Chesapeake Energy's advantage
Chesapeake Energy already has a long history in the Utica Shale. It was the first company to turn a well into production in June of 2011. The competition didn't start putting wells online until nearly a year later when Hess (NYSE: HES ) brought its first well into production that April. Being first in the basin is proving to be a real competitive advantage for Chesapeake Energy as it has drilled more wells than all of its competitors combined as the following slide shows.

Genuine Parts (NYSE: GPC ) is hardly a household name, but you'll find it among the largest producers of auto parts in the industry, and its NAPA Auto Parts stores are widely known among vehicle owners and mechanics alike. Unlike Ford and GM, you'll also find Genuine Parts on the list of Dividend Aristocrats, where admission is determined by whether a company can manage to boost its dividend payouts to shareholders every single year for at least a quarter century. Only a few dozen stocks make the cut, demonstrating their staying power even through tough times. Let's take a closer look at Genuine Parts to see whether it can use recent success in the auto industry to sustain its long streak of rewarding dividend payouts to investors.

- [By John Udovich]
With those recent contract wins in mind, it should be noted that while Cray Inc has reported consistently rising revenues of $525.75M (2013), $421.06M (2012), $236.05M (2011) and $319.39M but more mixed net income of $32.22M (2013), $161.24M (2012), $14.33M (2011) and $15.06M (2010). Moreover and the last time Cray Inc reported earnings, shares fell 11.47% despite better-than-expected results that came with a more cautious 2014 guidance (see Is Big Data and Supercomputer Stock Cray Inc (CRAY) Still a Super Stock? SGI, IBM & HPQ for a lengthy look at what was specifically reported) while�back in February,�shares surged 39% after solid fourth-quarter results�along with�encouraging forward guidance were reported.

But CSX has recognized the potential of moving important commodities like crops and oil from the center of the country to the East Coast. The success that Union Pacific (NYSE: UNP ) has had in transporting oil across the country has inspired plenty of copycat moves from its railroad rivals as they all seek to make up for lost revenue elsewhere. For its part, CSX expects to spend $2.3 billion on infrastructure improvements like higher bridges, larger tunnels, and improving clearance to allow for double-decker-container transport to ports on the Atlantic coast. Kansas City Southern (NYSE: KSU ) is also trying to capitalize on this trend, with its own plans to spend half a billion dollars on capital expenditures this year.
