Bank Of America Cites Declining Crude Prices In Lower Rail Estimates

Share:

In a note to clients on Tuesday, Bank of America analyst Ken Hoexter stated that a decline in crude oil prices could result in a lower than previously expected crude-by-rail volume growth rate from several Canadian Oil Sands projects in the second half of 2015 and in to 2016.

As such, the analyst is lowering his 2015 rail earnings per share estimates by 1 percent on average as crude-by-rail represents approximately a small portion (approximately 1.5 percent) of current rail carloads.
