17:03 EDTCPRailroad operators under pressure after Norfolk Southern guidance
Shares of railroad operators are active after Norfolk Southern (NSC) provided first quarter guidance that came in below analysts' consensus estimates. The company provided Q1 EPS guidance of $1.00, below analysts' estimates of $1.27, on revenue of $2.6B, also below analysts' estimates of $2.69B. Norfolk Southern said revenue decreases reflect reductions in fuel surcharge revenue in each of NS' three commodity groups, continued reductions in coal volumes, and a lower average revenue per unit related to the mix of business. Lower overall expenses were aided by declining fuel expense but hurt by weather and service recovery costs. PEERS: Publicly traded companies in the railroad space include CSX (CSX), Canadian National (CNI), Canadian Pacific (CP), Genesee & Wyoming (GWR), Kansas City Southern (KSU), and Union Pacific (UNP). PRICE ACTION: Norfolk Southern is down 3.9%, CSX is down 2.2%, Canadian National is lower by 0.6% and Union Pacific is lower by 1.8% in after-hours trading.

07:15 EDTAXPAmerican Express shares could hit $105 in 18 months, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Robert Napoli says shares of American Express (AXP) are trading at nearly a 20% valuation discount to the S&P 500, reflecting "very high" pessimism in the name. Napoli tells investors today that other periods of "extreme pessimism" for American Express included 1998, 2001, and 2008/2009, with each proving to be a buying opportunity. He believes the current period will be no different. Napoli expects Amex shares to trend to historical valuation levels as investors look past the loss of Costco (COST) and better appreciate the company's growth opportunities. The analyst believes a stock price of around $105 is “reasonable” in about 18 months. The credit card issuer closed Friday up 43c to $79.59.
