    No earnings warning

    I find it telling that unlike FDX, UPS did not issue an earnings warning prior to next Thursday's quarterly report. This is particularly true since FDX had enacted a $1.7B profit enhancement program yet still ran into trouble meeting their expectations. I suspect that the rejection by the EU of the TNT acquisition along with our prior lump payment into the pension fund might have helped this quarter. In any event, it would appear that the UPS management team has been performing better than their counterpart in a difficult domestic and global economy.

    BTW, note that for the first time in quite the differential in share price is comfortably under $10. Methinks that with the added attention given to blue chip stocks with consistently growing, S&P beating dividends, the 5X greater UPS dividend over FDX is finally being appreciated.

    Sentiment: Buy

    • Very true dude. I also think that the 2008 alliance with Alibaba in China will start to show results in that country, now that UPS has been licensed to operate domestically in China. Alibaba is the largest BtoB company in China and UPS is their logistics partner.
