What are analysts saying about Heartland Express stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Heartland Express stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Heartland Express, Inc. is a short-to-medium haul truckload carrier based near Iowa City, Iowa. The Company provides nationwide transportation service to major shippers, using late-model tractors and a uniform fleet of 53-foot aluminum plate dry vans. " (2/14/2017)
J P Morgan Chase & Co analysts commented, "We are reiterating our Underweight rating on HTLD and establishing a Dec 17 price target of $18. Heartland continues to operate well and accumulate cash in a challenging freight market, positioning this pure-play truckload carrier well for the eventual uptick in load activity. However, similar to short haul, high margin peer KNX, HTLD already trades at prior cycle peak multiples on 2016 trough estimates, and at current valuations we see more relative upside in other TL carrier stocks (SWFT)."
