TCI Fund Boosts Canadian Pacific Railway Stake

Sir Chris Hohn's TCI Fund management has filed an amended 13G with the SEC regarding its position in Canadian Pacific Railway (CP).  Per the filing, TCI Fund now owns 7.62% of the company with over 10.56 million shares as of August 23rd. 

This is up from the previous 10.15 million shares they owned at the end of June.  TCI has bought CP shares for seven consecutive quarters and their stake is now worth almost $2.5 billion.  They originally initiated the position in the first quarter of 2018.

It should also be noted that Hohn's firm also owns stakes in other railroads, such as Canadian National (CNI ~ $1.75 billion worth) and Union Pacific (UNP ~ $800 million worth), but their stake in CP is the most sizable.

Per Yahoo Finance, Canadian Pacific Railway "owns and operates a transcontinental freight railway in Canada and the United States. The company transports bulk commodities, including grain, coal, potash, fertilizers, and sulphur; and merchandise freight, such as energy, chemicals and plastics, metals, minerals and consumer, automotive, and forest products. It also transports intermodal traffic comprising retail goods in overseas containers. The company offers rail and intermodal transportation services through a network of approximately 12,500 miles serving business centers in Quebec and British Columbia, Canada; and the United States Northeast and Midwest regions. Canadian Pacific Railway Limited was founded in 1881 and is headquartered in Calgary, Canada."
