Over the last year, shares of FedEx (NYSE:FDX) are down nearly 40%, opening for trade June 7 near $157 each. The reason can be summed up in one word: Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN).Source: Shutterstock The growth of what is now the country's second-leading retailer (after Walmart (NYSE:WMT)) continues to make traders quake in their blue suede shoes. (That's your reminder that FedEx is based in Memphis.)You can buy FedEx today for less than 12 times last year's earnings and get a $2.60 per share dividend that yields 1.69%. The market cap is now $41 billion, against 2018 revenue of $65.5 billion.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsYou may have to wait for the market to wake up, but your patience should be rewarded. FDX Stock Is Still GrowingDespite any appearance to the contrary, FedEx continues to grow.FedEx is due to report its fourth quarter on June 25. Analysts are expecting earnings of $4.89 per share on revenue of $18.04 billion. * 7 S&P 500 Dividend Stocks to Buy at Least Yielding 3% That would put revenue for the full year at $69 billion, about $4 billion ahead of last year. It would more than cover the dividend and could spark a hike.Investors were spooked by a miss on the third quarter, earnings falling 7 cents short of estimates at $3.03 per share. CEO Fred Smith admitted they were below expectations, blaming the company's investments in network infrastructure and automation.He also could have blamed TNT Express, acquired for $4.8 billion in 2016. Integration costs on the European-based company were 21 cents per share. Matching Amazon StockBut the stock has since fallen below the level it was at after those earnings came out.The reason for that is Amazon, which continues to make headlines with things like drone delivery, its own hub airport in Kentucky, along with expansions in Rockford, Illinois, and Lakeland, Florida ,There's one thing wrong with this picture, as it relates to FedEx. That is, Amazon infrastructure serves AMZN stock, and its re-sellers. Amazon may have half the e-commerce market, but that still leaves half that's not Amazon, and there is more to delivery than e-commerce.It is more reasonable to be concerned about whether the trade war will kick FedEx out of China, or the cost of expanding ground service, or how managers might react to the end of cash bonuses.If anyone should worry about Amazon, and its knock-on effects in the delivery business, it should be the U.S. Postal Service. They just lost FedEx' SmartPost business. FedEx' expansion of Ground delivery to Sunday, matching Amazon, means it's entering a niche that had been keeping the USPS competitive.FedEx is also working closely with Amazon rivals like Walmart and Walgreens (NYSE:WBA) on next-day delivery. It's even turning Target (NYSE:TGT) stores into local shipment hubs, matching a deal Amazon recently signed with Kohl's (NYSE:KSS).Wherever Amazon innovates in delivery, FedEx does too, keeping its service competitive on behalf of all of Amazon's competitors. Economically it's a win-win. The Bottom LineBecause Amazon's recent innovations are all on the fast side of delivery, long considered FedEx' niche, the impact on FedEx stock has been twice what it was on that of rival UPS (NYSE:UPS), down 15% over the last year.Trade war fears have exacerbated that fear.As the old saying goes, when the going gets tough the tough get going. That doesn't mean the tough abandon the field. It means they compete harder. That's what FedEx is doing, and the whole economy is the beneficiary.At its current levels, given its continuing profitability and investments in the business, it's hard to see FedEx as anything but a buy for a long-term investor.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

In the second half of April, I wrote about the waning sentiment toward CVS Health (NYSE:CVS). On the surface, CVS stock has the necessary components to move higher. Obviously, the company is in the business of health care, which is typically not an optional endeavor for people. Second, CVS offers diverse coverage in this segment with its pharmacy benefit manager business.Source: Mike Mozart via FlickrAt the same time, CVS Health stock has components that don't favor a higher market value. One of those anchors is debt. At nearly $68 billion from its last quarterly report, that's a hefty load. Plus, health care represents a lucrative sector for companies desperate to expand beyond their boundaries. While I wouldn't characterize Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) as desperate, Jeff Bezos and friends are certainly willing to disrupt this segment.As a result, CVS stock has a credibility dilemma that the markets don't feel the underlying organization has effectively addressed. While I adopted the cautiously optimistic approach to the retail-pharmacy giant, shares have moved like I reasonably expected. This is a name that will require a strong stomach and significant patience, as at yesterday's $53.17 close, the shares are less than 3% off the low-end of their 52-week range.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 6 Big Dividend Stocks to Buy as Yields Plunge But if that's you, I think CVS Health stock provides an interesting platform. Here are three reasons why: Automation Can't Touch CVS StockFor many folks, especially in the rust belt of America, automation is a scary word. In fact, it's the central catalyst that has sparked political firebrand Andrew Yang's presidential campaign. Consistently, Yang argues that we're in the midst of a fourth industrial revolution that will displace millions of workers.Furthermore, the Democratic candidate points the finger at Amazon. While the e-commerce giant is the internet age's flagship success story, it also disrupted small businesses throughout the country. The fear is that CVS stock, as part of the broader retail-investment landscape, will face automation at some point.I don't think that will happen. I'll go out on a limb and say that it will never happen. This forecast bodes well for CVS Health stock, if I'm right.Let me hedge that by saying this: automation will certainly replace or substantially modify health care's administrative components. I'm not breaking new ground with this statement because it's already happening.But the medical and pharmaceutical industries involve variances. We still don't know much about the human body and its reaction to outside stimuli. That's obvious when you consider the raging opioid crisis.More critically, humans can make executive decisions that save lives. Perhaps a patient's allergy history makes a particular drug unsafe, or an obviously pregnant patient may have complications from an apparently mistaken prescription: artificial intelligence is so far unable to make such dynamic decisions. However, they're a routine part of the current pharmacy life. Politics Offer a Tailwind for CVS Health StockLike most Americans, I'm incredibly confused about the healthcare system. As a contrarian, I consider that a blessing. I really don't want to be an expert on this subject because it probably means I'm not doing too well.That said, what I do know about health care in America is that it's outrageously expensive. Becoming a medical doctor used to be a noble profession. Now, it merely seems like a pathway to riches. I love what Yang has to say about this topic: we spend the most on healthcare yet receive the worst results.You don't have to pull up wonky charts and graphs to understand the problem. As I mentioned in my last article about CVS stock, hundreds of thousands of Americans travel to Mexico each year to receive significant discounts on prescription drugs.That right there proves we have a disconnect in the system: how can patients who are only separated by arbitrary borders pay radically different drug prices? Clearly, the drugs themselves aren't that expensive to produce. Instead, we have bloated bureaucracies that have exponentially skyrocketed healthcare costs to untenable levels for many families.Fortunately, it appears Washington finally has the political will to address this escalating crisis. In the long run, I see this dynamic as a net positive for CVS stock. Theoretically, the pharmacy will gain business that's currently going off the books to Mexico. Additionally, millions of patients will have access to reasonable healthcare costs, eliminating the incentive to skimp on medication. CVS Offers a Trusted Brand NameApparently, it's in vogue to go bearish on CVS Health stock and similar names like Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA). With disruptive competitors lurking in the shadows, there doesn't seem to be much room in this segment. * The 10 Best Stocks for 2019 -- So Far But as much as I like Amazon and its ilk, I'm not sure if they can disrupt health care like they have other industries. The biggest difference I see is that health care is obviously intimate and personal. As such, people will not always make economically rational decisions here.For instance, if you're in the market for LASIK eye surgery, price isn't the deciding factor. Instead, it's skill and a very long track record of success. Your vision is an attribute that is truly priceless. You're not going to trust your eyes to a doctor with a degree from Trump University.In the same framework, CVS ranks as one of Fortune's "World's Most Admired Companies." I'm not surprised. Whenever I have medicinal needs, I run to CVS, as do millions of others. They know what they're doing. The company also hires many of the best medical professionals.Amazon? I like them for purchasing books, clothes, and electronic devices. But I'll pass on their drugs. As long as overall costs are reasonable, the track record for CVS stands above the rest.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
