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.

They just bought KSU, which will make CP more competitive with CNR. Overall, a good deal. However, he's worried about the valuations of CP and KSU, pushed up by bond yields moving up currently. He's cautious. He owns no rails, but prefers CN long term. He think investors are paying too much for CP. Watch for a better opportunity in the next 1-2 years. CP could see a shakeout in its valuation given sky-high expectations with this deal.

CP bought Kansas City Southern in a US$25-billion blockbuster deal today He owns CN as a core position instead. 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 will get stronger with this US presence. You can own both rails, too.

Hold and buy more on pullbacks. The rails have kind of recovered. They've shown how resilient their networks are and how essential they are to the economy. The repoening will see stronger demand for indsutrial goods and this will benefit the rail stocks.

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.

Rails don't actually benefit over the long term, but CP-T has been performing quite well recently. We are in their seasonal strength period.

The rails as a whole have been a great category. They almost have monopolistic attributes. This has got a lot of investors excited and is a core holding in so many portfolios. He does not pay too much attention to it but, keep on holding it as it will move higher over the longer term.

Very strong. Growth pipeline is best in class. Management has consistently improved profitability. Not as coal-exposed as rails in the US.

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. He's neutral about CNR. (He doesn't like stop losses.) He likes, doesn't love, this sector.

He owns CNR instead. 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.
