Werner Enterprises, Inc., a transportation and logistics company, engages in hauling the truckload shipments of general commodities in interstate and intrastate commerce in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and internationally. The company has a P/E ratio of 22.9, equal to the average transportation industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 15.9.

TheStreet Ratings rates Werner as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins. You can view the full Werner Ratings Report.
