Ryder is in a storm. The trucking company, Ryder System (R ) is down 10% to a six month low after missing earnings estimates. Revenues rose 7.3% year/year to $1.75 billion.

The company is reducing their full-year earnings forecast due to slowing demand for commercial rentals which is expected to last for the balance of the year.
