GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd

Bill Ackman Comments on Canadian Pacific - Jan 27, 2016

Many of the investment opportunities we have identified over time have been created by the fact that the market appears to value companies based principally on short-term factors rather than long-term changes in intrinsic value. For example, in light of China weakness, commodity price declines, and the events in the U.S. energy markets, current earnings and future expectations for railroad volumes have declined somewhat. We believe that this has reduced Canadian Pacific (NYSE:CP)’s intrinsic value by perhaps 10% or so while its stock price has declined ~35% from its August 2015 high. The value of a business is determined by the present value of the cash it generates over its lifetime, not based on what next year’s earnings are going to be. While the first year’s cash flows in a discounted cash flow valuation carry the most weight in the calculation, years two through 20 and thereafter contribute many multiples of year one’s value in determining the present value. This fact seems to be ignored by investors in today’s markets. The market’s short-term valuation approach coupled with the technical factors present in non-index supported companies can lead to short-term gross under-valuations and new long-term investment opportunities.

Bill Ackman Comments on Canadian Pacific - Jan 27, 2016

We made a similar error in not trimming our Canadian Pacific (NYSE:CP) position when it reached ~C$240 per share. While we still believed CP was trading at a discount to intrinsic value at that price and there was the potential for CP to complete an industry-transforming, value-creating merger, in light of the size of the position as a percentage of the portfolio, and concerns we had about the Chinese economy, it would have been prudent to sell a portion of our investment.

Bill Ackman Comments on Canadian Pacific - Dec 16, 2015

Canadian Pacific (NYSE:CP)

CP reported its third quarter results in late October. The rail environment is weak in light of developments in global commodity markets, yet results came in largely in- line with consensus. On the quarterly conference call, Hunter Harrison expressed confidence in the potential for further cost and capital expenditure reductions.

CP quarterly results showed revenue growth of 2% and the Company’s operating ratio (OR) improved 290 bps by declining to 59.9%. Net income increased 7% while EPS grew 16% as the company’s share repurchase program reduced shares outstanding. During the third quarter, CP bought back 5% of its shares as it continued to take advantage of the company’s low share price.

CP has increased its asset productivity substantially which, along with weakening commodity markets and lower volumes, has allowed the company to remove from service 15% of its rolling stock and 40% of its high power locomotives. Hunter commented that CP will not need to purchase locomotives until 2018, implying a seven-year purchase deferral since he arrived as CEO. This is better than management’s original estimates of three to four years, as the team has continued to improve locomotive productivity. These improvements are yet another illustration of the power of Hunter’s operating model and its impact on asset utilization.

Year-over- year, headcount is down through continued attrition of the workforce. CP recently reached an hourly rate agreement with its U.S. union, which should enhance efficiency. Hunter has predicted that a similar agreement could eventually be reached in Canada. Hunter remains optimistic despite current economic headwinds, explaining that CP is operating well, and that when growth picks up “we’re going to have to buy a bigger safe for the funds.”

CN announced a 53.8% OR in the third quarter, by far an industry record, highlighting the substantial opportunity ahead for CP. Hunter said he thinks CP’s OR should be 200 to 300 bps lower, even at existing volume levels. He also stated that capital expenditures would begin to come down in the coming years, as the Company has caught up to previous management’s underinvestment in the network. Given the increased efficiencies to come, the Company said it was confident in generating double-digit EPS growth next year despite the softer macroeconomic backdrop.

The CP-Norfolk Southern Merger

CP has proposed a merger with Norfolk Southern (NS), which would create significant value for both CP and NS shareholders. As importantly, CP’s proposed merger with NS would provide unsurpassed levels of safety and service to its customers and communities while also increasing competition and creating significant shareholder value. When one owns a company run by extremely able management, it almost always makes sense to get additional assets under their management if the new assets can be acquired at a fair price.

On December 8th, we participated on a conference call CP hosted to discuss the transaction, and outlined an investor’s perspective on the attractiveness of the CP offer to NS. We believe CP has put forth a highly attractive offer to NS shareholders. We estimate the offer to be worth $125 to $140 per NS share at the time of the closing of the transaction in May 2016, representing a 58% to 77% premium to NS’s undisturbed share price, a meaningfully higher value than NS could achieve as a standalone entity. For more details on the CP proposal, we encourage you to review management’s and our presentation. Please contact CP investor relations or go to www.cpr.ca for further information.

Bill Ackman Comments on Canadian Pacific - Sep 11, 2015

Canadian Pacific (NYSE:CP)



Canadian Pacific’s second quarter earnings were strong despite a revenue decline of 2% due to reduced volumes reflecting lower grain and oil shipments as a result of lower commodity prices.



Despite the challenging short-term economic backdrop and broad railroad industry weakness, we remain confident in CP’s long-term outlook under its exemplary management team. Management continues to identify opportunities for efficiency and fluidity improvements in the railroad, which will translate into greater long-term cash flows for the company. We continue to believe that CP is an attractive investment for Pershing Square.
