C.H. Robinson reported better-than-expected earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2018. Moreover, the top- and bottom lines improved year over year driven by favorable pricing across most transportation product lines and low tax rates. Efforts to reward its shareholders in the form of dividends and share buybacks are impressive. In December 2018, the company increased its quarterly dividend payout by 9% to 50 cents per share. Improvement in operating ratio is also a positive. Also, upbeat freight demand and reduced tax rates have proved to be favorable for the company. However, the company is struggling with high operating expenses. The company's high debt levels are another cause for concern. In fact, shares of the company have declined more than 9% in the past six months.
