Donald Trump's mission to improve economy will improve traffic.
Railroads face strong dollar, weakness in coal.
Union Pacific (NYSE:UNP) will enjoy better comparable metrics in 2017 after suffering a 7% decline in volumes in 2016. With an uptick in manufacturing, railroads should see an increase in the shipment of metals, petroleum, iron, steel, scrap and lumber. President-Elect Donald Trump's mission to improve America's economy will likely have a positive impact on the rails.
