7. Swift Transportation (SWFT) operates as a truckload carrier in North America, providing rail intermodal, freight brokerage services, and third-party logistics operations. The company handles short-to-medium-haul traffic lanes around its terminals.

For the fourth quarter of 2010, the company reported $48.31 million net loss, or 66 cents per share, as against a net loss of $357.13 million in the year-ago quarter. Revenue grew to $780.43 million from $668.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. For full-year 2010, net loss more than doubled to $125.41 million, or $1.98 per share. Revenue for 2010 advanced 14% to $2.93 billion.

Swift Transportation is seeking to refinance $1.01 billion loan with price of 350 bps more than the London interbank rate. Sources with knowledge of the refinancing program say investors would be offered a one-year soft-call protection of $1.01, meaning Swift would have to pay 1-cent premium over face value to refinance the debt in the first year.

Of the 15 analysts covering the stock, 80% recommend a buy while the remaining suggest a hold. There are no sell ratings on the stock. Analysts polled by Bloomberg expect the stock to gain an average 17.4% from current levels to $17.7 over the next 12 months.
