We think now is the time to own Hub as we embark on a new intermodal pricing cycle after margins bottomed in 2014. Using history as our guide, margins peaked in 2007, but we are only about halfway back to those levels. As intermodal is highly correlated with truckload, it is the calm before the truckload capacity storm and we would be buyers of HUBG." (2/15/2017)
