J.B. Hunt (JBHT) to Report Q1 Earnings: What's in Store?
J.B. Hunt (JBHT) to Report Q1 Earnings: What's in Store? The increased wages are primarily aimed at retaining drivers amid their scarcity.Additionally, rising operating costs might lead to deterioration in operating ratio (operating expenses as a percentage of revenues), a key measure of operational efficiency.However, J.B. Hunt is benefiting from high freight rates on the back of strong shipping demand. Moreover, an impressive segmental performance is likely to boost the company’s top line.The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Dedicated Contract Services segment revenues in the first quarter stands at $607 million, higher than $494 million reported in the year-ago period.The consensus mark for Integrated Capacity Solutions revenues is pegged at $310 million, above the reported figure of $296 million reported in the first quarter of 2018.The same for intermodal revenues stands at $1,210 million compared with $1,070 million reported in the prior-year quarter.Meanwhile, the consensus estimate for truck revenues is pegged at $106 million, up from $93 million reported in the year-earlier period.Further, the company’s Cory 1st Choice Home Delivery acquisition completed this February, which has strengthened its Final Mile operations, is likely to bolster results in the first quarter. Thus, a negative Earnings ESP in this case leaves the surprise prediction inconclusive.We caution against all Sell-rated stocks (#4 or 5) going into an earnings announcement, especially when the company is seeing negative estimate revisions.Stocks to ConsiderInvestors interested in the broader Transportation sector may consider Air Lease Corporation AL, Ryder System, Inc. R and SkyWest, Inc. SKYW as these stocks possess the right combination of elements to beat on earnings in the next releases.Air Lease has an Earnings ESP of +4.41% and a Zacks Rank of 3.
