While he admitted that Cummins (CMI) is one of his favorite trucking stocks, and a holding in AAP, Paccar is "every bit" as enticing at current levels.
Although many of its peers have started moving higher, Paccar has lagged the group. Cramer added that the company's fundamentals are very strong. For this reason, the stock should be trading at $70, he said.
Regarding railroad stocks, he suggested that coal prices would need to continue moving higher in order for the rail stocks to do so as well.The one exception he made was for CSX Corp. (CSX - Get Report), which is undervalued compared to its peers and could move to $30, he said. Cramer concluded that the trucking industry is "ready to roll," and the stocks can enjoy multi-month runs to the upside.
