    In Midtown Atlanta, 'a similar lifestyle to Manhattan or San Francisco'

    When U.S. companies contemplate major expansions in the Sunbelt, Atlanta’s Midtown continues to emerge as a routine contender to land those projects. In a recent call with Wall Street analysts, Colin Connolly, president and CEO of Cousins Properties Inc. (NYSE: CUZ), one of the largest office landlords in the South, cited Midtown and downtown Austin as two of the region’s most rapidly urbanizing districts. A lower cost of doing business, cheaper taxes, fewer regulations — that’s been the economic development pitch in the Sunbelt for a while.

    Norfolk Southern's stock jumps to record high after big profit beat

    Shares of Norfolk Southern Co. shot up 5.4% to a record high Wednesday, after the railroad operator reported a fourth-quarter profit that was well above expectations, although revenue fell slightly more than forecast. Net income declined to $666 million, or $2.55 a share, from $702 million, or $2.57 a share, in the year-ago period, beating the FactSet consensus of $2.28. Revenue fell 7% to $2.69 billion, just shy of the FactSet consensus of $2.70 billion, as volume declined 9%. Earnings were supported by a 5% drop in railway operating expenses to $1.7 billion, as declines in compensation and benefits, fuel costs, equipment rent and materials usage were partially offset by lower gains on property sales and increased purchased services expenses. CFRA analyst Jim Corridore reiterated his hold rating, but boosted his stock price target to $225 from $194, saying he believed valuations should benefit from "efforts to raise operating margins as it phases in precision scheduled railroading principles, which we think are a much more efficient and less costly way to operate; however, we think much of this valuation expansion has already occurred." The stock has hiked up 16.7% over the past three months, while the Dow Jones Transportation Average has tacked on 1.3% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 6.6%.
