A federal jury ordered Swift Transportation to pay its trucking rival more than $15 million for allegedly poaching drivers who were under contract to CRST Expedited, which is based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. According to court documents filed in U.S. District Court in Iowa in March 2017, CRST claims Swift purposely recruited and hired drivers who had completed CRST's driver training program to obtain their commercial driver's licenses (CDLs), but were still contractually obligated to work for the motor carrier for 10 months. In the suit, CRST identified more than 250 drivers who had signed 10-month employment contracts with the carrier that were later recruited by Swift.

Add Covenant Transportation Group (NASDAQ: CVTI) to the group of truckload (TL) carriers that won't be able to meet analyst expectations for the second quarter of 2019. Earlier today (July 17, 2019), Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: KNX) modestly lowered its earnings outlook for both the second and third quarters of 2019 and provided a fourth quarter 2019 guidance range that was in-line with analyst estimates. Last week it was a different Chattanooga-based TL carrier U.S. Xpress (NYSE: USX) that said it failed to meet its previous operating ratio (operating expenses as a percentage of revenue) target laid out in its initial public offering roadshow and later reiterated on its first quarter 2019 earnings call.
A day after truckload (TL) carriers' stocks rallied on the not-as-bad-as-expected earnings report from J.B. Hunt (NASDAQ: JBHT), Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: KNX) negatively pre-announced its earnings expectations. In a press release, KNX said that it now expects second quarter 2019 adjusted earnings per share to be in the range of $0.57 to $0.58, lower than the previous guidance range of $0.62 to $0.64 and the consensus estimate of $0.61. Additionally, third quarter 2019 earnings per share guidance was lowered to a range of $0.54 to $0.57, down from the previous guidance range of $0.62 to $0.66 and lower than the consensus estimate of $0.62.
Knight-Swift (KNX) doesn't possess the right combination of the two key ingredients for a likely earnings beat in its upcoming report. Get prepared with the key expectations.
Based on preliminary results, the company now expects the Adjusted EPS(1) for the second quarter of 2019 will range from $0.57 to $0.58 (which is an update from the previously-announced expectation of $0.62 to $0.64). The company expects the Adjusted EPS(1) for the fourth quarter of 2019 will range from $0.73 to $0.77. The updates to the expected Adjusted EPS ranges for the second and the third quarter of 2019 are primarily a result of the oversupply of capacity in the truckload freight market that resulted in greater than expected downward pressure on revenue per loaded mile, excluding fuel surcharge.
After trading ended on Wednesday afternoon (July 10), Deutsche Bank transports equities analyst Amit Mehrotra issued several investor notes reflecting his updated expectations for second quarter earnings.

Like many Wall Street analysts, Mehrotra was cheered by Knight-Swift (NYSE: KNX) management's ability to digest Swift after the mega-merger and wring impressive returns – including a sub-80 percent operating ratio – from its assets.
