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. Backed by operational efficiency, the company expects to achieve its operating ratio target of 60% this year itself instead of 2020 as expected earlier. Improvement in operating ratio is an added positive. However, we are concerned about the company's high debt levels. As of Dec 31, 2018, long-term debt totaled $14,739 million compared with $11,790 million at 2017-end. Service-related disruptions also do not bode well for the company. CSX's projection for 2019 revenue growth concern us. Anticipation of sluggish growth in CSX's intermodal unit also contributed to the gloomy outlook for 2019." (2/5/2019) 2.
