TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Canadian National Railway as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year, growth in earnings per share, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • CNI's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 3.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 8.0%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Compared to where it was 12 months ago, this stock has enjoyed a nice rise of 26.59% which was in line with the performance of the S&P 500 Index. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, CNI should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY CO has improved earnings per share by 9.9% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. During the past fiscal year, CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY CO increased its bottom line by earning $6.12 versus $5.41 in the prior year.
  • 49.11% is the gross profit margin for CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY CO which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 26.13% is above that of the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $1,066.00 million or 6.60% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY CO has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 4.90%.
