CP Expects a Strong Second Half on Tentative Long-Term Labor Deal

Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) and Canadian National Railway (CNI) stocks have been hit in 2018 due to NAFTA renegotiations. This has been reflected in their year-to-date returns as of August 6, which are lower than the returns of US-originated railroad companies (IYT) such as Union Pacific (UNP) and CSX Corporation (CSX). Canadian Pacific Railway’s Precision Scheduled Railroading model has benefited it in recent years, as has been evidenced by its higher operating margin compared to those of its Class I railroad peers.
