What are analysts saying about CSX Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CSX Corporation stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of CSX Corp. have outperformed the broader market in the last three months. Additionally, shares have been on an uptrend ever since rumors surfaced on Jan 19 that the company could be either a takeover target or its management could be reshuffled.  Currently, CSX's board is reviewing the offer by Paul Hilal's Mantle Ridge. The rumors came a day after the company posted in-line earnings in the fourth quarter. Revenues, however, beat expectations. In the fourth quarter, the top line improved 9% year over year owing to a 5% increase in overall volumes. The company saw growth in volumes across most key segments. Fourth-quarter operating income improved 27% year over year to $1 billion. The company's efforts to reward shareholders through dividends and share buybacks are also encouraging. However, high debt levels, decreasing cash flows and liquidity pressure may adversely affect the company’s financials going forward." (2/20/2017)

  • Citigroup Inc. analysts commented, "We think this could be a significantly less contentious situation than what transpired a year ago with Norfolk Southern, as CSX's management dynamic could fit with Hunter's addition quite well. Coupled with proven shareholder support, we view the probability of success as elevated. We reiterate our Buy rating on CSX and see meaningful upside in the near-term. There Could Be Big Upside for CSX - Running through Hunter's track record at CP we note that the company's OR improved by ~1000 bps in the first two years of his leadership." (1/19/2017)
