Seeking Alpha: Old Dominion Isn't Done Yet

Earlier this year, I thought the Street's reaction Old Dominion's (ODFL) fourth quarter results offered investors a good opportunity to buy shares in this high-quality, growing trucking company. Since then, the shares are up about 30% - more than doubling the return of the S&P 500. Although that performance is more mixed relative to other trucking companies- better than Con-Way (CNW), but inferior to Arkansas Best (ABFS), YRC Worldwide (YRCW), and Saia (SAIA) - Arkansas Best and YRC have benefited from a major catch-up trade and still notably lag Old Dominion on a two-year comparison.

While valuation on the shares has moved up, I don't think the opportunity is over for Old Dominion or its shareholders. The company continues to gain share in the less-than-truckload industry, and I believe the company's combination of service quality, organic growth potential, and strong margin leverage can continue to deliver good returns.
