Today’s video takes a quick look at CSX (CSX - Free Report) ahead of their earnings release. This railroad company is largely focused on the East Coast and Midwest of the United States, and it can be a bellwether of economic activity in the region, making it a closely watched report.

The company’s shares are also likely to be in focus thanks to a nice run in the sector and a fantastic industry rank that is just inside the top 25% overall. Expectations will be high for the company to keep this streak alive in this impending report.

After all, CSX hasn’t missed earnings estimates since early 2014, so it is riding a nice streak overall. However, the stock has a Zacks Rank #3 (hold) and a ‘C’ grade for its fundamentals, while earnings estimates haven’t really kept up with the optimism overall. This will be a case where guidance is key, and where the outlook for the sector and economy at large will weigh on the shares following the release.
