    Default ABF Tops Estimates

    And where has MULER been? Hopefully enjoying a vacation somewhere.
    The Times Record: Business - Arkansas Best Tops Estimates

    By Ben Boulden
    Times Record • bboulden@swtimes.com | 0 comments

    Arkansas Best's future quarterly performance may look much like it did for the second quarter of 2010 - better but not profitable, if one analyst is right.

    ABF Freight System Inc., a less-than-truckload carrier, is the largest subsidiary of Fort Smith-based Arkansas Best Corp. Both the parent company and ABF on Wednesday reported second-quarter earnings.

    "We see several potential catalysts on the horizon, which, if any were to come to fruition, could have a material impact on the stock," Jack Waldo, Stephens Inc. research analyst, stated in a bulletin on Wednesday. "That said, we continue to believe ABFS is several quarters away from posting positive earnings and that the outcome of these potential catalysts largely is out of ABFS' hands."

    Slave, I was wondering what happened to Muler too! And I too hope he is having a great vacation. Thanks for posting the article. I mentioned in another ABF thread how Judy said they have not called anyone back yet. But we all know they have and are hiring in some areas too so I am a little surprised by the comment.

    Never fear, Muler is watching. He will return.

    I missed where she said we have not called anyone back. At our terminal we have called back everyone who wanted to come back plus they are reviewing YRC apps. We also have casauls working the dock. Everything is booming except for the office where 2 are laid off and another has been given notice because they are moving some of our work to Dayton under a white paper contract.

    Will this affect you or are you already affected by the lay off. It does seem though all of the drivers I have talked to sounds like everyone is pretty busy. I know we could use another guy but our young mgr thinks advertising by word of mouth is going to get someone, and hasn't worked yet.

    Kgee, read Slaves link up at the beginning of this thread. Judy says "we haven't increased our headcount." I too hope this change in office personal will not affect your job. I don't wish that on anybody! Good luck to you!

    I have been layed for 18 months. Only working basically as a casual for sick days & vacations. Now the person above me who has been given notice of layoff due to the work moving will have 1st call. I might really have to try to find another job.

    I'm so sorry to hear that Kgee. I truly hope there is a better outcome for you than to have to look elsewhere. I am glad that you are still at least getting to work casual for ABF at least for now. Something has just got to change for the better for all of us!
