    Is FDX insane?

    An article in Bloomberg Business talks about the possibility that UPS might not match the FDX dimensional shipping charge move. Basically it argues the point that if companies feel they're being charged too much, they look for their own solutions. I think FDX is running scared about how to meet future expectations. What is most preposterous is they just gutted their express workforce as part of their cost efficiency action plan. They also went on their largest share buyback spree in their history (at inflated prices). Now they've moved on to putting the squeeze on their ground customers. They've already been screwing the independent contractors who make up their home delivery service for years. Hopefully, any loss in volume by t this new pricing mode doesn't hurt these IC's any further. My view is I hope UPS does not go along with the FDX master plan and gains some business. BTW, the dividend should be announced today, right?

    Amazon is now offering Sunday delivery thru a Post Office partnership in 17 major cities for certain products. The pricing is very reasonable. After initial success, they expanded the program. No doubt, their long-range plan is to add to their own network. It sure seems the FDX pan to employ wide scale dimensional shipping charge policy in 2015 is questionable at best. I for one hope UPS choose not to follow suit.

    Perhaps simple logic explains share price
