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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Robust revenues at the Logistics segment (up more than 100% year over year in 2021) due to increase in load count and revenue per load are driving Knight-Swift's top line. Owing to favorable freight market conditions and higher trucking rates, the company provided an upbeat earnings guidance for 2022. The company’s measures to reward its shareholders is encouraging. During 2021, the company rewarded shareholders with $63.5 million in dividends and $57.2 million in share buybacks. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for current-year earnings has been revised upwards over the past 60 days. However, persistent rail congestion and rail allocations are hurting Knight-Swift's intermodal volumes. High costs related to driver wages, equipment, maintenance and fuel are pushing up operating expenses, thus dampening bottom-line growth." (1/31/2022)
  • 2. 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)
