2016-02-01 TOP PICK Hank Cunningham

2.8% bond maturing Sept 22/25 at $102. He is all for quality these days and this is a solid single A credit that has zero problems on the credit side. There are very few of these kinds of bonds in Canada.

2016-01-27 BUY Don Lato

It is starting to get a little more attractive down here.  This one has held up a little better than CP-T because of less exposure to commodities.  We are closer to the end of the down cycle in commodities and you have to buy the rails in advance.  You might be early getting in now, but 2 to 3 years from now you will be happy.

2016-01-19 DON'T BUY David Burrows

Falling demand in Asia has led to weak commodity prices and weak demand for commodities. Because of this, rails in general have been difficult. Transport as a whole is behaving very poorly. He wouldn’t try to pick a bottom, but would rather wait to see something turn for the better. A great company and is really well run.

2016-01-18 WAIT John Wilson

The rails have had a difficult last 12 months.  There was a decline in shipments from the agricultural sector.  Crude by rail is declining and the fracking sand shipments are declining also.  Coal is a big component, too.  Intermodal traffic is also weak.  He thinks it is early to be in the rails.

2016-01-13 COMMENT Zachary Curry

Oil prices will have an effect on all of the rails, based on their shipping oil. Production is going to slow down and we haven’t seen the bottom of that yet. The ability to increase prices has been a big driver of their earnings and revenues over recent years. With the economy slowing down, this is going to occur less and less. This will be a tough stock to keep owning.

2016-01-04 BUY Bruce Campbell (1)

Has been hit like all the rails recently.  There will be less energy moved and the economy will be soft this year.  They can extract some earnings growth through lower costs.  He likes it here.

2015-12-30 TOP PICK Lyle Stein

A great name to own in this kind of environment when returns look dicey. North American rails have become a little more popular as a result of what Canadian Pacific (CP-T) is doing with Norfolk Southern. This is the best operating company in North America. Their operating ratio is low. Great allocators of capital. Dividend yield of 1.6%.

2015-12-22 HOLD Elliot Fishman

Good name. Technically the charts don’t show that you are going to get a whole lot of chances to get it a lot cheaper. Volumes have been steady. It seems to get stuck at around $90. Thinks it is going to stay in the kind of channel it has been in for a while.

2015-12-15 COMMENT Brooke Thackray

From a seasonal perspective, transportation really comes into play in March and April. This is a good company and there is a lot going on in the rail sector right now. The rails got ahead of themselves back in 2014 on their average overall P/E ratio. The chart shows it is forming a little descending triangle. If it breaks below that, that would be negative. If there is an uptick, it would be good to step into this one, perhaps before it seasonal period.

He likes this company, mainly because he likes the growth in North America. The growth will benefit the rails in general, but specifically this one.

2015-12-10 DON'T BUY Bruce Tatters

One of the better operators in North America.  It is not super cheap.  They have less commodity exposure than CP-T.  They are not cheap enough right now to buy.  He would prefer CP-T in that case.  He does not see growth in earnings this year.

2015-12-10 COMMENT Richard Croft

If you don’t think oil is going to be surging higher, this is a really great place to be. If you are looking at this based on what is going on in the market right now, which will probably last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, he would consider buying a Call Option. It gives you leverage and exposure to a very good railway company, and there is a lot of interest in this space right now. He would do a $74 Strike 6 months out.

2015-12-09 PAST TOP PICK Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

(A Top Pick Dec 16/14. Down 2.07%.) Sold his holdings in September. A name that somewhere into the end of the year will very likely come back into his portfolio because of its growth profile and the yield.

2015-12-08 COMMENT Jeff Young

Key metrics to focus on comparing it to other railways? Network speed and operating ratios is something you look at in the rails. He sold his holdings and switched into Canadian Pacific (CP-T) where he sees more improvement in operating ratios. (See Top Picks.)

2015-12-03 SELL Stan Wong

Volumes on shipments on rails have come down. Those are headwinds towards the space for some time to come, until commodity prices start creeping back up again. 200 day moving average has been flat since late spring. If you own, consider trading when there is an opportunity when it comes off.
