Orders for heavy-duty trucks rose 12% Y/Y in December and +46% from November, according to market research firm ACT Research. Although macro-freight metrics remain mixed, December's heavy-duty order volume was the second-highest month since early 2006, and is giving a lift to trucking stocks: Paccar (PCAR +4.4%), Navistar (NAV +3%) and Cummins (CMI +2.3%).
