What are Wall Street analysts saying about CSX stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CSX stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of CSX Corporation have outperformed its industry in a year's time. Ushering in further good news both the top- and bottom line expanded on a year-over-year basis in the fourth quarter of 2018. Results were aided by volume growth and favorable pricing. Improvement in operating ratio is an added positive. Backed by operational efficiency, the company expects to achieve its operating ratio target of 60% this year itself instead of 2020 as expected earlier. On the flip side, we are concerned about the company's high debt levels. CSX's projection for 2019 revenue growth concerns us. For the current year, the company expects revenues to improve in low single digits. Several weather-related disruptions also do not bode well for the company." (1/21/2019) 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, ". We maintain our Overweight rating on WNS and our PT of $56*. WNS reported strong 3QFY19 bottom line results and solid constant currency (cc) growth. FY19 EPS guidance was raised. 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) Has CSX been receiving favorable news coverage?
