Earlier, Goldman Sachs resumed coverage on J.B. Hunt Transport Services (NASDAQ: JBHT) with a Neutral. PT $58.00.

"We view JBHT as an attractive growth stock at the epicenter of the secular trend toward conversion of freight from the road to the rails via intermodal container traffic," the analyst comments. "Hunt is well positioned to post solid high-single-digit unit growth in its industry-leading intermodal division over the next 2-3 years. Nevertheless, valuations look elevated for what we believe will be decelerating earnings and operating income growth in 2013-2014 vs. the above-trend rates of growth reported following the recession (three-year EPS CAGR of 33%)."
