    Guys, check out (http://Achieverspot.tech). They have been crushing it lately while NSC barley does anything at all.

    The party is over for the railroads. They can't get out of their own way due to poor planning by management and possible impending re-regulation from a ticked off STB board and Congress.

    Technicals suggest this will go lower, and macro isn’t positive. Options traders, you know what to do

    Barron's: "The Labor Shortage for Railroads Is a Mess"

    Luckily, some railroads remain so inefficient and negligently managed that the negative impact of labor shortages and higher wages will go largely unnoticed.

    The silver lining of having Diamond Jim Squires in the throne !

    YTD:
    NSC -20%
    CP +6%.

    The Difference? PSR. And a CEO who didn't spend the last 3 years lying through his teeth.

    The railroads have had a misguided focus on operating margin for years. They have been hitting their numbers by deferring maintenance and eliminating employees. Thier stock price is completely out of line with the reality of the situation. They have been a house of cards before today's news but nobody talks about it. I worked at NSC for years, but all class 1 railroads are doing the same thing.

    So NSC's board goes from 13 mouths to feed up to 14.
    "Diamond Jim" will be staying on the board post-retirement.

    Because who would give up such a sweet gig at the newest country club in Hotlanta?! Am I right ?!?

    But seriously....improving corporate governance, more diverse views around the table, better for shareholders, yadda yadda yadda...

    We need a dividend raise! When you vote, submit that question to the board! Ask for a dividend raise to 3% yield. GLTA

    This is about what I expected considering the drop in volume in the East. The longer term trend is unchanged for CSX and NSC. Both are fundamentally changing the way they operate to become more efficient. Class I railroads tax situation is fundamentally changed for the better by change in tax law. CSX started PSR sooner and implemented it faster. At an OR of 58 they have pretty much done it. NSC is just getting started. With an OR of 63 they have got 5% to go. Goldman Sachs must see this and just raised the NSC target. If you want some rail stock, this pullback might be an opportunity.

    All the railroads are betting on one man crews. Say goodbye to the conductor on road trains!

    I was a Brakeman and conductor for Southern RR and then NSC for about 35 years. Whenever fuel prices and now a shortage of truckers happened. RRs all picked up more freight. Any of you traveled much lately, the interstates are booming with Trucks. I can see NSC going to $175 soon.

    Two pluses for rails.
    1. Higher nat. gas prices means burn more coal.
    2. Higher fuel price good for rails because they are much more fuel efficient than trucks.
