Last year financial year did not favor many investors. The first quarter seemed to support some of the investors as percentage gains were evidenced. An economic turnover occurred in the third quarter as the attitudes of potential entrepreneurs shifted to great worry. One of the stock market that recorded significant revenues was the Southern City of Kansas. The market made a record of 598 million U.S dollars. However, the revenues dropped by an estimated 2%, as compared to the 2014 fourth quarter.
The city’s operational expenses accounted a value of $379 million, which was much lower to 2014 fourth quarter which registered a value of $333 million. The operational costs were not inclusive of fuel prices which depreciated at a high percentage. The 2015 fourth quarter stocks market registered a 2% increase as when compared to that of last year. 2014 fourth quarter amounted to $214 million whereas last year fourth quarter attained $219 million dollars. Regarding operating ratio, 3.3 point improvement was noted, which accounted for 63.4% increase in the 2015 fourth quarter. The total net income reported was $140 million in the 2015 fourth quarter. One diluted share accounted for $1.28. The diluted earnings registered $1.23 per share in last year’s fourth quarter. Exchange costs and fluctuations in foreign currencies rate were not included in the net income calculations. The opening value of net income was $504 million. The net income, however, dropped up to $485 million.
The estimated price of one share also dropped from $4.55 to $4.40 from the 2014 fourth quarter to last year fourth quarter. The international stocks market had a combined ratio of 95.1% and a net income of $120.4 million annually. In the 2015 fourth quarter, most of the companies completed their purchase price adjustments related to acquisitions, a scenario that market strategists termed as an important factor that will favor investments plans in 2016.
