(Bloomberg) -- Heavy Canadian crude’s discount to U.S. benchmark futures narrowed to the smallest since April as crude-by-rail shipments were forecast to increase.Western Canadian Select, an oil sands benchmark, strengthened to a $9.10 discount on Wednesday, data compiled by Bloomberg show. The gap has narrowed $4.15 this month, with $1.30 shed on Tuesday. Prices are closing in on West Texas Intermediate futures after Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. said crude-by-rail volumes were expected to rise 20% in the third quarter from about 160,000 barrels a day in the second quarter.With pipelines full, crude shipped by rail has become the only real alternative left for producers to send excess oil out of the province. The region’s largest producers have been under mandatory production limits since January after rising production drove WCS prices as low as $50-a-barrel below WTI.The heads of Canadian oil companies including Cenovus Energy Inc. and Suncor Energy Inc. are offering to boost crude-by-rail shipments in exchange for higher production limits.(Updates price in second paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Robert Tuttle in Calgary at email@example.com;Kevin Orland in Calgary at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Marino at email@example.com, Jessica Summers, Carlos CaminadaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

CSX Corp.'s not-so-strong second-quarter earnings results are carrying its peers downward on Wednesday, but analysts advise this reaction is creating an opportune moment to be buying. Shares of the overall sector have slid in Wednesday's pre-market, producing moderate declines in Union Pacific , Kansas City Southern , Canadian Pacific Railway and Norfolk Southern due to CSX's disappointing results on Tuesday evening. Only Canadian National Railway has managed to keep its stock flat as the fears of macro pressures persist.

Canadian Pacific Railway reported a better-than-expected adjusted quarterly profit on Tuesday, as the country's second-largest railroad operator controlled costs and earned more from moving crude, chemicals as well as plastics. The upbeat results come against the backdrop of Alberta government's cap on output in January that boosted low crude prices, but made oil shipments by rail less profitable for Canadian producers. Narrow differentials between U.S. and Canadian crude discouraged shippers from moving it through rail, a more expensive form of transport than pipeline, between Alberta and higher-priced U.S. markets.
The upbeat results come against the backdrop of Alberta government's cap on output in January that boosted low crude prices, but made oil shipments by rail less profitable for Canadian producers. Rail shipments have, however, recently recovered with some producers choosing rail again to avoid pipeline congestion. Crude-by-rail volumes jumped by about a quarter to 25,000 carloads in the second quarter, while total carloads, rail cars carrying freight, rose 6%.

While operational efficiencies get the credit for a freight railroad's improved operating ratio, other factors, such as changes in fuel prices and increases in freight rates, play significant roles according to a research paper by a law firm representing shippers in Canada. Canadian National (NYSE: CNI) and Canadian Pacific (NYSE: CP) "have become more efficient in recent years, but we urge caution when considering operating ratio improvements as evidence of efficiency gains," concluded the paper "Operating Ratio as a Measure of Railway Operating Efficiency" by law firm McMillan.

(Bloomberg) -- In a global financial environment dominated by negative interest rates and central banks signaling even more accommodative policies, the U.S. money-market industry is thriving.Normally seen as a place to park cash during times of uncertainty, taxable funds have seen roughly $136 billion of inflows this year even with U.S. equity markets surging and bonds posting positive returns, Investment Company Institute data show. Overall assets have swelled to more than $3 trillion, the highest level since the financial crisis.Demand is being aided in part by attractive U.S. short-term yields relative to bank deposits -- helped by three years of Federal Reserve interest-rate hikes, an inverted yield curve and volatility in financial markets. Total assets in government money funds are at a record high and investments in prime funds are the most since September 2016, before industry reforms went into effect.While the specter of Fed rate cuts is not perceived as an imminent threat, it will be a topic among attendees at the Crane’s Money Fund Symposium in Boston beginning Monday. Other issues likely to come up include the drop in yields and narrowing spread between government and prime money-market funds, as well as the post-reform growth of the market for repurchase agreements and popularity of sponsored repo.“Money fund yields are still above 2 percent, whether it’s government or prime,” said Pia McCusker, the Boston-based global head of cash management at State Street Global Advisors Trust Co. “That’s still attractive to investors today. If people are looking for a safe haven, cash is still a great place.”The yield on two-year Treasuries have dropped almost 74 basis points to 1.75% this year.The FedNow that the Fed has scrapped the use of “patient” when describing its approach to monetary policy changes, derivatives markets are pricing in more than 25 basis points of easing at the next Federal Open Market Committee meeting in July. Yet fund managers are nonplussed given that money rates are still more attractive than bank deposits. Historically, money funds tend to see outflows one to two years after the Fed cut rates, according to Alex Roever, head of U.S. rates strategy at JPMorgan Chase & Co.After a series of risk-off events in 2007-2008 that pushed investors into money funds, the Fed cut interest rates to zero, which crushed money-market yields and investors pulled cash in search of higher-yielding assets. “It wasn’t the fact that they had to cut rates,” Roever said. “It’s that the overall level of rates got so low in that scenario.”Another issue that could arise is whether the Fed decides to introduce a tool to keep money-market rates under more control. Rates for repurchase agreements -- a key component of short-term funding markets -- have recently shown a tendency to spike around month-end, which has helped to pull the fed funds rate higher. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said at his post-meeting press conference last month that the central bank will look at the idea of a so-called standing repo facility at a future meeting.Lower YieldsEven as money funds remain attractive investment vehicles, the drop in yields will be a topic of discussion. After peaking at around 30 to 35 basis points in December, the spread between prime funds -- which invest primarily in commercial paper, certificates or deposits and time deposits -- and government funds has collapsed to around 20 basis points, according to State Street’s McCusker.Part of that is related to commercial paper issuance and where financial institutions are choosing to issue. So far this year, there has been an average 21 issues of AA rated CP longer than 81 days on a typical day, Fed data show. That is down from an average of 28 issues during the same period in 2018. This dearth of supply “bleeds through to Libor settings being lower and overall yield being lower on prime funds,” Roever said.Repo GrowthGiven the growth in government money fund assets after the 2016 reforms were enacted, the repo market has expanded to keep up with the increased demand. Dealer repo with money-market funds has risen to $1.2 trillion as of the end of May, Office of Financial Research data show. That’s because of the growth in sponsored repo, which are transactions where dealers sponsor non-dealer counterparties onto Fixed Income Clearing Corporation’s (FICC) cleared repo platform. Last month, money fund cash invested in cleared repo jumped to a record $154 billion, according to OFR, up from about $5 billion in June 2017 when funds first started participating.Barclays Plc strategist Joseph Abate expects sponsored repo volumes to grow, though “it’s difficult to project how popular the program will become,” he wrote in a note published June 19. “How much single counterparty exposure to the FICC does a money fund wish to have? 25%, 50%, or more?”(Adds 2-year bond yield in sixth graf.
