Which Railroad Stocks Are On Track for a Surprise?

It had been a brutal stretch for a number of railroad stocks thanks to declining growth in China and crumbling commodity prices. But recent trading has been a bit more favorable and expectations might finally be within reach.

And while CSX had a decent report last week, we will get more information regarding how the sector is progressing thanks to four key reports over the next few days. Expectations are certainly elevated for this highly-ranked sector, but can some of the big caps deliver?

Union Pacific (UNP) is actually a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) stock, while it hasn’t seen estimates move higher as of late. However, Canadian Pacific (CP) looks to be a bit better-positioned thanks to its Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and its positive Earnings ESP.

And finally, both Norfolk Southern (NSC) and Kansas City Southern ( KSU) are reporting too. These are actually both expected to see EPS of 0.96, while both have a positive Earnings ESP suggesting rising estimates into the report.

Clearly, although the industry rank is pretty promising, the space could be a mixed bag this earnings season. Watch the video for more earnings insights and a closer look at the charts for these rail giants. And make sure to tune in later in the week for more analysis of company reports!
