2017-05-18 DON'T BUY David Cockfield

Has lightened up his positions in this. It got to a point where it was reasonably expensive. Thinks this has pretty well done all it can to improve its operations. With the new pipelines going in, the oil side looks like it is not going to be as accretive to the bottom line. It looks a little expensive for railroad. This is not the time to step in.

This has been one of the great investments in Canadian history. It is a great name to own. The railroad industry is a monopoly, because we are not going to build new railroads anywhere in North America. The number of investable rails has shrunk. You can pick any one. He finds them a little pricey in the current market. Their multiples are typically less than the markets, and are trading at kind of a market multiple today.

He would avoid rails in general. The idea of import taxes, trade wars, etc. it is not really conducive to goods crossing borders. This one particularly, does a lot of business taking foreign freight along the West Coast, and into the US.

Still thinks there is upside in the rails. The fact that they have improved their ROC for about 6 years in a row, from 5% up to 9%, and if it can edge a little higher, valuation is going to go up as well. Canadian Pacific (CP-T) might be a little stronger.

The trend is still firmly higher. It has been trading in a rising trend channel for the past 6 months, and there is no indication it is going to stop here. The major moving averages are all pointing higher. Transportation tends to do well from about the end of January all the way through to May, and that is attributed to the pickup in industrial production in the more cyclical areas of the economy. It looks ideal to pick up on any pullback or weakness down to its 20 or 50 day moving averages. He has the 20 day at about $92, which would be a more opportune time to pick it up.

Sell? Transports have done quite well in the last while and are up a fair bit. This is trading at about 18X earnings. The rail industry has consolidated quite heavily over the last 5-10 years, so you have seen them really thinking about ROI. Because they have a better efficiency and asset utilization, they’ve had better margins, and that is going to continue. With oil stabilizing and commodities doing a little better, you should see better returns over the next while.

Rails look very interesting, both technically and seasonally. Technically, it is in a nice upward trend, and broke to a new high last week. Historically, railways hit a very important low around the 1st week of October and move higher right through until about the 1st week in January. They then take a bit of a rest and have another run through until springtime.

Canadian National (CNR-T) or Canadian Pacific (CP-T)? When the market started to weaken last spring, one of the things that led the market to the downside was Transports. Over the last few weeks, transports have been picking up relative to the market, which is encouraging for the market. This is an interesting time to take a look at the transports. He has a simple view. CN is North-South; US-Mexico. CP is more about East-West and more about commodities and more about global trade. He prefers to make the trade on the North American block. CN right now is about 15% of forest products, and the housing market in the US has been growing now at about 10%. He would prefer this rail at this point.

The commodity downturn we saw happen 1.5 years ago, had a big impact on volumes, not just oil, but a number of things that were shipped by rail. This, and Canadian Pacific (CP-T) have become phenomenal businesses over the last 15 years in terms of returns. Rails are businesses he wants to own at the right price, and the right price on this was a couple of months ago, so he has not been adding to it since. This represents good value today. Prefers Canadian Pacific even though it is more expensive.

Trading at fair value, but doesn’t expect a lot of upside in the near term. He really likes that even though they have had declining revenues by about 11%, they are the leaders in their industry, the most cost-effective player and have been able to raise prices. In spite of the revenue decline, they are only down about 2.5% in terms of earnings. A cautionary note for the near term is that transport stocks tend to move with the market, and often tend to lead the market. If we see a 5%-10% pullback, this is good to follow. Trading at 18X forward earnings, a level that it has been trading at for the last 3-4 years. Doesn’t expect a lot of earnings growth in the near term. 16X forward earnings would be a great entry point. Dividend yield of 1.8%.
