Usak is Truckload company foolishly competent and long on experience. It has demonstrated its ability to run with the Big dogs and quitely build its fleet size and logistical operations. A boring but foolishly effective. Its stock price has been hammered down but its business still grows.

As noted USA Truck keeps its nose foolishly focused on the basics. It outperformed the analysts predictions and was ballyhooed by fools who don't have experience with trucking. It looks like it will do it again too. The Ballyhooers also underestimated and fools in the driver's seat at USA Truck. As freight shrunk and fuel prices soared USA fools watched as I did the overall industry available capacity shrink....Pity the poor fools. Also USA Truck has a foolish logistics division that has been foolishly growing. USA Truck and a few other trucking fools are actually positioned between much , much smaller companies and the the whales like JB Hunt. It is large enough and experienced enough yet small enough to be nimble and that is why it has a foolsih upside somewhere between 23 and 32. Truckers lead the nation out of recession and while the train segment has grown with rising fuel cost USA Truck has always had fuel surcharges in place. Its not on the learning curve right now its on top of the learning curve. AS the foolish economy whips some into submission, USA Truck just shifts gears and tractors growth, revenue and now profits. Climb aboard and come along for the ride.
