    • Greetings Mike. Good stuff on the analyst ratings and I think we'll see the $90's by fall. On another note, I'm really getting irritated when I read any story or other "analytical" piece that refers to UPS's P/E as 98.37. Right away it means they are simply regurgitating numbers without giving any consideration to the pension dynamic behind them. Clearly our historical P/E (and forward P/E which should be the issue here) ) is and almost always has been in the mid to high teens-teens. The latest Seeking Alpha or Motley Fool or whoever wrote the story once again misses that fact. They key should be operating margin where we have a more than double advantage and dividend payout where we're 5X the amount. At this point, their international and express "advantage" is killing FDX and apparently the USPS airlift contract will be even less profitable than before so we've lost nothing there. I'd rather see us.stick with small, rapidly accretive acquisitions in areas of growth. Once again, after viewing TNT's latest report thank God for the anachronistic and behind the 8-ball E.U.
