Deutsche Bank adjusts targets for trucking, transportation names

  • Deutsche Bank is out with some commentary and price target adjustments for a number of transport names. "We expect slow growth to continue well into 2014," analyst Justin Yagerman notes, but says "this is not a bad environment for earnings growth as cost inflation is generally modest and volumes are expanding, albeit at a slower-than-desired pace."

    I don't think they are going out on much of a limb with CSX at a $28 target, considering the price is at $27.84 today, and has been in the mid-to-upper $27 range for a while.

    The stock recently reached $28.25 just a few weeks ago, so why is this a surprise?

    We are in a 2% economy so the only for transports to increase EPS more than that is to raise rates and cut expenses. Rails talk about raising rates at "inflation-plus," but with no inflation that's zero.
