Shares of Loews Corp (L) slumped Monday after the company reported a 44 percent fall in quarterly profit due to lower revenue from its energy and insurance businesses. The hotel, energy and financial services conglomerate reported earnings of $0.46 a share for the second quarter ended June 30, missing the consensus estimate of $0.70 a share. Revenue also came in light with $3.44 billion for the period, missing analysts’ estimates of $3.59 billion, according to Thomson Reuters data. In the same period of last year, the company earned $0.70 per share on revenue of $3.59 billion. The company said its weaker than expected earnings results were hurt by soft sales at its two biggest subsidiaries, insurance giant CNA Financial (CNA) and drilling company Diamond Offshore (DO).
