    Norfolk Southern's (NSC -7.5%) dismal Q3 results prompt three downgrades, including Citigroup's reduction of its stock rating to Neutral from Buy. "Earnings headwinds are likely to persist into 1H13 due to sharp Y/Y declines in export coal volumes and the company's relative inability to manage short term costs in a weak volume environment," Citi writes. Also, CSX -3.4%.

    More on CSX's Q3 results: The railroad blames the 1.9% drop in earnings on slumping demand for coal by electric utilities. Coal shipments fell 16% Y/Y, vs. 14% declines in both Q1 and Q2. Coal has accounted for ~20% of CSX's total volume and nearly 28% of revenue YTD. Total Q3 shipment volume fell 1.2%, although the figure would have been up ~3.5% aside from coal. CSX +1.2% AH.

    The Dow Jones Transports were a notable underperformer in Q3, -3.4% vs. +6.6% for the DJIA, and they trailed the broader market again today. Overseas Shipholding (OSG -6.4%) was a notable laggard within the group, and railroads remained weak: CSX -1.7%, KSU -1.5%. If economic data stays sluggish, it's just a question of when, not if, declining transports bleed into the broader market.
