J.B. Hunt (JBHT, $135.88) shares get price target hikes

JB Hunt Transport Services  got price target hikes from at least two analysts .

Amit Mehrotra of Deutsche Bank upgraded rating on the trucking company’s stock to hold from sell. The analyst raised  his price target to $140 from $98. In a commentary cited by Bloomberg, Mehrotra said that a substantial net decrease of truckload capacity is coming in coming quarters, and that will create an upward pressure on volume and pricing, along with (what he perceives to be) a clear cyclical rebound. He also mentioned that low interest rates, limited capital expenditures and an improving growth outlook provide a “potent backdrop for high multiples” .

Raymond James analyst Patrick Tyler Brown affirmed his outperform rating, and raised his price target to $145 from $140. Brown said  JB Hunt should benefit from a “clearly tightening truck market,” according to Bloomberg.

According to Tickeron, JBHT in Uptrend: 50-day Moving Average crossed above 200-day Moving Average on June 24, 2020

A buy signal is indicated by this change in price, due to the trend repositioning higher. In 2 of 3 cases where JBHT's 50-day Moving Average crossed above its 200-day Moving Average, its price rose further within the subsequent month. The odds of a continued Uptrend are 67%.
