Google "CSX curfew map" to get a map of the CSX
The railroad is a merger of
Chesapeake and Ohio / Baltimore and Ohio
Seaboard Coastline / Louisville & Nashville
and the New York Central portion of Conrail stuck on. -New York Ciiy & Boston
Portions of the former Clinchfield (western North Carolina/ eastern Tennessee & Kentucky) are out of service because of declining coal production and will probably be scrapped
I have a buy order in on the ETF ARGT, but at a few dollars less than the current price.
I am looking for income, with some growth.
If you guys that are willing to take a lot of risk to get a lot of reward, all the more power to you.
I am an ex_Xerox employee. I was in the IT department in Rochester, NY.
You do realize that the Big X is about the last manufacturer left in Rochester?
Nearly everybody else has left and I had a good job for years moving said manufacturers from New York state and Ohio to southern states to get away from the labor unions, high taxes, high cost of living and excessive environmental controls of the rust belt..
Next, I learned that any upper management that moved its headquarters to Connecticut was not doing it for the benefit of the company, but for the cushy lifestyle of upper management.
Carl is not going to get anywhere in bringing the big X around.
Dem. Senator Barbara Boxer wants it completed in 3 months.
One thing that Macri stated is that he expects to devalue their money, Kirchner as been living in a dream world that the Peso will restore its original value. Macri looks like he will eliminate the import and export tarriff s. I expect some wild gyrations in prices.
Are you up in Michigan? I was through Alabama, Georgia and the Florida panhandle last week - looked quite busy to me. Coal may be down, but fertilizar and ethanol unit trains were quite long. Container trains are running in2 sections, so I saw 3 container trains ina row, 2 domestic and 1 international. .
Exxon has a pipeline subsidiary and holds a 49% interest in the Plantation pipeline which is one f the most important pipelines in the southeast.
One thing that the company is investing in is new Tier 4 diesels. Last Friday, I spotted a new ET44AH marching through Georgia,
By cutting taxes there will be more disposable income, demand will rise causing an increase in goods and services. With a decrease in civil employees there will be an increase in man power available. But there will be some rough times. I understand that the Kichners have not allowed an increase in electric rates in 12 years - this should make for interesting activity, too. If the freeze on taking money out of the country goes away and currency is allowed float in relation to other currencies, this could reopen markets for Argentina's beef. Read what you can on comparisons between Chile and Argentina economies.
Retired- good presentation. The Bible Belt area of CSX should see significant increase in growth, IF, the tax system is greatly modified.. The Rust Belt of CSX could be restored to its old self if the tax structure is modified. Keep in mind that the TPP has a significant word in it: "Pacific", the west coast should end up getting a fair portion of the improvement before the east coast.
Yes, but, there is now no fuel surcharge for trucks, as well. And trucks can deliver faster than trains. I expect there will be a rebalancing between trucks and trains and it might not all be in our favor.
What is big problem right now is that with the value of the dollar so high in relation to other countries, if we make a product, (or grain or other food) no other country can afford to buy it. Mercedes Benz is now making about one third of their parts in Alabama., one third in China and one third in Germany and shipping the needed parts to the other plants to assemble the cars - good supply chain. Our country is living too high off the hog in comparison to other. Eliminate tarrifs, let everbodies economy improve. .
Hey! _ I was the data base administrator on the share holder data base for Gold Kist and I saw the complexities of what happened when there was a stock split. The software package by Jack Henry is a bear and that is the best shareholder software package on the market.
During the 1960's I was in a unit that watched if China or the U.S.S.R.were violating the Nuclear Test Ban treaty, of course the Chinese tried to see if we could detect an A-Bomb test.
The Chinese test site was in the area were the Uighur people lived, a nomadic tribe related to the Mongolians. They did nothing to protect their own people from the blast. Their government has changed little over the years. I still do not trust them.
BTW,I was replaced by a spy satellite
Somebody thinks the thought police must win. They must be affiliated with the homosexuals that tried to burn our church in San Francisco because the pastor preached that homosexuality is a sin.
The thought police are at it again. If a company does not walk the Liberal Line, it goes before the firing squad..
Again, the debt to equity ratio is the highest of the major railroads. It needs to call some bonds to reduce risk.
The fuel surcharge was trickling down to those of us that were commodity traders and a little to those who held stock in oil companies that were very, very profitable - like SOME frac wells.
S & P says $112 fou UNP and I think that is a conservative organization.
