5) Canadian National Railway
The railroads of Canadian National Railway (CNI) run through the resource rich western provinces of Canada. Oil sands, coal, logs, and croplands are all abundant in Canada’s vast western region. This year will see near record harvests from Canada’s plains provinces, and those crops will be shipped on CN’s rails. Management has been planning for this increased level of harvest all year with partners and subsidiaries gearing up to efficiently process the massive crop. Shares of CN are poised to break out over a range they’ve been bound in through 2013. Buy.
