Remember guys that they also said too much of a warm whether in winter is not good either...for one thing the heating oil transportation will slow down among other winter related shipments. However, census estimate is (0.40) and I believe we will be around (0.20) loss or better. Last year the storm paralyzed but this year we will have great numbers. If we can repeat Q4 then above $10 is not out of question.
Yes I agree. Particularly hot or really cold weather causes issues with trucks that require repairs. I think the mild will work out to be a net neutral for us. More trucks on the road, but fewer repairs.
Doesn't matter, they will beat and we're going alot higher boys!!!!!!!
I do not believe we will show a loss. We will be green by a few to several pennies. Take a look at the percent by which Q4 2011 beat Q4 2010 and then look at that beat vs. the analyst predictions for these Q's. And I do not think I am comparing apples to oranges--- Q4 and Q1 are generally not that dissimilar. JMHO.
Management did seem to strongly indicate in the last conference call that this quarter would be in the red, but I think not near the loss from 1Q last year. Somewhere between (10-20). No matter I think Q2 and Q3 blow the doors out. Certainly $2.00 a share is within reach for the year.
