A Michigan truck driver said he is "in agony" over Sunday's fatal crash in Indiana that left three people, including a 1-year-old, dead, according to a handwritten note the 34-year-old wrote that was released by the Boone County Sheriff's Office.

Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings Inc. (NYSE: KNX) expects to release its 2019 fourth quarter earnings on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 prior to the market open by filing a Form 8-K with the SEC. The earnings release will be available on the Company’s website http://investor.knight-swift.com/events and the Form 8-K will be available on the SEC website http://www.sec.gov.
In a note to clients providing a 2020 outlook and a preview of fourth-quarter earnings, Morgan Stanley analyst Ravi Shanker lowered earnings estimates for most of the transportation companies he covers. The analyst took down earnings estimates for less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers and railroads in the fourth quarter of 2019, with mixed actions taken on global logistics companies, as some estimates moved higher and some lower. The bulk of the earnings cuts were made to the fourth quarter, with more modest alterations made to 2020.
While management teams from most transportation companies may be eager to turn the page on 2019, investors are likely hoping for more. The publicly traded shares of the truckload (TL) carriers, as well as other modes of transportation, performed ahead of the broader markets and major indexes and averages in what was a poor year for TL fundamentals. Most carriers entered 2019 will their coffers replenished after a historically strong 2018 freight market looking to reinvest fresh capital back into their networks and pursue new offerings and technologies.
Knight-Swift Transportation (NYSE: KNX) is appealing to federal regulators that it be exempt from having to provide certain record-keeping requirements for its drivers citing onerous and unnecessary costs. A letter from Knight-Swift attorneys recently made public by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) explains that Knight Transportation's first attempt at the exemption, in a request filed in October 2016 before its 2017 merger with Swift Transportation, went without a response after the agency confirmed it had been received. "Consequently, their application languished for over three years without an answer from FMCSA," wrote Sean Scapellato, a partner with the law firm Cobb Dill Hammett.
In a press release after the market close, the Phoenix-based company stated that it was lowering its fourth quarter 2019 adjusted earnings-per-share (EPS) guidance to a range of $0.50 to $0.52, from its previously lowered guidance range of $0.62 to $0.65. Further, Knight-Swift plans to revise its first quarter 2020 guidance of $0.42 to $0.46 and provide initial second quarter 2020 guidance when it reports fourth quarter earnings in January. The current fourth quarter EPS estimate is $0.62, and the first quarter 2020 estimate is $0.42.

Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings Inc. said late Thursday that it was lowering its fourth-quarter guidance because the trucking industry has too much capacity for shipping for the demand during the holiday quarter. Knight-Swift stock fell more than 3.6% in the extended session. The company said that it believes there is too much capacity because there are fewer replacement orders for long-haul trucks, trucking employment has contracted and there are "trucking business failures." As a result, the company is expecting adjusted fourth-quarter earnings of 50 cents to 52 cents a share versus its previous expectation of 62 cents to 65 cents a share. Knight-Swift adjusts earnings for tax impacts and noncash impairments, among other items. Knight-Swift shares have gained 43% this year, as the S&P 500 index gained 28%.
