allocate cash toward certain areas and groups at the expense of others. He thinks it is more of a function of what is going on. Overall, the valuation is not super compelling. If it is a long-term call you are looking for, he would just buy them and put them away.

This has pulled back. The grain crop in Western Canada has been light. Growth rates have been good for the last couple of years, so people have been working for them to slow down. On a long-term basis, it has been a wonderful company to own. They still have the ability to move forward and grow with the economy, and gradually take market share away from trucking, etc.

From a seasonal point of view, rails do not do well at this time of year. In fact, there is a pullback in the overall transportation sector. The chart shows this has broken its upward trend. He has a small Short position on the transportation sector. Rails during the month of August, since 1990, have produced an average loss of 2.6%, and have only been positive 42% of the time.

Rails are starting to look a little iffy. The chart looks like it has a slight toppy looking formation going on. It looks like it is testing the bigger upward trend line, which is running from 2016. The chart shows a small neckline break, but the bigger picture is, is the big trend line still being held? $100 is going to be significant for the stock. If it holds it over the next couple of months, then you are probably okay. If it breaks it by much, and stays below $100 for long, it could be a problem.

He is looking to buy this. It has come into his model, but he needs a little bit of discretion as to when to pull the trigger. It has seen some short-term support levels at around $106, which brought in a lot more selling down to around $103. If we get the procyclical bump in the market, he would stick around with this. Expects some weakness next week. Seasonality kicks in around September.
