Werner Enterprises (WERN - Free Report) is a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and sports a clean slate of A's for the Zacks Style Scores.  With all that going for it, you should not be surprised that I picked it as the Bull of the Day.

Valuation

The best way to show the valuation for WERN is to look at the same table that I generally go to when I look at any stock.  Here is what I see:

Yes the PE is a little above the industry average, but the price to book and price to sales multiples are below the industry average.   The company is slated to grow earnings by 13% this year, and that is more than triple the industry average.

Will You Make a Fortune on the Shift to Electric Cars?

Here's another stock idea to consider. Much like petroleum 150 years ago, lithium power may soon shake the world, creating millionaires and reshaping geo-politics. Soon electric vehicles (EVs) may be cheaper than gas guzzlers. Some are already reaching 265 miles on a single charge. With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, one company stands out as the #1 stock to buy according to Zacks research.

It's not the one you think.
