World Capital Markets Lower on Friday

Greenbrier Companies posts upbeat estimates

U.S. markets are set to open in negative territory Friday, after a weaker-than-expected jobs report. Further, fears about the trade war persist.

Shares of The Greenbrier Companies Inc. (NYSE:GBX) lost ground on premarket trading on the heels of the company reporting its financial results for the second quarter. The company posted earnings per share of $1.02 on revenue of $629.34 million, registering a growth of 11.1% from the prior-year quarter. The company managed to beat estimates in earnings by 5 cents and by $16.59 million in revenue. Further, adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $79.1 million, or 12.6% of revenue.

Looking ahead, Greenbrier expects for fiscal 2018, revenue will be between $2.4 and $2.6 billion and diluted earnings per share will be $5.00.
