    Very thorough. On the light side and off the wall humor, I have my ball glove on in case his eye balls pop out when he makes that wide eyed expression.

    I like the strong balance sheet and the insider ownership. Age and condition of their 6,300 trucks needs to be evaluated. Clarence Warner is almost 80. We need to see who is going to take the wheel when he retires, which can't be too far down the road (pun intended). $WERN is in better shape to withstand rising fuel costs than its competitor debt junkies who could get creamed by both rising fuel costs and rising interest rates. Overall I think this one deserves a serious look.

      That's a great point about Clarence Werner too. His replacement will be key. Thanks Nate.

    The last 3mins are the most important...the risks of trade, and recession are real...and (unsaid) that Amazon is a very crowded theme...if that cracks, won’t trucking also come under pressure? If WERN is so well placed, I would have thought the chart would have had more of the Amazon glow. Will have to investigate what it hasn’t participated.

    Aren't Truck stocks susceptible to rising Gas Prices?

      They just pass them along to their customers. The risk is that higher gas prices could bring on a recession, causing less need for trucking services.

      they are but they've been getting away with passing it off to the consumer and I think that will continue as long as it is gradual.

      Yes very susceptible. My family is fourth generation in the industry and just passing on the cost has never worked.

    Excellent idea, I hope. $WERN down to $38.45 today. Put on initial position. Thanks. DLS
