Q: SJ stock continues to go sideways despite what appears to be positive news. CN has been announcing a series of planned capital improvements over the past month or two. Yesterday, they outlined plans for Ontario, including the installation of 380,000 new railway ties. New housing starts are up and I believe SJ has operations in both the US and Canada so tariff fears shouldn't be that strong.

I am wondering why this and other such announcements would not be reflected in the share price of SJ as it is a major supplier of ties (I am assuming that 380k is a lot of ties, maybe it isn't). When CN released the last results they mentioned increased spending and the new CEO seems to have ramped things up as well, so it this old news and already reflected in SJs price?

Appreciate your insight.
