I just got wind of it today, seeing it on an "upgrade" listing by accident ..... will be looking over the next few days and keep you posted.
I do know that it is a good truck line, you'll note that their drivers are very professional, not the "hot dogs" you see so often on the road. I suspect that carries forward into a dependability factor.
Will do a little research and post again...

Looks like you were right. Now that cyclicals have made a convincing run - how is all this stuff they are supposed to produce going to get to its destination? Shipping... The transports are showing signs of life (this one was up on a down day...)

This stock has options... so a way to get leverage out of this stock is

short the nov 25 puts for nearly 6

and buy the nov 22.5 calls for around 3.5
http://cboe.pcquote.com/cgi-bin/cboeget.exe?TICKER=.JHQKX

The downside of this position is you will end up buying the stock for 25 (minus the 6 premium for a total of 19) and the calls might end up worthless. The upside is you will have a synthetic JBHT for a cost of $-2.00

---------
Being a novice investor, I'm trying to follow the philosophy of investing companies I know something about, or do business with. I worked for JBHT for five years, and was never a stockholder. They were, however, one of my first choices for an investment now. My reasoning is simply this: They are a very strong company, they treat their employees well (now), and the stock is currently very, very low. I see them rising in the future.

But beware, transportation in general is a business with very thin (read miniscule) margins. Fuel price increases, for instance, can devastate the company in a short time.
