Kansas City Southern (KSU)

Company Profile: Kansas City Southern is a relatively small railroad in terms of size -- it derives half its $1.5 billion revenue on 3,200 miles of track in the central and southern U.S.

Investor Takeaway: Morningstar says its most beneficial sales "are produced by operating long-term concessions on 2,700 miles of rail in Mexico and 47 miles of track adjacent to the Panama Canal."

Morningstar adds that the company "is developing a significant intermodal franchise including access to Mexican ports, and its 50% ownership of the Panama Canal railway, are well-placed to carry containers bound for Mexico and the U.S. Its shares are up 9.4% this year.

S&P found eight "buys," five "buy/holds," and eight "holds," among the analysts who follow the stock.
