GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Business Description

Industry: Transportation & Logistics » Trucking
Compare:JBHT, NPEXY, ODFL, WERN, CNW » details
Covenant Transportation Group, Inc., a Nevada holding company organized in May 1994. The Company through its wholly-owned subsidiaries provides truckload transportation services throughout the continental United States, into and out of Mexico and into and out of portions of Canada. The Company has two reportable segments: Asset-Based Truckload Services (Truckload) and non-asset based brokerage and ancillary services (Solutions). The Truckload segment consists of three asset-based operating fleets that are aggregated because they have similar economic characteristics and meet the aggregation criteria. The three operating fleets that comprise Company's Truckload segment are: Covenant Transport, Inc. (Covenant Transport), which provides expedited long-haul, dedicated, temperature-controlled, and solo-driver regional service; Southern Refrigerated Transport, Inc. (SRT), which provides primarily long-haul and regional temperature-controlled service; and Star Transportation, Inc. (Star), which provides regional solo-driver and dedicated services, primarily in the southeastern United States. The Solutions segment provides: freight brokerage service directly and through freight brokerage agents who are paid a commission for the freight they provide; less-than-truckload consolidation services; and accounts receivable factoring. The Company competes to some extent with railroads and rail-truck intermodal service but attempt to differentiate ourselves from them on the basis of service. The Companys operations are regulated and licensed by various U.S. agencies.
