    Regarding (UNP) my current railroad holding. Yes, the “Ichimoku Cloud” trading system has all four bullish signals currently indicating “buy”. UNP had a “bullish” Kumo Breakout back on March 23, 2021, ✅. Even better yet, around March 19, 2021, UNP had a “bullish” T/K Crossover as well, ✅, 💪!
    *Does anyone working for UNP know if management is discussing a stock split, as ‘Clayton’ had brought up? Thank You in advance for any input, 👍.

    Clayton, Near future? I do not believe so? Therefore, I am watching with great anticipation how shareholders over at Canadian Pacific (CP) will vote on their forward 5-to-1 stick split. CP shareholders will receive their ballots in two weeks, approximately April 21. CP’s Board of Directors has already approved of the forward stock split and seek shareholder concurrence. Creel is pulling a masterful deal with Ottensmeyer over at KSU as well. Stay tuned.

    Perspective... all the talk and puffing of CP & KSU (which if the merger even goes through - realistically won't materialize for a couple of years) is a smoke screen at best for the realities of the financials. CP with a revenue of north of 7 Billion and an earnings of north of 2 Billion - and KSU with a revenue north of 2 Billion and earnings a whopping 614 Million. That's right - combined that's approx.10 Billion in revenue and 3 Billion in earnings. UNP? North of 19 Billion in earnings - and north of 5 Billion in earnings. What is UNP doing in 2021? Building a transfer station in Denver and aligning with Savage to open up a global intermodal shipping from the Pacific Northwest with an agriculture transfer station in Idaho (for those not familiar with Idaho - the ag business is a multi-billion dollar industry there with foreign exports). What has CP managed to do in 2021? Get it's senior unsecured rating downgraded on talks of a merger. By all means - invest heavily in CP - the dividends alone at 0.84% is a money maker. Canadian Derek (a.k.a. "I loathe Union Pacific because I'm a Canadian Dead CEO Deciple Missing My Leader E. Hunter Harrison") is quite the financial whiz...

    Anyone notice and follow FreightCar America, Inc, (RAIL)? This is Not A Typo, their Performance YTD is up, 🔺+127.80%. Their Performance (Year) is up, 🔺+443.56. ✅. How did we all miss this? This is a $82 million micro market cap company. We can all do better? Apex Railman? This is your sector, eh?

    @sno & @JMACK_4U - You are dead on the money - the STB will be the decider - and based on the past two decades of history - the bookies in Vegas are already taking bets this won't happen ;) As for the 30,000 ft. view of this whole deal - CP and KSU are a couple of tunas with a great white called UNP quietly swimming up behind... Stay tuned rail fans...

    I would like to see the two Western US rail roads (UNP & BNSF) each merge with on of the Eastern US rail roads (NSC &CSX) Then the US would have two cost to cost railroads that could better compete against trucking. I don't know if the govt. would allow such mergers but they should.

    I will purchase CP shares only if CP shareholders approve and agree with the Board of Directors at CP to have a stock split. I don’t know how long that process will take? Once it does, I will look for a good entry point. Both Tesla & Apple had price dips after their stock splits, I’m looking for a similar opportunity with CP.
    **Regarding UNP, yes, as of today’s close, 03/17/2021, all “four” signals of the Ichimoku Cloud trading system are in place for going long. I have entered into a swing-trade with UNP. I also use the PSAR indicator and MACD indicator to confirm taking a long position, both are signaling “bullish” as well. *Beware, always use a “stop loss.” Unforeseen market events can ruin all TA projections!! GLTA.

    Well, unless the market thinks that "hay by intermodal" is the next game-changer (!?!), I'd guess some folks think UNP will soon be headed to the altar.

    Compared to CP-KSU, UNP-CSX or UNP-NSC are both ...umm slightly?.... longer shots.
    But you never know.

    UNP going up when CP could take a big share of its traffic. Someone explain this to me please.

    Any reason to believe a split is in the near future? Looks like they do one every 10 years (give or take).

    Time for UNP mgt to wake up. KSU snatched away by a Canadian line. The final round of mergers has begun. Is UNP going to be a participant or just a spectator? Looks like the market is appropriately punishing UNP stock this morning. The KSU merger WILL hurt UP.

    The CP-KSU merger no doubt will provide formidable competition for UNP, but I remain bullish as I believe UNP still has plenty of upside from here. It's not cheap according to the valuation metrics but I still think the stock price will increase from here. UNP remains my favorite railroad name.
    Bullish

    Big News!!
    UNP will soon be shipping "containerized hay" out of a dedicated new intermodal facility in Pocatello, Idaho.

    No doubt Fritz's bonus check just got bigger.

    Canadian Derek, Most investors have more than one account. In a taxable account my stop loss with UNP shares did activate the other day. I occasionally invest by swing-trading UNP in that account. I wanted to clarify this to my UNP shareholders friends, I do have a core holding of UNP shares in a retirement account, a Roth Account, to be specific. This account has UNP shares as a hold-for-life investment, even though railroad stocks are a “moribund” investment to quote you!
