Stock closed at 25.75 day of article, up 10% since. No opportunity offered for company to respond to the figures presented. There are some valid concerns addressed and I appreciate you providing the link but I believe as an investment in the near term your needle is pointing up. Noticed they mentioned Jacobs' former companies but not the gains that the stocks made in his time of ownership. This was the time to borrow and build with historic interest rates and they did that. They have a lot to prove, they've lost half their value from the highs, but that's what makes a market. Doubters are an important part of the process, you need them. Still betting on Jacobs until I'm convinced there's a reason not to.

Funny thing, it was on Yahoo's business page. And yet, nothing about it in message boards or other social media.

Would love zippity, chickeneyedog or other long term members (who have kept up on this stock since before 2011) to comment on the breakdown presented in this long term view of XPO. Are they just beating XPO up unfairly? or is there some truth to their review?
Why?my insurance is included in my pay,I have a $100 dollar per year deductible and a $10 copay for office visits and emergency room visits.My New England pension will give me about $5,000 a month at age 60 and even if it gets cut in half I have a ton of money in stocks and 401scam market that I invested by not having to pay insurance.ABF will end up with all their money back plus a raise after the end of their contract.YRC went broke because they over spent just like XPO is doing now.
you really should not worry about how I trade XPO. I am doing very well. And I don't need a half baked overzealous short commenting about a small portion of my trades.
That being said XPO is way oversold.
YRCW and ABFS employees are currently giving back 15% and 10% of their hourly wages right? The Central states pension fund is underfunded by Billions and Billions of dollars, right? That pension recently tried to cut benefits because they are worried about solvency, right? Why would anybody want to join that union?
Yes my acerbic little friend, your approach seems to be going quite well for you. (Assuming you overlook the 20% decline in the last two weeks and all the shares you bought in the mid-$30's as this thing was going to $17) Yeah, you're a genius.
You speak a lot of NON-sense! Are you going to go on your Recession rant again?
Analysts that are a lot smarter than you, from Morgan Stanley, Barclays, Stifel and Today Buckingham, all have Buy or Overweight ratings on XPO.
Ill stick with the professionals. You have fun with the unpredictable Market Manipulators.
Heck yeah, maybe they can get a piece of that awesome union pension...who wouldn't want to rely on the Teamsters and Central States for their retirement security!!!
Hopefully you're learning something...hold tight before you average down and if you're still long, you want to hedge with some puts going into 2Q earnings...estimates are still high. There is a potential sucker play here...may see some movement up as we move closer to earnings...may test $30 again...don't bite. XPO's time will come for a big move up but its not here yet.
YRC will be bankrupt even before XPO. That's a feat in itself. If XPO buys them, I guess it would speed up putting XPO down and we can all move on.
By the way, to the bulls like Sarcean cheering it up at $32 a few weeks ago...you have lost 20% in about 30 days. Still bullish?
This baby is losing support rapidly...there is no way they are going to earn a clean $.22 in 2Q...it isn't happening. Regardless, earnings estimates are coming down and that is going to drive the stock price down leading into next earnings. If you remain long, do yourself a favor and pick up some puts as a relatively cheap insurance policy.
There is nothing about this post that isn't completely absurd. Please reassure me that you aren't making your own investment decisions.
Could buy them lot of time and favor with the unions. Yrcw has managed to get things inline an have turned corner .
In a couple of years we will find out the saga of XPO - whether it fizzles under 20 and all hype.
Or, XPO was really a sleeper can go over 30, then 40, to over 50.
In other words, all the mergers to get bigger was worth it, or the huge debt and poor economy just too much weight for it to survive.
High risk/low reward/high reward.
The other to watch is if the stock market can get out of this trading range, S&P 500 trades 2150-2200 and XPO doesn't follow higher, is a concern.
Transports tell a clue where economy is headed,.
Let's see if BJ holds a magic wand over XPO without accounting issues.
