Growth was impacted by a currency headwind but margins were strong. We look to the conference call to provide details on the impact of FX, recent client wins and margin outlook." (1/17/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of CSX Corporation have outperformed its industry in a year's time. The company is benefiting from implementation of the Precision Scheduled Railroading system. Evidently, operating ratio has been declining steadily over the past few quarters owing to the company's cost cutting measures. We expect the metric to improve further in the fourth quarter of 2018, results of which will be out on Jan 16. We are also positive on CSX's decision to raise its 2018 revenue growth guidance. The company now anticipates revenues to increase between 6% and 8% (previous guidance had predicted an increase in the mid-single digits). Additionally, the company’s efforts to reward its shareholders through dividends and buybacks are encouraging. CSX's high debt levels, however, raise concerns. Sluggish automotive volumes are also worrisome." (1/15/2019) Has CSX been receiving favorable news coverage?
