    You can whine all you want pal, but you're still paying that 15% Canadian tax on CP's qualified dividends. LOL!

    Over the past two years to date, according to Yahoo interactive stock charts, CSX stock is up 66.87% vs. CP stock being up 61.98%.

    On November 10, 2014 Lobster on this CSX stock message board responded to a question about what should be the sell price for CSX. Lobster responded, "Without more info on how you got here, you seem to be one wildly lucky SOB...cash in and move on. If you are completely clueless on where else to put your money, CP remains a solid bet. Since then, CP stock has fallen 14.46% while CSX has only fallen only 4.65%.

    The above are facts that Lobster can't deny…he can only ignore them.

    Hey pal…maybe you should mention government's role in the Conrail turn around, eh?

    "In 1976, it created Conrail by buying the bankrupt freight operations from Penn Central and the other railroads, paying $2.1 billion for them. "

    "The turnaround in Conrail's fortunes was due in large part to a massive infusion of government money: Nearly $4 billion was put up to modernize the rail lines and equipment."

    "To streamline its operation, Conrail slashed the old work force of 100,000 down to just 35,000. It cost the government additional hundreds of millions to pay off contract obligations to the laid-off workers. That money, along with administrative costs and other expenses, pushed the government investment up to the estimated $7.6-billion level."

    So Conrail actually cost the government an estimated $7.6 billion The government sold Conrail for just $1.65 billion!

    Little lobster arrives home after school crying..."Mommy…mommy…nobody at school likes me. When I talk, they give me the thumbs down sign."

    Mommy Lobster: " What did you say to cause them to do that?"

    Little Lobster: "I don't know Mommy…they don't take anything I say seriously, so I called them fools and putzes"

    Mommy Lobster: "Child…this sort of thing keeps happening over and over again! Haven't you learned anything from it?"

    Little Lobster: "I don't like what you are saying… you are a b*t*ch!"

    Mommy Lobster: "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. "

    "Prospects for Biggest Container Ships at Eastern Canadian Super Port:"

    "Maher Melford Terminal is developing a 315-acre container terminal and intermodal rail facility on Canada’s east coast. The privately-owned terminal will be located on a 14,000 acre industrial reserve on the Strait of Canso, Nova Scotia. "

    "Maersk Maritime is renowned for improving productivity in intercontinental freight transportation. While their e-class and triple-e ships are aimed at serving the Asia-Europe route via the Suez Canal, no North American port can presently berth and service Maersk’s triple-e ships. However, hints are emerging from Eastern Canada that Melford’s proposed terminal planned for 62º W in the Strait of Canso may be able to accommodate and service both the e-class and the bigger triple-e class ships. Should this happen, Melford-Canso super port may become the only North American east coast port to serve the triple-e class at full load."

    "Melford-Canso super port could evolve into a future super-ship gateway or hub for multiple North American east coast and inland ports. It may also serve as a port-of-call for super ships sailing between another east coast port and either European or Asian ports, that is, after another American Atlantic port is suitably modified to berth and service the triple-e ships. Until such time, Melford terminal may evolve into the sole container transfer point where cranes would provide vessel-to-vessel container transfers between triple-e ships and smaller vessels that connect to other older east coast American ports."

    The Panama Canal can't handle triple-e class ships, but the new canal being constructed across Nicaragua will be able to.

    Where is the real Smokelobster? It's still actively posting tripe on other stock message boards while not answering your questions. Will it claim to have not seen your post because it has you on ignore?

    Retired…I already checked for you, because I figured fly_like_an_eagle was quoting you out of context in order to try and make you look like a flip flopper. Whatever his motives are -- he needs to know it was a dismal attempt.

    Retired you have more guts than I do! You recently stated that in the past you've sold CSX shares and bought them back each time making money on the trades. Remember your, "Time to Bailout ?" post -- when you sold a large portion of your CSX holdings (around the beginning of October) only to buy them back within a day or so just in the nick of time to make money on the trade.

    Retired…thanks for posting your views here. You have a phenomenal track record on this message board in predicting where CSX is headed. Your no-nonsense analysis is greatly appreciated here. Regarding CP, I pretty much agree with you. Any CP earnings miss or lowering of expectations will not be well received. I think CP's share price is vulnerable more so than CSX. I also believe CSX will outperform CP over the next five years.

    Since October 9, 2014, CSX is up about 23.5% and CP is up about 5%. Did you change boats, or were you too emotionally invested in CP?

    "Your Money & Your Brain"

    " 1. The brain activity of a person that’s making money on their investments is indistinguishable from a person who is high on cocaine or morphine. 

    2. Getting exactly what you planned for is basically a non-event for your brain activity.  

    3. Losses and gains have profound physical effects on the body and brain.

    4. Financial losses are processed in the same area of the brain that responds to mortal danger. And it is literally true that we can relive our financial losses in our sleep.

    5. The bigger the potential gain, the greedier you feel. This is regardless of how poor the odds of earning that gain might be.

    6. The anticipation of a gain evokes a much larger response than actually receiving the gain.  

    7. Our brains automatically and unconsciously expect a 3rd repetition after we see two in a row of something.  

    8. The happier you are, the longer and healthier your life will probably be-and the more money you are likely to have. "
