    • Transportation

      The Transportation Team includes Jonathan Chappell, who covers surface, airfreight and marine transportation. Jon's broad-based coverage focuses on the main segments of freight transportation, including railroads, airfreight, trucking and logistics, as well as commodity-based shipping stocks. Jon's top-down macro views are helped by collaborative efforts with Evercore ISI's macro research products—especially the proprietary Surveys Team. Combining his insights with detailed financial modeling and strong access to management teams and industry experts, Jon forms long-term investment theses as well as shorter-term trading calls, taking advantage of the inherent cyclicality of his sectors.

Duane was ranked #3 in Institutional Investor‘s survey in 2020 and 2021 in the airlines category. In 2022, he launched coverage of lodging stocks (asset-light brands and lodging REITS), as he sees similar recovery demand drivers such as travel restrictions easing, corporate & group travel recovery, and consumer preference for experiences.
