CSX Corp (CSX) misses second quarter 2019 earnings and revenue estimates; stock slips

CSX’s Q2 revenue declined by 1% over the prior year as merchandise growth was offset by intermodal weakness. Favorable mix and pricing gains across most markets were more than offset by intermodal volume decreases and lower other revenue.

Merchandise volume and coal volume was up by 1% and 2%, respectively. However, intermodal volume decreased 10% primarily due to rationalization of low-density lanes.

CSX expects full-year 2019 revenue to decline 1-2%. This outlook reflects the company’s present activity levels, with upside if conditions improve in the second half. CSX added that it is taking a cautious forecasting approach given the economic uncertainty.

Expenses decreased 3% year-over-year to $1.76 billion, driven by efficiency savings and lower volume. Labor and Fringe expense decreased $21 million, while Materials, Supplies and Other expense dropped $14 million. Fuel expense declined $36 million primarily due to a 6% price decrease, record fuel efficiency and lower volume.
