Here's the link:http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Heartland-Express-Inc-Reports-...• Missed estimates on revenue, beat on EPS;• Operating revenue up 7.7%;• Net income up 35%;• Fuel surcharges up up 50%;• Demand up thanks to capacity;• Negative impacts by tight driver availability and escalating fuel prices;• Pool of qualified drivers shrinking; presenting challenges;• 84.7% of the company's fleet 2010 models and newer;• 2Q marked completion of the installation of PeopleNet electronic on-board recorders for entire fleet; • The Company ended the quarter with cash, equivalents,and investments totaling $218.5 million, an $8.7 million increase from the $209.8 million a year ago;• Declared dividend of $0.02 per share during the quarter.All in all good stuff. The stock is selling off a bit today I bet more due to concerns of fuel, driver and uncertain short-term outlook, along with the fact that they did miss on revnenue. No worries here though. I like this one for the long-haul and think it'll continue to do well. I would also never rule out adding to this one if the price became too irresistable.Foolishly,Jason
