Loews Breaks Down After It Swings to Fourth-Quarter Loss

Tony Owusu

fell 6.1% to close at $44.56 Monday after it swung to a fourth-quarter loss of $165 million. The company said the loss was driven by "catastrophe losses at CNA Financial Corp.," but the company also said that the discrepancy between this quarter's earnings and last year's was due partly to the $200 million benefit booked in the 2017 fourth quarter thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
