    Your seriously calling someone stupid? Do you even have a clue how to read those numbers that have been presented? Do you understand what OR is? Revenue per shipment increase or revenue per hundredweight? Do you think a few terminals bring the OI up 49%? You might want to take a class or three.

    BTW, did anyone notice YRC’s stock went below 3.00 a share around Christmas? This guy did. Guess what I bought a lot of for Christmas????

    I bought 8500 shares at 2.94. It’s almost made up for the bath I’ve taken in GE stock. I won’t trade till summer though. This is how I retired so early and bought nice stuff along the way. I wish I would have doubled my order then. I’ve bought more of it since then but at 5.46. Might still get more before it’s over with. Kicking myself for waiting so long. I had an alert set at 4.00 and ignored it.

    I looked hard, but got burned before the reverse splits, didn't have nerve.
    My friend has 1 (one) share with 13k invested it.

    I’ve had ups and downs. GE is a down right now but it’ll come back. I don’t buy expensive stock usually. Yellow was too cheap to pass up. They aren’t going anywhere. I’ve hit really big with them, Saia, and a few other transport companies. My wife likes financial and insurance companies.
    We got really lucky but I’ll take luck any day.

    You know what else Phil? If you would take all those terminals away and maybe even a few extra I bet everything would be lower too,,?

    I’m just going to let you prove my point sir, and you have in spades. I couldn’t ask for a finer example then you.

    And then you double down. This is awesome. You have done everyone a great service. Just when I thought your comments were useless they turn out golden. My hat is off to you sir.

    BTW, hope some people took the hint on YRCW. Up another buck a share in the past day. Math that.

    Wow. I was thanking you. You did a wonderful job proving my point in a way I couldn’t have paid someone to do. The only person that could make my point better is Ocasio-Cortez. Your in good company there brother.
