What are Wall Street analysts saying about Werner Enterprises stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Werner Enterprises stock:
  • 1. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "We are assuming coverage of Outperform rating and slightly lower $8 price target. We continue to believe that KSHB is on the right path to becoming the most trusted and reputable packaging and product supplier to the rapidly growing cannabis industry. Therefore, we believe KSHB offers an attractive investment opportunity for small cap growth / cannabis related investors." (4/26/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Werner Enterprises has been benefiting from robust growth in its truckload segment. Notably, truckload revenues, which contribute to the majority of the top line, grew 15% in 2018. The company’s focus on improving its operational efficiency through investments in new trucks and trailers is laudable. To this end, it aims at maintaining a relatively young fleet of trucks and trailers compared with those of its counterparts. Additionally, Werner Enterprises’ measures to reward shareholders through dividends and share buybacks are impressive. Its low leverage ratio is another positive. However, the company’s high operating expenses might hamper bottom-line growth in the first quarter of 2019. Detailed results will be available on Apr 25. Werner's high capital expenses might further dent the bottom line. Moreover, weakness in the truckload freight environment compared to the year ago period might affect its first-quarter results. " (4/1/2019)
