October 19, 2016


Trades from $3

Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (CP - Analyst Report) serves the principal business centers of Canada from Montreal to Vancouver, as well as the U.S. Northeast and Midwest regions. The company has extended its network reach by establishing alliances and agreements with other Class I railways in North America, which allows it to provide services and access markets across North America beyond its own rail network. Freight transport forms the main source of revenue for the company.

Canadian Pacific Railway is set to gain from strong the Industrial and Automotive segments. However, soft coal demand coupled with declining oil prices may impact profitability in the upcoming quarters.

Currently, Canadian Pacific Railway has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). We have highlighted some of the key stats from this just-revealed announcement below:

Earnings: Canadian Pacific Railway’s third quarter earnings (on an adjusted basis) of C$2.73 per share (approximately $2.09 per share) missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by $0.03.
