BMO Capital Markets reduced its rating on Kansas City Southern (NYSE: KSU) from Market Perform to Underperform with a reiterated $70 price target.

BMO Capital Markets commented, "We are lowering our rating to Underperform from Market Perform on the basis of the following: (1) valuation appears to be at its peak versus the 5-year historical average and relative to the overall market and offers little room for upside, and (2) earnings estimates for Q4/12 and 2013 appear somewhat optimistic. We expect modest downward earnings revisions given weaker agriculture and coal segments and a generally slowing economy."

Kansas City Southern closed at $83.95 on Friday.
