Guru Investment Theses on Hub Group Inc

Diamond Hill Capital Comments on Hub Group Inc - Mar 17, 2015

Freight transportation management company Hub Group, Inc. (HUBG) declined after it reported weak third quarter earnings. The company also lowered guidance for the remainder of the year due to poor service levels from its rail partners, as well as a legal settlement with drayage drivers in California. We believe rail service levels should begin to improve in 2015 as railroads are currently making investments to add additional capacity.

Diamond Hill Capital Comments on Hub Group Inc - Oct 17, 2014

Shares of freight transportation management company Hub Group, Inc. (HUBG) fell as slower train speeds and longer dwell times by the rails are increasing costs and impacting volumes for Hub Group. These issues are likely to persist into 2015, but the railroads are taking steps to increase capacity and improve service levels. It does not appear that lower service levels are impacting shippers’ attitudes toward longer-term conversion to intermodal.
