FBEC has a hemp infused energy shot and with energy shots being such a big industry now there is some pretty big upside here. Start your research.
wow you have done your homework. I sent you that message because you get discouraged the no one is listening or cares about your efforts. I for one care. Thanks for what you do. phypan
phypan.... No I have not forgotten my prediction that these 3 FTA's would be
passed... and your post that congress approved. For investors to understand
what these agreements provided for companies job growth and US economy
I chose to direct them to the most important FTA with Asian results "Sth Korea."
That shows results possible with other Countries from Asia....and TPP FTA.
Benefits for transports... I will give a simple example... US auto manufacturing
are setting records today on sales.... a large part of that growth for US jobs,
and large hiring at manufacturing and all the components to build an auto are
growing in large part due to the KORUS FTA.... where after the FTA autos
''built in the US'' have grown to exceed over $1 Billion per year to Korea,
and still has final 4% tax/tariff removed Jan 2016. This is accomplished with
weak global economies. This proves 2 points for rails..... built in east US and
are expensive time sensitive.. shipped by CSX/NSC to western rails, and
exported thru West ports..... this is verified by east and west rails auto growth.
To learn more about the driver for all the growth, investors should read up
on trade agreements. google ustr.gov and at bottom of page on left read
up on results...."fact sheets" they also include Panama and Columbia.....
Only 20 countries have a FTA with the US and they provide over 46% of
US exports... 200 Countries still to become involved, with massive population
Question..... Why do you think China is moving from manufacturing economy
to consumer driven economy... and also wants another canal built to have
access to east coast.......it must be that the US population just grew to over
3 billion people..... yesterday....lol
That's why you need to study about the driver of growth..... FTA
RetiredCSX I sent you a post on Oct. 12, 2011 stating the house and senate passed free trade with korea. You must have forgotten. Breaking news: I just watched C-span on public television. Today the house and senate passed (3) trade agreements as you predicted.
One with Columbia, one with panama, and one with s.korea.
please explain benefits to transportations in USA
Hey RetiredCSX, this note is dated oct. 2011 when I notified you that the house and senate passed free trade with korea. You must have forgotten.
There is no "wave of mergers". It's a BS phrase from talking head idiots who don't know a Class 12 from a subway.
There's 2 RR targets....as obvious as a stallion's junk.
Their ultimate options are to link with another RR, or to privatize for as much cash as possible to a coupon-clipper...insurance companies, pensions, billionaire Buffett-wannabes, etc.
Option #1 is by far the best long-term answer for current shareholders....IF they're lucky enough to find a new mgmt. team that has the skill and experience to make it work AND the fire in the belly to bother to try. The glaring choice is Hunter Harrison et al.
All other RR managements are far behind, especially on that second requirement. Just look at how they all run to the press with the "regulators won't allow it" BS. They don't believe it as much as they pray it's true. They are petrified of what Harrison could do to the American rail landscape. No exaggeration.
They simply don't want their life to get turned upside down. Being a rail CEO has been a great gig to now. No heavy lifting, 2 hr. lunches, a scratch golf game, 4 conference calls a year. Shareholder value looks enormous from that seat.
Now NS has the opp to get the gift that keeps on giving. They would be wise to make the deal. RR CEO's are confronted with the social aspect of "do I want this Memphis hurler to come in and make me look bad." CSX blew their chance to have their railroad rationalized. Right now,, it's a out of control. No doubt in my mind CSX needs HH more than NS. When an eastern merger happens, the east of the Mississippi railroads will have to do something. CSX will not be able to afford being the "smaller player." They will need to do something and, at that point, they will not be bargaining from a position of strength. The other Q is whether the big boys out west, and possibly, the CN, will counter on the CP offer. Likely the big boy are telling Squires not to pursue it. Squires not talking to HH #$%$ me off; it's just disrespectful. That's bean counter Moorman's guidance, and it shows he is a small man.
His job is to send out invitations to an auction, and hope that some of them show up. One year ago CSX had a gift in its hands, an invitation to become great. Now they're the last kid left at the orphanage.
FBEC looks like it is ready to break higher. The chart has been consolidating and recent press could propel the stock to new highs as investors take notice.
devine... any sector that brings attention for possible merge will move up in pps. Today the most
of CSX jump in price could probably be the move on CP and NSC has come near top.... and the
smart investors are moving into the #1 rail CP wanted... CSX... because of east coast growth
coming. CSX split 2/1 in 2006 and 3/1 in 2011 and increased dividend every year.... What has
CP done.... no split and no dividend increases....
Everyone gives HH to much credit for the worst run RR in Nth America that had much room for
improvement which he has done. But most of the revenue growth has nothing to do with HH,
it comes from 2 other issues. Oil shipments began when HH took over simply due to CP has
connection to Alberta and Bakken oil fields..... and they also improved revenue by selling off
assets... 2 sections of rail, and some real-estate..... the next year this is headwinds to earnings.
Today they make their move while public is fooled about these issues. Today I would absolutely
sell NSC and buy CSX.... You should also understand before congress can even say yes or
no to this merge.... HH will be retired. That said... I still wish you well in your decisions.
can't anyone see that CSX stock only moves on Hunter's moves. Look at a 5 year chart and see the up moves are only when a rumor comes about. Standing alone, CSX just can't do anywhere near what Harrison can do. The man is a dedicated railroader and is not only about the money. When he is for the money, that is a great thing for shareholders. He is also right about consolidation because transits and fluidity will improve greatly. CP is not in trouble, that's just agitprop.
Robert.... I have no clue what the market might provide on a day to day situation. What I have
provided is the long term view potential for CSX as all the issues I have discussed become a
reality. The stock could hit $30 today, but take out the merge possibility several will sell.
I could care less about short term action.. I'm in for long term potential... and you should be also
Congratulations.....Apparently you are the only person that now
has insight to what I told everyone since 2009. Do you now
understand the potential growth for the US with the TPP free
trade agreement, as other countries also become members ?
One eye opener on KORUS is autos grew from $300 million
per year prior to agreement, and 3 years later to over $1 Billion,
and the last 4% tax/tariff is removed Jan 2016, and will provide
more growth. With Japan and other Asian countries joining
the FTA (TPP) will allow companies in US to compete, and
more US jobs, which was impossible prior to agreement.
Do you agree ?
