Heading into the fourth quarter of 2019, Foote thought coal would see declines of more than 10%, but those declines have accelerated recently. Through the week ended Nov. 30, CSX's coal carloads are 17.2% lower quarter-to-date but still well off the heavier declines earlier in the year (-38.3% year-to-date). Lower energy and natural gas prices are impacting utility coal while metallurgical coal is being negatively impacted by declines in the global economy, resulting in lower steel production.

Union Pacific cuts volumes outlook and warns on revenue, but stock bounces after 5-day losing streak
Wed, 04 Dec 2019 14:59:00 +0000
Union Pacific Corp. lowered its outlook for fourth-quarter volumes, and warned on revenue, but the railroad operator's stock rallied 2.4% in morning trading, to put it on track to snap a five-session losing streak in which it shed 6.6%. The company disclosed in a presentation for an industrial conference that expects fourth-quarter volumes to decline about 11% from a year ago. That compares guidance provided in October, when Chief Financial Officer Robert Knight said, according to a FactSet transcript, that fourth-quarter volume was expected to decline "at a similar level" to the 8% decline experienced in the third quarter. The company said it expects fourth-quarter revenue to be down a "similar" but "slightly less" percentage as volumes, while the current FactSet revenue consensus of $5.38 billion implies a 6.6% decline. Union Pacific said it expects 2019 pricing "well in excess" of inflation dollars. The stock has rallied 7.4% over the past three months, while the Dow Jones Transportation Average has gained 5.5% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has advanced 5.1%.
