UPDATE: Stephens Reiterates on Arkansas Best Corporation After Teamsters Reject Strike Authorization


In a report published Wednesday, Stephens analyst Brad Delco reiterated an Overweight rating on Arkansas Best Corporation (NASDAQ: ABFS), and raised the price target from $30.00 to $36.00.

In the report, Stephens noted, “We reiterate our Overweight rating and are raising our target to $36 (was $30) following notification that the union employees covered by the Central Region Local Cartage supplement voted ‘overwhelmingly to reject a strike authorization.' While the next steps toward finalizing the national agreement will be determined shortly, we think this eliminates a significant hurdle to completing the negotiating process. Once complete, we believe ABFS will be in a better position to compete with its non-unionized peers and will return the Company to a path of sustainable profitability.”

Arkansas Best Corporation closed on Tuesday at $27.60.
