Pacer International (NASDAQ:PACR) reports a Q3 revenue totaling $348.9 million, consensus $375.62 million. The company stated, “We have taken several actions in the quarter to improve our intermodal margins and we are exiting the quarter stronger from all of these actions. However, the competitive pricing environment along with rising rail costs will continue to be a challenge in our intermodal segment…Clearly a challenging quarter as a softening economic environment makes it difficult to achieve yields necessary to offset higher purchased transportation costs. We are addressing under-performing traffic corridors, reducing controllable costs and working with our carriers to mitigate cost increases.” The shares closed at $3.46, down $0.81 or 18.97% on the day. They have traded in a 52-week range of $3.65 to $7.04.

Travelzoo Inc (NASDAQ:TZOO) reports a Q3 revenue reaching $35.4 million, consensus $35.35 million. The company stated, “While we are confident about Travelzoo’s long-term opportunity, we are disappointed with our Q3 results. Declines in SuperSearch and Local Deals were not made up by the positive momentum we saw in Getaways. Continued investments into sales team expansion and subscriber growth, as well as enhancements to our hotel and mobile products are affecting profitability in the near-term, but we believe these are the right steps to position Travelzoo for sustainable and profitable future growth.”
