What are Wall Street analysts saying about Knight-Swift Transportation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Knight-Swift Transportation stock:
  • 1. The analyst said its recent acquisition of Midwest Motor Express shows the commitment to grow its LTL business and diversify its business mix. He believes this new revenue mix shift warrants a higher multiple given the premium the market has given LTL carriers over the last few years." (12/9/2021)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "We are impressed by Knight-Swift's efforts to reward its shareholders. In the first half of 2021, it returned $53.7 million (share repurchase) and $30.3 million (dividends) to shareholders. In April, the company announced a 25% increase in its quarterly dividend payout. Improvement in operating ratio (operating expenses, as a percentage of revenues) is encouraging. Knight-Swift's decision to increase its 2021 earnings guidance in the range of $3.90-$4.05 (earlier: $3.45-$3.60) reflects improvement in freight conditions. However, shares of the company have underperformed its industry in a year’s time, partly due to lingering coronavirus-led headwinds and increase in operating expenses.  Inflationary pressure on driver wages, recruiting and hiring expenses represent an added headwind."
