"Momentum is building," said Hunter Harrison, CEO of Canadian Pacific Railway, in CP's third-quarter fall earnings release. His upbeat outlook has had lots of company, with investors pushing up the stock about 50 per cent over the past year. There was some insider public-market selling at the railway in the first two weeks of December. While insider profit-taking into price strength is not unusual, it bears watching. So, it was encouraging to see Mr. Harrison make a sizable purchase of 59,200 shares in the public market on Dec. 27.
