USMCA Railway 🛤

Canadian Pacific Railway and Kansas City Southern announced today the two railways will merge.

$CP will purchase $KSU stock and cash for approximately $29 billion. Common shareholders of $KSU will receive 0.489 of a $CP share and $90 in cash for each $KSU common share held.

The two railroads will combine to create the first rail network connecting the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.🎊 The combined networks will expand market reach for customers and employ ~ 20,000 people while generating total revenues of $8.7 billion.

Keith Creel, CEO of Canadian Pacific said:

This transaction will be transformative for North America, providing significant positive impacts for our respective employees, customers, communities, and shareholders. This will create the first U.S.-Mexico-Canada railroad, bringing together two railroads that have been keenly focused on providing quality service to their customers to unlock the full potential of their networks. CP and KCS have been the two best performing Class 1 railroads for the past three years on a revenue growth basis.

Tesla to the Moon? 🌙

On Friday, Cathie Wood’s Ark Investments released a $3k price target on Tesla by 2025. Ambitious, right?

With $TSLA trading at a current price of $654, Elon’s company would be worth ~ $3 trillion, based on the number of shares outstanding.

Ark predicts a 50% chance that Tesla will achieve fully autonomous driving within the next 5 years. A fully autonomous fleet of cars may allow Tesla to expand its planned robotaxi service. 

As stated by Ark’s new model, Tesla could reach $4,000 by 2025 in the best case, and $1,500 in the bear case. Ark projects Tesla’s unit sales to be between 5 million and 10 million vehicles in 2025, assuming increased capital efficiency.

The $3,000 target is much higher than any analyst who covers the company, the next highest target is $1,200…

Is Cathie’s price projection overly optimistic or will Tesla reach $3k? Place your bets…
