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 have outperformed its industry in a year's time. Ushering in further good news, the company performed well in the first quarter of 2019, wherein earnings and revenues surpassed the respective estimates. Both the metrics also improved year over year. Results were aided by favorable pricing and volume growth. Lower operating expenses too aided bottom-line growth. Furthermore, operating ratio (operating expenses as a percentage of revenues) improved in the quarter, courtesy of its cost-control measures. These apart, the company's efforts to reward its shareholders through dividend payments and buybacks are encouraging. This February, CSX announced a 9.1% dividend hike to 24 cents per share. However, below-par performance of the company's intermodal unit in the first quarter is worrisome. Additionally, CSX's high debt levels raise concern." (4/22/2019) 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.
