Old Dominion Freight (ODFL) ($37.53 vs. $35.10 on Jan. 16) -- has been downgraded to sell from buy and is below its year to date high at $37.95 set Feb. 1. My semiannual value level is $35.09 with a monthly pivot at $37.54. Time to book profits as this investment could get a fuel leak.
Union Pacific (UNP) ($141.69 vs. $131.44 on Jan. 16) -- has been downgraded to hold from buy and traded to an all-time high at $141.78 on Friday. My monthly value level is $134.01 with a weekly pivot at $141.59 and semiannual risky level at $143.14. Reduce positions on strength to the risky level.
