Your Ticket For the Buffett Express As Investors Clamor For A Ride With The Conductor Of Omaha

Looking for the road to riches? – Try taking the railroad! Warren Buffett, one of the greatest investors of all time, disclosed today that he’s the largest shareholder in Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNI). Is there still money to be made in the sector, or has this train left the station?

Norfolk Southern (NSC) CFO Henry Wolf joins the guys on the Fast Line for this conversation.



Dylan Ratigan says NSC was cautious about its financial outlook, but the stock did not fall. Why?

Mr. Wolf says the outlook for his company and the entire rail industry is very positive because of increased highway congestion. Trains move goods more efficiently, he says.

Dylan asks if an increased demand for coal is driving his business.

Mr. Wolf says coal and corn – because of the increased demand for ethanol.

After the interview Dylan asks what’s the play?

Eric likes Canadian National Railways (CNI) which he says was beat up because of a strike that they’ve worked through, now.

Guy Adami says the play is Wabtec (WAB) because they manufacture and refurbish freight cars and they had double digit sales growth last year.

Jeff Macke’s recommends investors buy Berkshire Hathaway Bshares(BRK:B) and get long the underlying company.

Tim Strazzini says investors should copy Buffett and recommends owning forest paper products, chemical, steel and insurance companies. Tim likes Temple-Inland (TIN),Celanese (CE), American International Group (AIG) and AXA (AXA).
