Undervalued with reasonable growth potential

USAK is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of USAK's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the transportation industry, USAK is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that USAK is potentially underpriced.
