  • Do Major US Railroads’ Dividends Appeal to Investors in 2018?
    Market Realist15 days ago

    Do Major US Railroads’ Dividends Appeal to Investors in 2018?

    In the previous part of this series, we examined the leverage levels of major US railroads after their first-quarter earnings. Now let’s consider their dividend payments. Since it’s a capital-intensive industry, railroads reinvest most of their net earnings back into the business. The retention per share ratio is thus very high. That, in turn, lowers their dividend payout ratios. The transportation and logistics sector is included in the industrials sector. Railroads’ dividend yields have been historically lower than the other subsectors in the industrial (IYJ) sector.

    What Pulled Down Union Pacific’s Carload Volumes in Week 25?

    In Week 25, which ended on June 23, Western US rail giant Union Pacific’s (UNP) carload traffic declined, in contrast to a rise reported by US railroads overall. The railroad posted a YoY (year-over-year) carload traffic loss of 1.6%. It hauled ~96,000 carloads that week compared to 97,500 the previous year. Compared to US railroads’ (XLI) 2.5% YoY growth, UNP saw a negative carload traffic change in Week 25. Its carload volumes trended in the opposite direction of rival BNSF Railway’s (BRK.B) carload traffic change.

    Commodities That Moved BNSF Railway’s Volumes in Week 25

    Major Western US rail freight carrier BNSF Railway is privately owned by Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). In Week 25, its carload traffic grew more than intermodal. Normally, it’s the other way round. That week, BNSF’s carload volumes grew 6.5% YoY (year-over-year) to 100,800 railcars compared to 94,600.

  • Which Railroad Had the Highest Capex-to-Revenue Ratio in Q1 2018?
    Market Realist18 days ago

    Which Railroad Had the Highest Capex-to-Revenue Ratio in Q1 2018?

    What differentiates UNP is the fact that it has upped its capex-to-revenue ratio in the first quarter by 0.8%, from 15.8% in Q1 2017. The capex-to-revenue ratio for Eastern US rail carrier Norfolk Southern (NSC) is 14.1% for the first quarter, from 17.1% in Q1 2017. Canadian National Railway’s (CNI) capex-to-revenue ratio has gone up 1% to 13.3% in the first quarter, from 12.3% in Q1 2017.

  • First-Quarter Operating Cash Flows of Major US Railroads
    Market Realist18 days ago

    First-Quarter Operating Cash Flows of Major US Railroads

    After examining major US railroads’ EPS, let’s look now at their operating cash flows in the first quarter. The level of operating cash flow reflects a railroad’s immediate health. Cash flow is a vital factor that enables a company to pay its current expenses. Major components of these expenses include employee costs and servicing of debts. So a railroad’s cash flow statement is an important financial statement for lenders and investors who want to invest in railroad stocks.

  • This US Railroad Had the Highest Earnings Growth in Q1 2018

    This US Railroad Had the Highest Earnings Growth in Q1 2018

    In the previous part of this series, we reviewed major US railroads’ operating margins. In this part, we’ll examine their adjusted EPS in the first quarter. Railroads (XLI) with strong track records of managing costs amid higher volumes are rewarded by the market. Their earnings often grow at a rapid pace. Major non-operating costs such as interest also impact railroads’ earnings. Lower taxes due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act resulted in far superior earnings growth for railroads with US-specific operations in the first quarter.

  • Which Railroad Topped First-Quarter Operating Margin Growth?
    Market Realist19 days ago

    Which Railroad Topped First-Quarter Operating Margin Growth?

    Earlier in this series, we looked at first-quarter freight volume growth for the major US railroads (XLI). In this part, we’ll review their operating margin changes for the same quarter. Railroads report operating ratios, which is an important metric for evaluating railroad performance. Operating ratio is the ratio of total operating expenses to revenue. An operating margin is the flip side of an operating ratio. The higher the operating margin, the better the operating efficiency and, in turn, the net margin.

    This Railroad Led in First-Quarter Intermodal Revenue Growth

    Intermodal is the second-largest revenue source for US railroads (FXR). Intermodal freight haulage involves cargo transportation in an intermodal container using various modes of transportation without handling the cargo itself while switching over modes. Railroads face tough competition from trucking companies in their intermodal operations.

  • What Coal Did to Major US Railroads’ Revenues in Q1 2018

    What Coal Did to Major US Railroads’ Revenues in Q1 2018

    According to the AAR (Association of American Railroads), coal accounted for 32.2% of originated tonnage for Class I railroads (XTN) in the United States. In the previous year, the share was 31.6%, indicating that coal remains a dominant force among all the commodities hauled by these railroads. The association further revealed that coal’s share of their total operating revenues rose from 13.9% in 2016 to 14.8% in 2017, behind only intermodal revenues. Nearly 70% of the coal consumed by US coal-fired power plants is carried by railroads.

    What Moved US Rail Freight Traffic in Week 24?

    Demand for rail service is dependent on the demand for the products moved by railroads. So, rail traffic is a useful measure to sense the broader economic activity, both for specific industries and for the economy. Every week, the major North American railroads (UNP) submit their traffic data for the previous week to the AAR (Association of American Railroads). AAR publishes this data in its weekly railroad traffic report every Wednesday.
