Good growth in the last few years with a solid balance sheet. Trucking should continue to stay in high demand and grow even more as people turn to online services for product shipments. Not a huge company, but stable and has been around for a while, also providing a small dividend.

Marten Transport is a well financed, well managed trucking operation.
But with it's history of falling stock pricing during fall and winter months, along with the heavy regulations from the FTA. I'm going short on the next few months.

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.
