Pair of day: CP-UNP10/24/2013 The price ratio of stocks CP (Canadian Pacific Railway Limited) and UNP (Union Pacific Corp.) is currently at the local extremes above its average. The correlation of these two stocks is very high (long term yearly correlation 91%, short term monthly correlation 22.92%) and thus we might ass0.ume that the price ratio of both stocks might return to its average. To prosper from this potential setup, we will track the trade of short CP from its price 142.05 and long UNP from its price 154.2
Transportation by rail theme will continue to improve with US energy and housing themes. Dividends are a nice bonus
Union Pacific is a diversified railroad that is growing movement of petroleum/chemicals and intermodal sectors while losing revenue in coal. Company has long history of increasing dividends and stock appreciation. Biggest competitor is BNSF Railway.
Transportation is big!
163.19 Stephen left for Reno - first day was July 2
There should remain a strong need of the largest railroad in the us
railroads are always a safe bet and with BNSF owned by Buffett, this is the best managed rail stock on the market, the sky is the limit
Passes all kinds of growth + value screens; steady upward trend in price for years (i.e., no cyclical surprises); should benefit if Keystone pipeline is cancelled again
Expect a pullback to the 120 area. Too far too fast. Still love it long term.
The largest of the rail companies.
Superior cost advantage in transporting goods in the west.
Excerpt from unedited CAPSCall article anticipated for publication on 15-JAN-2013:The next selection for the Inflation-Protected Income Growth Portfolio is a two-for-one deal, half positions in railroads CSX (NYSE: CSX) and Union Pacific (NYSE: UNP). CSX has a strong presence that covers much of the eastern part of the United States, while Union Pacific covers the western part very well. Between the two of them, haulage is covered from the Atlantic to the Pacific with many, many points in between.Both railroads have decent valuations, balance sheets, and dividend histories, yet only moderate overlap in their route networks. Buying both effectively gets a system that operates coast to coast, while only buying half positions in each respects the diversification principle that protects the overall portfolio from an industry-wide failure.
Hell on wheels, Mr. Durand, hell on wheels!!! Among other factors, decline of coal is exaggerated. If President Romney doesn't restore burning it, President Obama will sell it to China - and lumber is coming back. Mr. Bohanan, Mr. Furgeson, Mr.Swede, Hell on wheels, gentemen...
Unrealistic growth expectations. High fixed costs, unhappy customers, downfall of coal, more regulations to come, ...
As we all know, the Panama Canal is expanding in a few years and the east coast rail lines have been expanding the rails and building bigger tunnels to fit all the projected freight. With that said, I've been looking at maps of the trade routes between Central America and the US, and it looks like most of the border lines are owned by UP. KCS has only one or two points of access to the US, BNSF has two (4 with trackage rights), and UP has 6. KCS has the advantage of singlehandedly going all the way to Mexico City and penetrating farther east than UP or BNSF. Still, I think UP is going to feel the effects of this increase in freight traffic more than anyone else. I wouldn't be surprised if there were significantly more handoffs between UP and CSX/NS too, and CSX is ramping up plans for double stacks on the 95 corridor for the first time. So, I'll keep an eye on them too.
America's leading railroad.
