On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Overland Park-based less-than-truckload carrier's executives made appearances at transportation and logistics conferences and spoke with members of the financial services industry about the company's turnaround efforts. The appearances came on the heels of two straight profitable quarters and focused on YRC's confidence that better days lie ahead.

One analyst who was not at the conferences said the investment community generally welcomes such appearances and the opportunity to speak directly with executives. The appearances are a sign YRC feels good about its current position, and the appearances remove lingering uncertainty about performance. The analyst said companies with serious issues typically avoid communicating publicly until the issues are resolved.
