Read MoreHide Full Article

Kansas City Southern's shares comfortably outperformed the industry it belongs to. The stock has gained 9.3%, as against the industry’s decline of 2.5% in the last three months. The improving scenario with respect to coal is aiding Kansas City Southern significantly. We are also bullish on the company's efforts to reward shareholders dividend payments and buybacks. In line with this objective, the company recently hiked its quarterly dividend in excess of 9%. Moreover, its board cleared a new share repurchase program worth $800 million. Sluggish intermodal revenues and high fuel costs, however, remain concerns.
