17:02 EDTCPCanadian Pacific outlines plans for efficiency increases, business growth
Canadian Pacific CEO Hunter Harrison outlined various plans CP will execute to continue to improve service reliability, increase the railway's efficiency, and grow the business. Key highlights include: reduce roughly 4,500 employee and/or contractor positions by 2016 - through job reductions, natural attrition and fewer contractors. We have already made progress on this front and expect 1,700 positions to be eliminated by year end; new longer sidings program will improve asset utilization and increase train length and velocity - The plan will allow CP to move the same or increased volumes with fewer trains, and is expected to save over 14,500, or 4%, crew starts; explore options to maximize full value of existing and anticipated surplus real estate holdings; relocate CP's current corporate headquarters in downtown Calgary to new office space at CP-owned Ogden Yard by 2014; review options for the Delaware & Hudson in the U.S. Northeast, while maintaining options for continued growth in the energy business; announced earlier, CP is seeking expressions of interest on the 660-mile portion of the former Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern, west of Tracy, Minnesota.

08:20 EDTCPAckman says Herbalife short thesis reinforced by recent developments
"Recent developments at Herbalife reinforce our short thesis that HLF is an illegal pyramid that will collapse or otherwise be shut down by regulators," Bill Ackman stated in Pershing Square Holdings' quarterly letter to shareholders, which was released last night. "We continue to believe that the expiration of HLF’s $1.15B credit facility in 2016 is a potential catalyst for further stock price declines, as we are skeptical that the company will be able to access the credit markets in order to refinance or replace this facility," Ackman added. In the letter, Ackman also confirmed that the fund is currently doing due diligence on Actavis (ACT) to determine whether it should remain a long-term holder following the company's deal to acquire Allergan (AGN), noting that Pershing had recently met with the CEO of Actavis and were "impressed with him and his business plan for the combined company." Remarking on some of his other notable holdings, Ackman stated that Canadian Pacific’s (CP) transformation has been "nothing short of remarkable," that he believes the acquisition of Tim Hortons (THI) will create significant long-term value for Burger King (BKW) shareholders, and that early returns from Air Products' (APD) transformation are "promising."
