Investopedia: Is Slowing Demand Just A Speed Bump For Old Dominion?
There are plenty of articles out there declaring the doom of trucking,
as railroads and intermodal shipping take away the industry's lunch
money (I should know, as I've written some of them). However it's
important to remember at least two points. First, not all trucking is
the same. Second, not all trucking companies are the same. Old Dominion (Nasdaq:ODFL)
continues to demonstrate its credentials for "best trucking company in
the biz," but investors could get another chance with this stock if
economic uncertainties undermine demand in the fourth quarter.
