12:33 EDTMSU.S. banks could return 20% or more, Barron's says
The banking sector looks like "one of the best bargains in the market," Barron's contends in a cover story. Names such as Citi (C), JPMorgan (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), Wells Fargo (WFC), Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), BB&T (BBT), PNC Financial (PNC), SunTrust (STI) and U.S. Bancorp (USB) are showing healthy balance sheets and could offer "at least" 20% upside, the publication argues, adding that the industry's exposure to the energy sector "looks manageable" given information offered in recent earnings reports and conference calls.

14:00 EDTHUBGSwift spikes after reporting Q4 earnings beat
Shares of trucking company Swift (SWFT) are rallying after reporting better-than-expected quarterly earnings on Monday evening. WHAT'S NEW: Swift reported fourth quarter earnings per share of 53c on revenue of $1.09B. Analysts were anticipating Q4 EPS of 47c on revenue of $1.12B. With its Q4 financial results, the company guided for fiscal 2016 EPS of $1.50-$1.60 against analyst estimates of $1.55. Swift attributed the earnings beat to strong operational execution, declining fuel prices, gains on equipment sales, and a better than anticipated tax rate. "We were able to generate year-over-year rate increases in our three largest reportable segments, despite difficult comparison quarters. Investments in our fleet technology are also beginning to pay off, with improved accident and workers' compensation trends, driver retention, and fuel efficiency in the quarter. We also realized improvements in our Intermodal container turns," the company said in a letter to investors. WHAT'S NOTABLE. In late September, the company slashed it fiscal 2015 EPS view to $1.43-$1.52 from $1.64-$1.74. At the time, the company blamed its reduced view, in part, on the additional carrying expense associated with the large volume of new tractors received late in the second quarter due to delivery delays, as well as a reduction in expected volumes of seasonal project business in Q4 of 2015 due to customers' recent logistical changes. A month later, with its third quarter results, the trucking company noted that as it moved into Q4, it would focus on improving utilization of its fleet. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Swift lost about 50% of their value in 2015 and closed Monday at $13.67. In Tuesday afternoon trading, shares of Swift are up over 19% to $16.31. OTHERS TO WATCH: Shares of other companies in the truck and logistics space are also up, including JB Hunt (JBHT), Hub Group (HUBG), Landstar System (LSTR), and Werner Enterprises (WERN).
