    FDX reports next week....thoughts?

    Analysts expect $1.51 up from $1.45 a year ago. Last year they surprised by a nickel. 90 days ago analysts were looking for $1.59 so expectations have been dropping. If one reads the "UPS Facing Headwinds" story, the same goes for FDX as well. Fuel costs higher, growth moderate at best and customers choosing lower cost shipping mode options. Of course, for our share value I hope the meet or beat the $1.51 and $11B expectations.

    • FDX is up over 1% the day before their report. They're now near the $111 mark. Curious as their EPS estimates have been dropping about a dime in recent weeks and there are so many reasons to expect another tepid report such as fuel costs, customers utilizing less than premium services, slow domestic and international growth and pension/benefits issues. As we all know, it's much easier to hit the EPS via share buybacks and such but if they can surpass the expected $11B revenue mark that would be saying something. I guess we'll see.....

    • If they go up, UPS goes down
      If they go down, UPS goes down.
      It's a no win.
