10:56 EDTCP, KSU, NSC, UNPRailroads sink after Kansas City Southern results miss expectations
Shares of railroad operators are falling after one of the companies in the sector, Kansas City Southern (KSU), reported weaker than expected results earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: Kansas City Southern's fourth quarter earnings per share came in at $1.03, well below the consensus estimate of $1.10. The company's revenue was slightly below expectations. Kansas City Southern identified weak coal volumes and challenging weather as the main causes of its miss. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Yesterday the NTSB recommended that the government impose stricter regulations on the transportation of crude oil by trains. The agency said it was concerned that accidents involving trains transporting crude oil could cause "major loss of life, property damage and environmental consequences." Also yesterday, another railroad operator, Union Pacific (UNP), reported stronger than expected fourth quarter results. The company noted that its overall freight volume had increased 7% last quarter, driven by core pricing gains. Union Pacific did, however, report that its coal revenue had dropped 1% in the fourth quarter, compared with the same period in 2012. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Kansas City Southern tumbled 14.7% to $100, Union Pacific lost 0.7% to $173, Norfolk Southern (NSC) dropped 2.5% to $91.30, and Canadian Pacific (CP) declined 2.4% to $144.50.

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."
