A recessions a coming this summer and high oil prices are not going away since the falling dollar is to blame, and continued inflation is not going to bring the value of the dollar up any time soon. Burnanke was not helping this country by bailing out the crust of American society. Also, Bush's stimulus package didn't help the upward inflationary pressure that is killing this countries middle class. Sorry about my rant but anyway my point is to sell trucking since rail is about to take over from the high price of fuel.

From M-star... Forward Air has no rival with the same scale and service quality competing away its profits, and high barriers to entry insulate the company from potential entrants. Forward Air offers substantial cost savings compared with traditional air freight carriers, whose prices per pound of freight are 4-5 times higher. Fair Value Estimate $40.00

Already owns 80% of the marketshare in their niche space in the defered ltl airfreight business. No room to grow core business, except through rate increases- will encourage customers to look elsewhere for options (not direct competitors, but indirect such as scheduled LTL providers and truckload consolidators.

Barely any compettion in its sector LTL- less than truck load transportation freight forwarder.
@Q earnings 41 cents, 14th consecutive q of growth. Revenues up 12%, improving margins 23%,$3 cash per share, trading at lower end of 5 year p/e ratio. Future looks positive a double in 2 years.
