Florida-based CSX 2Q profit more than doubled as railroad hauled 27% more
CSX railroad’s second-quarter profit more than doubled as the economy continued to rebound from the depths of the coronavirus pandemic.
Florida-based CSX says it hauled 27% more freight than a year ago when the economy slowed to a crawl because of restrictions related to the virus.
The railroad said Wednesday that it earned $1.17 billion, or 52 cents per share, during the quarter.
The results included a one-time boost of 12 cents per share related to a property rights sale to the state of Virginia. That beat the 37 cents per share that Wall Street analysts anticipated.
