Union Pacific Corp. (UNP) reported first-quarter earnings before the opening bell Thursday. Here's what you need to know:


REVENUE: Sales rose 6.7% to $5.48 billion driven by growth across most of the railroad's segments. Agricultural product sales were flat for the period. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters had forecast $5.39 billion in revenue.


EARNINGS: Profit rose to $1.31 billion, or $1.68 a share, from $1.07 billion, or $1.32 a share a year earlier. Wall Street was looking for earnings of $1.66 a share.


FUEL COSTS: The Railroad also benefited from increased fuel surcharge revenue as the prices for fuel increase. The per gallon average quarterly diesel fuel price in the first quarter grew 22% to $2.13.


STOCK MOVE: Shares rose 1.4% to $138 in light premarket trade. The stock has risen 1.5% so far this year while the S&P 500 has dropped 1.3%.
