Its recent acquistion of MXD will give it access to the growing e-commerce sector, thus alleviating the losses typically suffered by the retail industry. Ryder’s network of 121 e-commerce hubs gives it access to 95% of US and Canada within a 2-day delivery timeframe.
Historically, Ryder’s earnings reports tended to negatively affect stock price. Our recommendation is to hold until immediately after the earning report, buying at an even greater discount with long-term growth through acquisition and COOP catalysts.
