Four Items to Watch When Union Pacific Reports Earnings

UNP

Four Items to Watch When Union Pacific Reports Earnings. Asit Sharma, The Motley FoolMotley FoolJanuary 17, 2019, 11:20 PM GMT. Union Pacific(NYSE: UNP) is scheduled to report fourth-quarter 2018 earnings on Jan. 24 before the markets open. While the railroad doesn't provide quantitative earnings guidance, understanding key operational themes helps to put its quarterly releases in proper context. Competitor CSX(NASDAQ: CSX) released its own fourth-quarter 2018 earnings on Wednesday, reporting year-over-year revenue growth of 9.8%, fueled by continued aggressive pricing in the face of higher demand. In September, Union Pacific announced its Unified Plan 2020, which seeks to improve the company's operating ratio (i.e., total expenses divided by total revenue, a barometer of a railroad's efficiency). As I discussed at the time, the plan adopts many principles of a typical "precision scheduled railroad" model, while avoiding some of the more drastic changes (like aggressive personnel cuts) that have been undertaken by competitor CSX in its own recent scheduled-railroad implementation.

Union Pacific (UNP) Reports Next Week: Wall Street Expects Earnings Growth

UNP

Wall Street expects a year-over-year increase in earnings on higher revenues when Union Pacific (UNP) reports results for the quarter ended December 2018. While this widely-known consensus outlook is important in gauging the company's earnings picture, a powerful factor that could impact its near-term stock price is how the actual results compare to these estimates. The stock might move higher if these key numbers top expectations in the upcoming earnings report, which is expected to be released on January 24. Our research shows that it is difficult to predict an earnings beat with any degree of confidence for stocks with negative Earnings ESP readings and/or Zacks Rank of 4 (Sell) or 5 (Strong Sell). How Have the Numbers Shaped Up for Union Pacific? For Union Pacific, the Most Accurate Estimate is lower than the Zacks Consensus Estimate, suggesting that analysts have recently become bearish on the company's earnings prospects. Does Earnings Surprise History Hold Any Clue? While calculating estimates for a company's future earnings, analysts often consider to what extent it has been able to match past consensus estimates. So, it's worth taking a look at the surprise history for gauging its influence on the upcoming number. For the last reported quarter, it was expected that Union Pacific would post earnings of $2.09 per share when it actually produced earnings of $2.15, delivering a surprise of +2.87%.

Why CSX, Union Pacific, and Norfolk Southern Fell More Than 10% in December

CSX UNP

December wasn't a great month for the stock market, and it definitely wasn't a good one for the railroad sector. According to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, shares in Union Pacific(NYSE: UNP), CSX Corporation(NASDAQ: CSX), Norfolk Southern Corporation (NYSE: NSC), and others slumped more than 10% in the month and even managed to underperform the dismal decline in the S&P 500 index. What happened, and should investors be concerned? Image source: Getty Images. What's more surprising is that the decline wasn't accompanied by any deterioration in reported numbers from the industry. While you might expect company quarterly reports to lag end-market conditions -- they are reports on the previous quarter's performance and are given a few weeks after the quarter finishes -- investors can access weekly traffic reports from the Association of American Railroads (AAR). Moreover, the railroads have significant exposure to any escalation in trade conflict with China. For example, around 21% of Union Pacific's freight revenue comes from the agriculture sector, and any hit to export markets from tariffs by China (the country is usually the largest purchaser of U.S. soybean exports) will hit the railroads hard.

Canadian National Railway Company (NYSE:CNI), Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (NYSE:CP) - Union Pacific: We Had A Very Good December After All, And Our OR Will Tick Up

UNP

Union Pacific: We Had A Very Good December After All, And Our OR Will Tick Up. Union Pacific (NYSE: UNP) had a strong enough December that it now believes its full-year operating ratio for 2018 will be improved. In a Wednesday 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Union Pacific said it expects to report a "record full-year" operating ratio of 62.7 percent. "While we are confident the actions we are taking will produce near-term results, the timing of these initiatives may not support an improved operating ratio performance for the full year 2018," Knight said back in November. While the improvement in operating revenue is tiny, it is significant in that the companies that have moved toward precision railroading – UP and Norfolk Southern (NYSE: NSC) – have been pressured to do so by the sub-60 operating revenues posted by CSX Corporation (NASDAQ: CSX) which is all in with precision railroading, as well as Canadian Pacific (NYSE: CP) and Canadian National (NYSE: CNI). Norfolk Southern is expected to disclose in February just what it intends to do on its precision railroading initiative, while Union Pacific made clear on its latest earnings call back in October that it is fully committed to the model.

Union Pacific Stock Gains on Bullish FY18 Operational Update

UNP

Shares of Union Pacific Corporation UNP gained during after-hours trading on Jan 9, following the upbeat update issued by the company for full-year 2018. The Omaha, NE-based railroad operator also painted a bright picture with respect to a keenly watched metric — operating ratio (operating expenses as a percentage of revenues). Notably, lesser the value of operating ratio the better, as it implies that more cash is available to the company to reward shareholders through dividends/buybacks. Union Pacific carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Some better-ranked transportation stocks are Azul SA AZUL, Allegiant Travel Company ALGT and Spirit Airlines, Inc.

Union Pacific shares rise on improved efficiency hopes

UNP

1 U.S. railroad, said on Wednesday that a key measure of performance would come in better than expected for 2018, sending shares up 1.6 percent in after-hours trade. The Omaha, Nebraska-based company said its operating ratio was expected to be 62.7 percent for 2018, a 0.1 point improvement from 2017 after stronger-than-expected international container imports and cost controls bolstered results. That was better than investors had hoped for after Union Pacific warned in November that slowing revenue growth and higher costs associated with employee severance and operational inefficiencies could weigh on results. During Vena's time as Canadian National's COO, the company generated the best operating ratio in North America and had the best safety incident ratio in company history, Union Pacific said.
