$68 to $190 in just under 5 years.

Not bad for a railroad, I must say.

CSX missed today and CEO said hadn't seen such a broad cargo drop without a recession.

So, yeah, maybe wait on KSU till earnings as suggested.

Thank you for that. As my follow-up here and maybe for Michael or Clarence if he's in the room, I understand you guys are railroaders, you're not economists here. But just looking at the volume declines you're seeing today, both the depth of them and the breadth, have you ever seen an environment like this in your business or careers outside of a recession?

Michael Ward - CSX Corp - Chairman and CEO

This is Michael. I'll answer that, although Clarence is here. If you take out the recession, no, we've not seen these kind of pressures in so many different markets, because you have multiple aspects working against you, the low gas prices, the low commodity prices, the strength of the dollar, all three of those together are really pushing. And in some ways, I think you can almost think of it as a freight recession, except for say markets like automotive and housing related, you're seeing pressure on most of the markets. So clearly outside of a recession, this is one where we're seeing lots of pressure in lots of different markets.

No view on the stock, but I liked Hunter Harrison's line from November on KSU.

“When the superintendent has got a guy riding shotgun with a shotgun, it doesn’t make me feel real comfortable. They say: the biggest problem we got is people stopping the trains and stealing all the goods. It’s like the Wild West. I don’t need that.”
