+ Watch UNP
on My Watchlist
Union Pacific is a leading rail freight carrier, its UP Railroad covering more than 32,000 miles in 23 states.
solid growth at a reasonable price, plus a great underlying business.
mgk, s&p 4 star, 108.44
UNP has high dividend growth at an acceptable yield.
UNP has met or exceeded analysts consensus earnings estimates for the last 6 reporting quarters. Both consensus earnings estimates and price targets are rising. Short term, the stock is oversold. Warren Buffett recently stated UNP is the best run railroad. It is also the largest (market cap). A safe and steady ride with this one.

A Consistent track record.
Union Pacific has found itself greatly benefiting from an explosion in energy production in North America. Now responsible for moving nearly a-third of frac sand, Union Pacific has become indispensable to the oil industry. Just as needy, farmers are experiencing additional consternation due to concerns over finding enough capacity in the rail systems to move their goods to market. At least to me, it seems that, in the absence of government meddling, Union Pacific should have some pretty significant pricing power. After all, building a railroad takes significant capital and time: something that not just any newcomer can come do overnight. As long as Union Pacific can address concerns related to weather and clogged rail systems, investors could see great returns from this investment. Long Term.
Next few months RED
This is a long-term buy and hold stock for anyone that wants a solid investment which will allow them to sleep comfortably while paying a small quarterly dividend as a bonus.
20% profit and steady dividend growth are two very good reason that UNP will outperform the S&P 500.
Rail is one of the cheapest ways of shipping stuff, if not the #1 cheapest way of shipping stuff. Very solid company.
A solid company outperforming others in the rail industry.
a solid railroad
They have everything in place to continue growing.
increasing shipments of coal to China and growing demand for automobiles. Strongest financials of the railroads.
Come on, it's Union Pacific, do I have to explain it?
R&Rs are hard to duplicate = moat
Simply put the best railroad in the country.

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.
