    UPS and FDX now both value plays?

    With FDX'x stagnating growth of late, at what point do they become considered a value play vs. a growth play? Historically, the market has always considered UPS to be the stoic, conservative, measured, slow to react giant invariably steps behind the more nimble FDX. Our advantages were a more established domestic footprint, strong European operations, a solid balance sheet and an above S&P dividend. Well, if we can complete a reasonable Q1then our growth prospects will not be much behind that of FDX. As we know, UPS pays a $.62 quarterly dividend while FDX shells out a paltry $.14 (and for less than 1/3 the # of shares). But getting back to my tag line- if both companies are morphing into the value arena, UPS with the dominant dividend is the better selection.

    Sentiment: Buy
