Union Pacific Corp. (UNP) - Get Report CEO Lance Fritz told Reuters that following conversations with key members of President Trump's administration, including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, that he is confident that the president will do the right thing while renegotiating the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
"I've grown more convinced that they're reasonable on trade, I probably had more concerns about that three months ago," Fritz told Reuters.
Renegotiating NAFTA was a key plank in Trump's platform during his campaign, as he pointed to the $74 billion combined trade deficit the U.S. had with NAFTA members Canada and Mexico last year.
"We've had good conversations with the administration and I'm confident they're going to do the right thing when it comes to NAFTA," Fritz said.
What's Hot On TheStreet
The stock market may be overvalued: Now may be the time to pay extra attention to red-hot tech stocks such as Apple (AAPL) - Get Report and Facebook (FB) - Get Report . As TheStreet first reported Tuesday afternoon, asset valuations are somewhat "rich" by standard metrics, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said in London during a conversation about economic issues with British Academy President Lord Nicholas Stern. Yellen's comments on equity valuation and bank strength closely mirrored Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer's from an IMF event held earlier in the day.
The iPhone has changed how you make money: TheStreet's Scott Gamm is out with a piece that will really get you thinking. Apple's iPhone will turn 10 years old on Thursday. The device not only turned Apple into one of the world's most valuable companies, helping to boost its stock price more than 700%, it also changed the way we invest and trade stocks Gamm points out.
In fact, the original iPhone -- and the current versions -- have an internal stocks app, allowing users to check the broader market indexes and individual stock prices. Having this in your pocket was a big deal 10 years ago.
"I think it's actually made the life for a typical investor much easier," Angelo Zino, an analyst with CFRA Research, told TheStreet. "I think they've been able to tap news flows much quicker."
