08:07 EDTKMI, BRK.A, CNI, ENB, CP, TRPCanada, Keystone can learn from Buffett's BNSF railroad, WSJ reports
If you want to get a sense of what's going to happen with Canadian oil amid TransCanada's (TRP) Keystone XL pipeline battle, see Warren Buffett's (BRK.A) latest letter, reports the Wall Street Journal's "Heard on the Street." Buffett writes that his BNSF railroad company now transports 500,000 barrels of oil a day. Much is from the Bakken shale, where production growth has outpaced pipelines. The resulting local glut led the discount between Bakken oil and Brent crude to surge beyond $45 a barrel a year ago (narrowed now to $19). BNSF has driven its trains through that price gap, enabling Bakken producers to get their barrels to customers rather than slow production. Canadian oil producers face a tougher battle. Western Canadian Select is a relatively heavy grade of oil, so it should be cheaper than a lighter benchmark like Brent. But the discount, now $38 a barrel, owes much to transportation bottlenecks. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers forecasts production from Western Canada will hit 5.5M barrels a day by 2020, about double 2011's output. The bottom line: If Keystone doesn't get built, those ambitions will likely have to be scaled back. Reference Link

Dako, an Agilent Technologies (A) company and a worldwide provider of cancer diagnostics, announced the FDA approval of a new companion diagnostic assay that can reveal whether a patient with advanced non-small cell lung cancer, or NSCLC, is likely to respond to a new form of treatment. The approval of PD-L1 IHC 22C3 pharmDx strengthens Dako's portfolio of companion diagnostics and the company's leadership position in developing and commercializing companion diagnostic products. Dako developed PD-L1 IHC 22C3 pharmDx in partnership with Merck (MRK), maker of the anti-PD-1 therapy Keytruda. The FDA approved PD-L1 IHC 22C3 pharmDx for use in the United States. Dako hopes to gain regulatory approval for the new diagnostic in Canada, Europe and other jurisdictions next year.

12:26 EDTCNI, CPRails advance after Goldman says rate of volume declines improving
Shares of railroad operators are advancing after Goldman Sachs moved its Rails coverage view to Attractive from Neutral. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors, Goldman Sach's Tom Kim and team said while rail volumes continue to contract, the rate of change has begun to improve and the firm sees this as an early inflection indicator. The negatives in the rail sector appear to be well known as the sector has been under "significant" selling pressure since peaking in the fourth quarter of 2014, added Goldman Sachs. The firm sees structural improvement in the profitability of the rail sector as operating margins for 2015 are estimated to have expanded to 35% from 29% in 2010. Goldman thinks the negative earnings per share revisions cycle for rails is over and that investor expectations are achievable. The firm sees earnings as a catalyst for sector performance and believes carloads will grow again in 2016 with 4% year-over-year growth in intermodal. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Kim upgraded Canadian Pacific (CP) to Buy from Neutral and reiterated its Buy rating on Union Pacific (UNP). The firm sees upside potential for Canadian National Railway (CNI), CSX (CSX), Kansas City Southern (KSU), and Norfolk Southern Corporation (NSC), but it maintained its Neutral ratings on those names as the firm expects these stocks to trade in-line with its broader Transportation coverage universe. PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading, shares of Canadian Pacific are up nearly 3%, while Union Pacific is higher by almost 1%. CSX is advancing 2.2%, while Canadian National Railway, Kansas City Southern, and Norfolk Southern Corporation are each up over 1%.

06:20 EDTTRPTransCanada to end legal fight with Nebraska landowners, Globe and Mail says
TransCanada is altering its strategy to get the Keystone XL pipeline built through Nebraska by ending a legal skirmish with landowners opposed to the project and instead going to the state's Public Service Commission for approval, the Globe and Mail reports. The company has been trying to achieve U.S. approvals for the $8B pipeline for the past seven years and has said that the new strategy is about avoiding an arduous legal process in Nebraska, the report says. Opponents of the project believe that TransCanada's shift in strategy is a sign that the company needs to reduce legal costs, the report says. Reference Link

Kinder Morgan announced that its subsidiary, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, has executed agreements with producers, local distribution companies and a New York end-use market participant totaling 627,000 dekatherms per day for the Supply Path component of the proposed Northeast Energy Direct Project. The agreements will provide a direct supply link from abundant natural gas fields in Pennsylvania to existing and future Northeast and New England markets, and firm transport of incremental supplies for delivery at or near Wright, New York. From the Wright area, shippers can deliver into the Market Path component of the NED project for transport to Dracut, Massachusetts, or into TGP's existing pipeline system or into the Iroquois Gas Transmission system. The incremental gas supplies will help meet New York and New England's growing consumer and industrial gas needs, as well as helping to bolster electric reliability in the region. TGP is continuing to negotiate with additional potential shippers on the NED project, including LDCs and others, and expects to announce these commitments and others at a later date. NED's Supply Path component, from northeastern Pennsylvania to Wright, New York, is scalable up to 1.2 billion cubic feet per day, and its Market Path component is scalable up to 1.3 Bcf/d. The NED project, including the Supply Path and Market Path components, has a planned in-service date of November 2018, subject to regulatory approvals. Additionally, the NED Supply Path component and associated agreements are subject to approval by the Kinder Morgan board of directors.
