    Thanks, Dude, I knew you'd come up with an intelligent explanation. Being a novice at investing, it's reassuring to glean logical advice from a seasoned investor. Thanks. Of course, at my age, patience may not be an option; however, there's always the children ....LOL.

    UPS doesn't stand a chance with analysts, media and DC. Quarterly Analyst phone conferences with officers are always negative, even when UPS presents numbers above expectations. It's so obvious UPS is not held in high esteem by Wall Street or even DC. Just watch and see what happens to FDX regarding the shipment of drugs. I'm sure they will come up smelling like roses. I remember the good old days before 1998 and the IPO. That happy marriage certainly didn't last long. The UPS bashing never ends.

    I had exactly the opposite experience. In May I had a package that was due on a certain date, but hadn't been delivered by late afternoon. I called UPS in my area and said I needed the package that day. The gentleman called me back within one hour, told me where I could meet the truck and retrieve my package. Kudos to the employee for making the extra effort. Don't condemn a company for one unfortunate incident.
