    Higher Freight Rates and Lower Taxes to Drive JBHT’s Q4 EPS

    Higher Freight Rates and Lower Taxes to Drive JBHT’s Q4 EPS ## Fourth-quarter expectations J.B. Hunt Transport Services (JBHT) is expected to report its fourth-quarter earnings results on January 17. The transport company has surpassed Wall Street’s consensus estimates in the trailing three quarters with an average positive surprise of 4.6%. It’s likely the company will continue its trend of reporting better-than-expected bottom-line results and witness strong double-digit quarterly earnings growth in the quarter. The company registered double-digit earnings growth in the preceding three quarters of 2018. For the fourth quarter, analysts expect adjusted EPS of $1.50 for JBHT, implying a YoY rise of over 72%. ## Factors to consider Analysts expect increased revenue, improved freight rates, and lower taxes to drive JBHT’s fourth-quarter earnings higher. Revenue for the quarter is likely to jump 16.1% YoY to $2.3 billion mainly driven by increased volumes and higher freight rates. In the past few quarters, the company has witnessed improved freight rates due to strong shipping demand. In the third quarter, JBHT reported a 12% YoY increase in its Intermodal segment’s revenue per load, while its Truck division registered a 19% YoY increase in rates per mile. Furthermore, the effective tax rate for the quarter is expected to come in at 25.3%, substantially down from the year-ago quarter’s rate of 37.6%. The reduction in tax rates is mainly due to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act last year. A lower tax rate is likely to aid the company’s fourth-quarter EPS as well as improve its free cash flows. However, analysts project increased driver wages, recruitment costs, and startup costs for new dedicated contracts to somewhat offset the bottom-line growth in the fourth quarter. ## Full-year expectations For 2018, analysts project EPS to increase 50.8% YoY to $5.40 on higher revenues and lower tax rates. Revenue for the year is anticipated to improve 19.6% YoY to $8.6 billion, while the effective tax rate is forecasted to come down to 24.3% from 35.4% in 2017. C.H. Robinson Worldwide (CHRW), Hub Group (HUBG), and XPO Logistics (XPO), JBHT’s top competitors (IYT), are anticipated to post YoY 2018 EPS growth of 37%, 56.7%, and 69.7%, respectively.

    Transport In 2018: The Year That ELDs, The Economy And The Driver Squeeze All Came Together

    The enforcement of the ELD mandate, which limited capacity, combined with stronger than expected economic growth, which increased demand and contributed to inflationary contract and spot rates in the first half of the year. With shippers keen to avoid the transport costs-related earnings surprises of 2017, carriers were able to enjoy low double-digit increases in contract rates. While local lanes were choked off, national capacity did not get sucked up by relief efforts to the extent it did when Hurricane Harvey flooded the city of Houston in August 2017.

The Inspector General announced on December 18 that fatal accidents in the railroad industry linked to drug and alcohol use, along with reports of an increasing number of railroad workers testing positive for drugs, has placed a spotlight on the regulators' oversight of drug and alcohol testing, prompting the audit that the official confirmed would begin in January.
