10:56 EDTNSC, UNP, CP, KSURailroads sink after Kansas City Southern results miss expectations
Shares of railroad operators are falling after one of the companies in the sector, Kansas City Southern (KSU), reported weaker than expected results earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: Kansas City Southern's fourth quarter earnings per share came in at $1.03, well below the consensus estimate of $1.10. The company's revenue was slightly below expectations. Kansas City Southern identified weak coal volumes and challenging weather as the main causes of its miss. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Yesterday the NTSB recommended that the government impose stricter regulations on the transportation of crude oil by trains. The agency said it was concerned that accidents involving trains transporting crude oil could cause "major loss of life, property damage and environmental consequences." Also yesterday, another railroad operator, Union Pacific (UNP), reported stronger than expected fourth quarter results. The company noted that its overall freight volume had increased 7% last quarter, driven by core pricing gains. Union Pacific did, however, report that its coal revenue had dropped 1% in the fourth quarter, compared with the same period in 2012. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Kansas City Southern tumbled 14.7% to $100, Union Pacific lost 0.7% to $173, Norfolk Southern (NSC) dropped 2.5% to $91.30, and Canadian Pacific (CP) declined 2.4% to $144.50.

08:01 EDTKSUKansas City Southern reports Q2 adjusted EPS $1.03, consensus $1.02
Reports Q2 revenue $585.8M, consensus $602.78M. Second quarter revenue declined in all commodity groups except Chemicals & Petroleum, which grew 1%. Energy revenue declined 46% driven by lower volumes in utility coal due to lower natural gas prices and in frac sand volumes as a result of the significant decline in U.S. drilling operations. Overall, carload volumes were 6% lower than in second quarter 2014. Excluding the estimated impacts of lower U.S. fuel prices and peso depreciation, revenue declined 2% compared to the second quarter of 2014.
