It's just amazing how the media loves to attack UPS at the slightest provocation. My gut feeling is that the big money guys are going to drive down the stock price, then on the low they'll jump back in just in time to reap the anticipated increased dividend and ride the wave back up. We, the people, who invested in UPS for the long term years ago don't stand a chance against the greedy, instant gratification moguls. They control the market nowadays.
Those of us who invested in UPS years ago, (when it was privately held) saw slow, steady gains in Stock price and Dividend.
Once it went public, we (hopefully) learned to deal with a 'new reality', these investors are not "Partners", they want dollars today, not long term growth.
