10:37 EDTPCAR, CMI, VOLVYCummins rises after firm starts coverage with Buy rating
Shares of Cummins (CMI) are outperforming the market after research firm Argus initiated coverage of the truck engine maker with a Buy rating in a note to investors earlier today.

The company's U.S. business should benefit from steady increases in engine sales this year, while its distribution unit should grow as a result of acquisitions, the firm predicted. It set a $162 price target on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Cummins rose $3.40, or 2.3%, to $149.50. Meanwhile, truck maker PACCAR (PCAR) gained 1.75% to $67.75.

12:53 EDTCMI, PCARCitigroup sees truck carrier stocks poised to outperform
With the U.S. economy growing quickly, the stocks of truck carriers are likely to outperform the S&P 500, Citigroup believes. WHAT'S NEW: Truck transportation prices and truck carrier stocks "respond most directly to economic growth," Citigroup analyst Christian Wetherbee wrote in a note to investors today. After carriers' truckload rates rose 4% last year, the rates should rise by a similar amount this year, Wetherbee predicted. Economic growth, along with the difficulties the carriers are experiencing with recruiting drivers, should be supportive of additional rate increases, the analyst stated. Wetherbee warned that the stocks of truck builders usually underperform during periods such as the current one, when a large amounts of U.S. class 8 trucks are being built. Consequently, truck carrier stocks present investors with an opportunity, while investors should be cautious on truck builders and parts suppliers, he wrote. Among truck carriers, Swift (SWFT) is particularly attractive, since it has underperformed its peers over the last year, Wetherbee stated. Additionally, the company's results appear likely to at least meet consensus estimates, the analyst predicted. He also kept a Buy rating on another truck carrier, Knight Transportation (KNX) and maintained a Buy rating on Cummins (CMI), which builds truck engines. The analyst kept a Hold rating on truck builder PACCAR (PCAR). OTHERS TO WATCH: Navistar (NAV) builds trucks and Celadon (CGI) is another truck carrier. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Swift rose 1%, Knight Transportation gained 1.3%, Cummins added 0.7%, and PACCAR lost 0.5%.
