  • Wells Fargo Upgrades Norfolk Southern Corp. to "Outperform" on Lower Costs and Risks (NSC)

    Wells Fargo reported that it has boosted its rating on Norfolk Southern Corp. (NSC) to "Outperform" due to reduced costs and manageable risks. The firm has upgraded NSC from "Market Perform" to "Outperform," and has maintained its valuation range of $101 to $104. This range suggests up to a 12% upside from the stock's current price of $92.59. Analyst Anthony P. Gallo commented: "We are upgrading the shares of NSC to Outperform from Market Perform with unchanged ests and a 6-12 month valuation range of $101-104. On 1/22/14 following the Q4 2013 earnings report, we raised our ests (2014E to $6.52 from $6.40 and 2015E to $7.46 from $7.20) and valuation range (from $97-101). The other Class 1 Railroads have subsequently reported 2013 results and we find NSC's better-than-peer performance on expense control appealing. In turn, we think this expense performance coupled with a modest improvement in volumes provides improved earnings visibility. Lastly, we think downside EPS risk from further deterioration in coal or potential adverse crude-by-rail regulations will not be material, all else being equal. Conversely, we see upside potential to ests if domestic utility coal were to rebound from more accommodating weather or gas-to-coal switching. With improved earnings visibility via the expense structure, manageable downside earnings risks, attractive valuation and 2%+ dividend yield, we now rate the shares Outperform." Norfolk Southern shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading on Monday.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Norfolk Southern Corp. (NSC) have a 2.33% yield based on Friday's closing price of $92.59. Norfolk Southern Corp.
