Gas is going to have zero value according to Wall St. pundits. It cost no money to dig it from the ground or store it in the tanks. It costs no money to refine it too! Few years back, it was Chinese and Indians consuming too much of it to justify a 145/barrel? I am puzzled by how easily we get fooled by these market speculators
The reason is to educate future buyers. Your goal is stay with UPS no matter whether it makes money or not. That is a bad investment philosophy!
The point is USPS is there and has been eating UPS's lunch. It has no leverage to increase its price and that is a bad news for a company. No growth for last two decades and you are very satisfied? I am troubled with such investor mentality.
So, you are satisfied with 40% gain in 18 years? Without USPS, UPS will jack up the price in a big way. Who wants that?
I hold some 50 stocks in my portfolio. Why can't I pass my opinion about UPS? What so holy about its business margin. It is not capturing more market from USPS, fedex or bankrupt DHL. I choose USPS for its price over UPS. Does not that ring any bell to you? No wonder, the stock has not been performing poorly for last few years. Why are you so sensitive to the truth?
Yes, USPS is very efficient with their tracking numbers. All of my packages landed to their right owners. UPS got a huge problem with their pricing. Only if USPS dies, UPS can do better. If I am not choosing them for service, why do you think others would do? Who would voluntarily spend extra cash for shipping?
This is the only reason why I would not buy UPS stock. This would not make money unless it gives special discounts to its clients.
You are wrong! Check with your local post office for fixed price boxes. They are truly god's gift. Just sent a heavy 8lb cable cutter for 12 dollars.
I am Ebay seller and I would never dare to use UPS triple price for shipping my items. Even UPS worker felt sorry for their price. Please do your home work before you ask for charity for UPS service. You either compete head on with USPS beast or accept the defeat. If Boeing can compete with subsidized Airbus, why not UPS? Not that BA does not get any indirect subsidy from government. UPS too gets indirect benefits from big mamma.
A criminal activity that needs to be punishable with some penalties and jail time. Sec should investigate and find out who made money on false rumor.
Bud, you have already lost all your credibility. You are not a short. You are basically a liar posing as a short. Give it up!
