Earnings: Loews Corp swings to a loss in Q4

Loews Corporation (L) swung to a loss of 53 cents per share in the fourth quarter, driven by catastrophe losses at CNA Financial Corporation. Revenue declined 7.6% to $3.29 billion during the quarter.

In 2018, CNA generated underwriting losses at its core property & casualty business, as compared to underwriting gains in 2017, resulting from higher net catastrophe losses. In Q4, loss from CNA was 75 million, compared to earnings of 193 million last year.

 

Loews stock had ended its last trading session down 0.77% on Friday. In the past one year, the stock has been trading almost flat.

The results were further hurt by a weak Diamond Offshore holding, where net loss increased by $6 million in 2018 due to market headwinds.

At Loews Hotels & Co, net income decreased to $7 million from $40 million during the same period last year, hurt by tax adjustment.
