This summary was created by AI, based on 37 opinions in the last 12 months.

The experts have varying opinions on Canadian Pacific Rail (CP-T) stock. Some believe CP has a strong management team, potential for growth, and benefits from its recent acquisition of Kansas City Southern, while others prefer CN due to its historical dividend performance and management team. There are also concerns about the stock's potential lag in the short term and its valuation. Overall, it appears that CP has long-term potential despite differing opinions.

Fair Value

She likes the railways but doesn't own them since they are economically sensitive. If choosing between them she would pick CN since historically it has a better management team and a better dividend - 2% as opposed to CP's 0.7%. Also CP is still digesting its large Kansas City acquisition.

CNR vs. CP

He owns both. CP is the only one through Mexico-US-Canada.

Duopoly in Canada. Not building any more rails. Remains the cheapest mode of transportation for certain types of goods. Different, but both will do well.


The strongest rail company. Total revenues were up 53% YOY, operating income 10% and EPS 4%. They guided double-digit earnings growth in 2024. Synergies from the merger and a better economy will drive this company, said management.

CP vs. CNR

CNR had the advantage in early days, with all kinds of government money spent on it. If he had to choose today, he'd pick CP. Seems to have an expansive view with KSU takeover, more aggressive growth strategy, better growth possibilities.

Hold in a TFSA?

The rails face pressure from the current economy, but the economy will expand in the next 10 years. So, the rails will do well as they move goods. Yes, it's good to hold in a TFSA.


The rails trade in tandem. With CP buying Kansas City, CP now competes head-to-head with CNR which used to have more of a north-south network. He isn't jumping into these stocks, because of a possible recession later this year. If you're a long, long-term holder, holding rails isn't bad, but he wouldn't but them now.


Canadian railroads have 15% compound returns going back 30 years. CP has done way better than CNR. Wishes he owned CP, and you probably should own both. Will see buybacks, dividend increases, growth at GDP+. Always cutting costs. Will see double-digit returns for a very long time. Nothing can displace railroads. Drones just can't move the heavy stuff.

Bullish because we'll see more onshoring. Hard to tell if we're going into recession or accelerating. Should see restocking of inventory. 


Likes overall business. Technically, if line does not hold, stock could fall. If economic recession, stock price will fall. Would recommend half position, waiting for weakness. 


This and CN got hit by the wildfires, so they had lousy quarters. Otherwise, it depends on the harvest, commodities and housing (moving lumber). A good company, more efficient than CN. Own one or the other, which should do better in 2024.


Sounds as though the amalgamation is going well. The benefit is that the network now goes North-South, East-West. He owns CNR instead. 

(A Top Pick Jun 01/23, Down 2%)

Under pressure, but his view is longer term. Assets are irreplaceable. Overall, should grow with the economy and increase prices. Synergies from merger will last a long time. It will take longer, but eventually a NA powerhouse.


Owns shares in business. Excellent business with legacy assets. Mexico to Canadian railway valuable. Good at capital allocation. Strong investment for long term investors. 


It's in the public interest to get this pipeline going, as it will be great for Canadian energy producers as a whole. Won't have a negative impact on the rails. Rail is not the most efficient for shipping oil, it's the overflow option. 

He's positive on CNR and CP, more so on CP with its unique footprint integrating Canada-US-Mexico. Between onshoring and its management team, going to do quite well. Trades at a premium because of this.


Rails depend on overall economic activity. Rates will probably produce at least a temporary slowdown in economic growth. Price has come off. Next cycle could be 3-7 years from now. Starting to look attractive, good time to look at where you might pick it up. He hasn't jumped in yet. Kansas City acquisition makes it more competitive.


Great acquisition of Kansas City by CP was a game changer. CNR is the gold standard in North America. US is not in a recession yet, but if it does happen, all the rails will get cheaper. Don't settle for just a 1% differential from the historical average, when you might be able to get it 20% cheaper.
