CSX Corp. (CSX) said profit fell in the fiscal third quarter due to a decline in revenue, particularly from a double-digit drop in sales from its coal and consumer-shipping businesses.
Jacksonville, Fla.-based CSX reported net income of $856 million, or $1.08 a share, down from $894 million, or $1.05 a share, a year earlier. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected $1.01 a share.
Revenue fell 4.8% from a year earlier to $2.98 billion, and was in line with analysts' expectations. Sales from coal shipments fell 12% and sales from its intermodal business, which ships consumer goods, fell 10.6%.
Expenses fell roughly 8% compared with last year to $1.69 billion, driven by cost-cutting efforts and volume-related savings.
Railroads in the U.S. have been grappling with fallout from trade tensions between the U.S. and China as well as weakening in parts of the industrial economy.
