    Trucking company J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. shares slid 1.3% in premarket trade Thursday, after the company offered guidance for the fourth quarter that fell short of estimates. The Lowell, Ark.-based company said it now expects fourth-quarter per-share earnings of 77 cents to 82 cents, below the FactSet consensus of $1.02. The company said it will book an 11 cents-a-share charge for a reserve on a cash advance for the purchase of new trailing equipment from a manufacturer that will not meet delivery, as well as a 10 cents-a-share increase in reserves for insurance claims. Revenue is expected to range from $1.9 billion to $2.0 billion, compared with a FactSet consensus of $1.9 billion. The company said it expects the tax reform enacted on Dec. 22 to create a one-time benefit for 2017. "We are in the process of understanding the widespread applicability of the Act to our financial statements but believe it will primarily affect our balance sheet accounts," it said.
