11:29 EDTNSCNorfolk Southern CEO says 'confident' in company's long-term strengths
Addressing his last annual meeting as Norfolk Southern's CEO, Wick Moorman told shareholders that "we see continuing strength in the overall economy as well as opportunities in many of the markets we serve," and, "We are confident in our company's long-term strengths and prospects for continued success." President Jim Squires becomes CEO June 1, and Moorman will remain as executive chairman of the board. Moorman reviewed company highlights of 2014, which included "earning record income, revenues, and earnings per share while establishing its best-ever operating ratio, a key indicator of operating performance." These accomplishments were especially significant, Moorman said, considering 2014's extreme winter weather and traffic surges that exceeded expectations, which created service challenges. He delivered an upbeat message to customers and stockholders. "We expect to reach the strong velocity and service levels we saw in 2012 and 2013 by the second half of this year," Moorman said. "As we restore our network's velocity and efficiency, we will be able to secure additional business at rates that will drive positive returns for our shareholders."

CSX CFO Fredrik Eliasson discussed the company's performance and second quarter volume and earnings projections at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2015 Transportation Conference in Boston. Eliasson highlighted CSX's financial performance over the past decade, during which the company delivered a compound annual growth rate in EPS of 20% despite the loss of nearly $900M in coal revenue over the last few years. Eliasson outlined the company's view of second quarter volume, which is tracking slightly below expected levels due to very strong comparisons to last year. However, thanks to improving service levels and asset utilization, the company still expects second quarter EPS growth that is flat to slightly up compared to last year.For the full year, CSX continues to expect EPS growth in the mid-to-high single digit range, as well as meaningful margin expansion as the company makes progress toward a mid-60s operating ratio. Earnings growth this year will be driven predominantly by accelerating pricing performance and productivity gains approaching $200M as the company cycles strong volume comparisons and additional headwinds coal.
