2019-08-20 | Welcome! Today we compared how two different stocks in the Trucking Freight/Courier Services industry are trading: Saia, Inc. and Landstar System, Inc.. While these two companies may have very different market capitalizations and balance sheets, they are worth comparing given how they are in the same sector. Below you’ll see how the different technical indicators differ between these two stocks, and we’ll also show what Trading View thinks of them based on the technical analysis. But before we get ahead of ourselves, please note that this is technical analysis only (ie. analyzing how these companies are trading, not digging into the company fundamentals), and therefore you should not rely only on this to guide you on whether you should buy or sell anything – take it with a grain of salt only, and pay attention to the disclaimer below. With that said, many traders find value in technical analysis and others even swear by it, so if that is you, I hope my analysis will be of use to you. Let’s get to it…
