    By Vanina Egea - July 26, 2013 | Tickers: CHRW, EXPD, FWRD

    Other trees have taken a look at the logistics industry in the past, making grave assertions about its future. I find the logistics industry promising as the world economy continues to improve amid greater difficulties in Europe. Let us look at two well-developed international shipping firms like Expeditors International (NASDAQ: EXPD) and CH Robinson (NASDAQ: CHRW), and a regional company like Forward (NASDAQ: FWRD).

  • This Broker’s Pricing Power Is Diminishing

    By Mark Lin - July 18, 2013 | Tickers: CHRW, EXPD, UTIW

    Being a market leader in a loss-making business is a recipe for disaster. Having the largest market share in an industry with declining profitability is not that much better, with revenue growth being offset by margin compression. C.H. Robinson Worldwide (NASDAQ: CHRW), one of the largest third-party logistics companies globally -- handling shipments for more than 42,000 customers through a network of more than 275 offices -- is in such more »

    By Zain Abbas - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: EXPD, FDX, UPS

    No airfreight stock has been able to beat the market since the start of this year. United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) has seen the most appreciation of 18%, which is less than S&P 500's +20% performance for the year. This performance has not come as a surprise. Airfreight trends have decelerated throughout 2Q13, with particular weakness noted within the Asia region and on Asia-to-Europe trade routes.

    Moving products around the globe is an expensive proposition. Although many companies in the space spend heavily on their ships, trucks, and trains, Expeditors International (NASDAQ: EXPD) doesn't spend a dime on such things. That makes it an interesting play on an increasingly global economy.

  • Don't Buy a Hedge Fund, Be a Hedge Fund

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - May 29, 2013 | Tickers: BXP, CTL, EXPD

    Hedge funds are performing dismally, according to Barry Ritholtz's eye-opening opinion piece for The Washington Post. After the standard 2% annual fees and 20% they take out of their clients' profits, most hedge funds' rate of return seriously underperforms even a plain-vanilla S&P index fund. Why bother with a hedge fund, when you can keep that 22% for yourself by mimicking the moves of one bright and shining more »

    By Victor Selva - May 28, 2013 | Tickers: CHRW, EXPD, LSTR
