a forward PE of 18 is kind of high. i am impressed with UPS's run - however, i am thinking the reason has more to do with expected tax reform. i hope that pans out ...we'll be in for another rally if it does - hard to say how high stock will go - depending on type of tax cut corporates get, - UPS could have a further rally ahead of it. we are all taxed too much - corporations and individuals ...and the gov't spends/wastes too much of our money ...
So UPS loses a near 100 pound package in their distribution warehouse in Knoxville, TN. The item was not small either. When talking with the company I bought the item from they said that UPS has lost other very large items they have sent out. Now Fed Ex also has issues like this and I know they ship millions of packages each year, but a huge box being lost in a small city distribution center is very peculiar. I now have to wait two more weeks to get a replacement item
The UPS Store Celebrates 5,000th Retail Location Milestone. I thought the big lawsuit was going to cripple UPS and lots of stores were going out of business? The 5,000th The UPS Store just opened and Entrepreneur Magazine’s lists them as #4 on the 2017 Franchise 500 list.
FedEx missed and so will UPS. Air operations is just one factor into the problem.
Very savvy of FDX to announce the rate increase ahead of a big earnings miss. Something UPS could learn from.

investors have to consider the havoc caused by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. FedEx and UPS have stopped deliveries to major areas of Louisiana and Texas due to Harvey, and FedEx had to temporarily halt air deliveries to more than 350 cities and ground deliveries to ~490 cities,
stock price up nicely as of late ...market cap above $100M ..I don't know why the run-up, -I am pleasantly surprised..
Regarding the NY multi-employer pension issue, it would seem prudent for those voting on their future to look around at the impact of this scenario on others. It would seem a deal based upon present circumstances with the possibility of returning payments to previous levels makes sense. This issue is being faced by companies, municipalities, counties and states everywhere. This fund is not immune. It would seem quite risky to refuse the cutback putting the entire program in jeopardy. Sadly, earlier promises made to employees of all stripes are being impacted. It's a combination of excessive promises, the baby boomers, low returns on conservative investments (low inflation too), and longer lifespans. Thoughts?
Cramer's a hack feeding off all the little brains that listen to him!
Here's something to ponder. In Q3, we'll have had both Harvey and Irma issues that will completely void the revenue and earnings projections. Does that suggest that the share price will simply stay around $114 or something else? This of course doesn't even take into consideration the North Korea outcome.

Hopefully UPS will get the trucks and packages out of Florida before the storm hits. Not much that they ca do with the buildings.

Even though the market is in an uptrend, we're still seeing choppy action from the major averages and leading stocks. In addition to watching the Nasdaq, S&P 500 and Dow, it's also important to keep tabs on the leaders, as their action could signal what lies ahead for the broader market.
Dudesbag: Happy Founder's Day ! Don't look at MZOR today because it is up another 11.5 % !!! My back feels better already !!!!
Does anyone remember the class action suit against UPS with the padded dimensional weight charges. Welll here is another one that could cause UPS heartburn. I sent an overnight letter to myself and get hit with a $27 adjustment on a $43 letter. I prepared the label and my daughter took the package to UPS in Dallas. I was told by UPS customer service that because I did the label myself and did not ship it to myself from my location the $27 adjustment occurred. This means I cannot use my OWN account when I do business around the country as each shipment I use my own account would result in an adjustment. Now I have had packages destroyed by UPS and the claim approved (for $1700) but when my customer did not keep all of the broken glass from the scanner no payment was made. Anyone else have a refund approved but never paid. UPS has always had questionable business practices so I guess it comes down to do I want the pain UPS continues to supply or do I turn to the pain of FedEx or USPS.
Why do these analysts keep pounding UPS and promoting FDX? It never ends and sounds like favoritism. Perhaps I'm wrong, but it gets rather discouraging.time after time.
$2.14 X 686K ?? Did ya BUY at $2.12 as I advised?? When will Walmart announce Hydrogen Trucking? When will Amazon announce Hydrogen Trucking? What will TRIGGER the push for Q3 RUN ??
One day soon, we will OPEN above $2.25 and NEVER ever look back
China? Fedex? DHL? $UPS ? USPS ? Ground support UPS?
I was interested today to see an analyst predict how eliminating "The Last Mile" from FedEx and UPS could harm them going forward. As I recall, the last mile is what has driven UPS crazy and contributed to a reduction in EPS. Also, the analyst seems to forget that almost every retail outlet now sells online. It seems another mixed up person to me.
Stocks seems to have found it upward momentum
I'm very happy that I jumped in to UPS a few months ago. GLTA.
