The key things to look for in an income statement while doing Norfolk Southern stock analysis are:

  • Revenue: The money received by selling of goods or services comes under this line item. A QoQ growth - See: Norfolk Southern revenue chart, implies that the company is growing. It has not been the case with Norfolk Southern. One must look at stocks with increasing revenues, and stay away from stocks whose revenues or sales are declining.
  • Bottom line: The bottomline or the net income figure is arrived at by deducting all expenses from the topline which in this case is $3.97B for NSC stock. An improving bottomline implies that the company is growing its profits.

The income statement is also called the profit and loss statement. Apart from the NSC income statement, one can check the Norfolk Southern historical stock prices to check how the price has moved with time.
