11:52 EDTKSUKansas City Southern jumps after report of crude terminal deal
Train operator Kansas City Southern (KSU) is climbing after Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry wrote in a note to investors earlier today that the company has said it's conducting "very serious negotiations" with an energy company about developing a crude oil terminal in Port Arthur, Texas. The facility would handle five trains per day and become a major destination point for heavy crude from Canada, the analyst wrote. As a result of this developing deal, the company's revenue from transporting crude oil will be significantly higher than expected, the analyst believes. She maintained an Outperform rating on the stock. Meanwhile, Wells Fargo analyst Anthony Gallo wrote that the Port Arthur location is favorable because of its proximity to chemical and crude oil processing markets. However, the company would likely obtain significantly less than $3,000 per train car of crude, which is the amount that other railroad companies have received, the analyst wrote. Nevertheless, the construction of a crude oil terminal in Port Arthur would be "very beneficial" to Kansas City Southern, wrote Gallo, who maintained an Outperform rating on the stock. In late morning trading, Kansas City Southern jumped $9, or 9%, to $107.

17:03 EDTKSURailroad 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.
