Introduction As either seen with the stages one and two of the project the financial report, supports some overall numbers that are normal or can cause some concern. The Roe number is the first point of looking at when dealing with the current situation. In addition, each of the assigned railroad company’s revenue is viewed at from the past three years. Lastly, the paper will look at the future trends that might help or plague the overall productivity that the future of the railroad companies might face. Comparative analysis The research of different railroad companies provides information on the industries performance. One of the three companies that are going to be looked at for the industry standards; their high point is included from the Roe or the DuPont Analysis. Both Norfolk Southern and Kansas southern both are close together with their averages around 12 to 15% over the last three years of operating. Union Pacific has RoE of around 22% during the previous three years of performing (table is listed down at the end of the paragraph). The trend that has gotten from these numbers is that the above-average performance in the railroad sector is the industry's ability to succeed despite some setbacks that have caused the industry to cut back.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
