Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 38

Shares of Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI) slipped nearly 1.5 percent in the after-hours trading session on Wednesday, 20 October 2021, after its third-quarter profit fell short of expectations.

The Houston-based energy infrastructure company reported adjusted earnings of 22 cents per share, slightly higher than 21 cents per share in the comparable quarter of 2020. Revenue came in at $3.82 billion, up from $2.9 billion in the year-ago quarter. Analysts were expecting Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI) to report earnings of 24 cents per share on revenue of $3.26 billion.

Speaking on the results, CEO Steve Kean said in a statement:

"In our base natural gas business, we continue to benefit from growing global natural gas demand. Our assets are well positioned to serve growing domestic markets and export locations for LNG and Mexico."

Like Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI), analysts are also closely watching Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), Abbott Laboratories (NYSE:ABT), Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ), Biogen Inc. (NASDAQ:BIIB), and Anthem, Inc. (NYSE:ANTM) after their financial results.

9. Baker Hughes Company (NYSE:BKR)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 40

Moving forward, Baker Hughes Company (NYSE:BKR) expects the demand for oil and natural gas to grow in the coming quarters amid continued economic recovery around the globe.

Like International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE:IBM) Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), Abbott Laboratories (NYSE:ABT), Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ), Biogen Inc. (NASDAQ:BIIB), and Anthem, Inc. (NYSE:ANTM) also caught investors' attention after releasing their earnings.

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 48

Shares of Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS) turned red in the pre-market trading session on Thursday, 21 October 2021, after posting a wider-than-expected loss for the third quarter. The Nevada-based casino operator blamed the pandemic-related restrictions for the weak results.

Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS) reported an adjusted loss of 45 cents per share for the three months ended 30 September 2021, wider than the loss of 22 cents per share estimated by analysts.

Revenue came in at $857 million, well below the consensus forecast of $1.29 billion. Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS) had reported an adjusted loss of 59 cents per share on revenue of $446 million for the comparable quarter of 2020.

Commenting on the quarter, CEO Robert Goldstein said:

"We remain confident in the eventual recovery in travel and tourism spending across our markets.

6. CSX Corporation (NASDAQ:CSX)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 56

In comparison, metals and equipment revenue jumped 30 percent, minerals revenue rose 13 percent, while chemicals revenue increased 10 percent on a year-over-year basis.
