    Ryder reports

    This is a bit troubling. Ryder beat EPS expectations by 3 cents, just missed revenue ($1.56B vs $1.58 expectation) and they re-affirmed going forward. Clearly, the revenue metric is of great importance. It's worth noting that Ryder's dividend is 2.2% vs. UPS's 3%. Even with service selection towards less profitable modes, one would think that the increased shipping rates and slight increase in fuel surcharges over last year should help us meet or barely beat revenue expectations. Let's hope...

      • Here's an example of an unpredictable market response. Yesterday, Ryder issued a solid report beating top line and slightly missing revenues. More importantly, they re-affirmed going forward expectations in a difficult market. Despite that news yesterday, they were down over 7%. Today they are up over 7% or basically right back where they started. So, one would think that if we meet or beat both EPS and revenue numbers AND AFFIRM OUR GOING FORWARD ADVICE we should avoid that circumstance. This would particularly be true since FDX had a weak report just last month. For historical reference, we missed EPS by 2 cents Q1 2012 (not sure about revenue #) and dropped 1.75% the day of the report. We have missed EPS in 3 of the last 4 quarters so a beat would indicate solid management and employee performance.

      • Same kind of move I expect here around the 8% mark
