Kansas City Southern (KSU) Falls: Stock Goes Down 5.1%

Zacks Equity Research

Kansas City Southern (KSU) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell over 5% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the most recent downtrend for KSU, as the stock is down nearly 15% since Jan 23.

This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as the railways company has seen 9 negative revisions in the past few weeks and its current year earnings consensus has moved lower over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

KSU currently has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

Investors interested in the broader transportation sector may also consider stocks like DHT Holdings, Inc. (DHT) and Southwest Airlines Co. (LUV), both carrying a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
