Investigate the different business models and strategies for UPS and FedEx, two companies that seemingly compete for the same delivery business.
UPS (UPS) doesn't possess the right combination of the two key ingredients for a likely earnings beat in its upcoming report. Get prepared with the key expectations.
High capital expenditures might hurt UPS' Q1 earnings. However, solid e-commerce growth and a strong segmental performance are likely to boost results.
Robust revenues across majority of Kansas City Southern's (KSU) segments and a solid operational efficiency boost its Q1 results.
CSX posts better-than-expected results in the first quarter of 2019 on the back of merchandise volume expansion, pricing gains and lower costs.
ATLANTA, April 15, 2019 -- UPS (NYSE:UPS) will announce its 2019 first-quarter results on Thursday, April 25, 2019, at approximately 7 a.m. Eastern Time. At 8:30 a.m. ET, UPS.
UPS Capital, a subsidiary of UPS (UPS), announced today the integration of its suite of shipping insurance APIs into AscendTMS, helping provide access to transactional insurance coverage for small and mid-size shippers. “Our goal is to provide businesses a frictionless, digital experience for obtaining protection against loss and damage to their shipments and filing claims,” said Mark Robinson, president of UPS Capital. While the vast majority of shipments move without issue, a recent study commissioned by UPS Capital revealed that 92% of shippers experience some type of loss, damage or delay each year1. Offering transactional shipment insurance across a variety of transportation modes can help mitigate the financial risks of day-to-day supply chain incidents.
Unionized UPS Inc. (NYSE: UPS) workers in New York City and western Pennsylvania have ratified their respective supplemental agreements to the national contract between UPS and the Teamsters union, bringing the five-year master agreement closer to full implementation. The actions disclosed yesterday by Local 804 in Long Island City, Queens, and by Locals 249 in Pittsburgh and Local 30 in New Stanton, about 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, leave just one local, Local 243 in Detroit, yet to ratify its rider. The national contract cannot be implemented until all UPS locals ratify their respective supplements and riders.
To receive further updates on this United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS) trade as well as an alert when it's time to take profits, sign up for a risk-free trial of Strategic Trader today.We are recommending a bullish position on United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS). Labor and consumer spending are connected, and both have been maintaining positive trends over the last quarter. This should be good for consumption, even if business spending is flat.We think there are signs that traders are discounting UPS's value because of last month's lackluster earnings report from FedEx (NYSE:FDX). A similar scenario played out last quarter and led to a strong bullish move just prior to and after UPS's earnings were reported in January.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips UPS Has a Different Market from FDXAt first it may seem like the two companies are clones. It makes sense to make estimates about UPS based on FDX's performance. In fact, UPS and FDX have a lot of overlaps, but each dominates in a different part of the delivery industry. FDX focuses on air services and overnight delivery targeted at business (where spending has been flat). UPS is more of a common carrier with a focus on small package delivery.The U.S. economy is largely driven by consumer spending, so UPS's dominant position in package delivery means they grow with hiring, spending and wages. Although wages have also languished, hiring and consumer spending have continued to be very strong. Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN)'s sales growth (assisted by UPS's delivery expertise) has been incredible. We expect investors to start pricing those facts into UPS's share price as we get closer to earnings later this month. Breaking Above Resistance at $112UPS broke above resistance (completing a somewhat choppy inverse "head-and-shoulders" pattern) with the rest of the market on April 1. Since then, the stock has pulled back a little.Daily Chart of United Parcel Service (UPS) -- Chart Source: TradingViewWe expect old resistance at $112 to become new support, and we think it will hold as investors price in a surprise for earnings later this month. We recommend selling puts on UPS now that the stock has come back down a bit. If the stock stays above support, we could get to keep the full premium from this trade.To find out which UPS puts we're selling -- and to get access to our full portfolio of income-generating trades -- consider signing up for risk-free trial subscription to Strategic Trader today.

According to Rob Martinez, CEO of parcel consultancy Shipware, LLC, employees in UPS' revenue management operations, the group that along with its executive leadership manages the company's pricing initiatives, are currently being trained on the new structure. The result, he explained, has been both a boost in density and a reduction in the company's unit costs as more packages move through a fixed-cost infrastructure. The savings are likely to be passed on to shippers in the form of lower rates, although some shippers may see rate increases if the company determines that it is not being properly compensated for its true cost to serve, Martinez added.

Analysts are amazed that Kohl's (NYSE:KSS) is surviving in the age of Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN). But that doesn't mean everyone should be investing in KSS stock.Source: Hailey Pollard via FlickrThere are reasons to praise KSS CEO Michelle Gass and say she's worth her $12.3 million pay package. But her success is more a reflection of her competitors' failures than anything else. * 7 High-Risk Stocks With Big Potential Rewards Everyone's crowing about the company's performance in fiscal 2019, but it showed almost no growth, and reported less net income than in fiscal 2018. Kohl's did cover the $2.68 per share dividend of KSS stock (which was hiked 10% from the previous year) two times over with its earnings, and KSS stock has a handsome yield of 3.78%.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut repeating the trick will be a struggle, and the dividend is the only reason to like KSS stock. Kohl's SuccessGass is a former chief of staff at Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX), and mother of the "Frappuccino," which gets the company $3-$5 for what's basically coffee, milk and sugar. She has been with Kohl's since 2013 and became CEO last year.She is already taking bows.Her success starts with Amazon. People can return the products they bought on AMZN at Kohl's stores, which is great when there's no UPS (NYSE:UPS) stores around. In some Kohl's stores, consumers can buy Amazon merchandise, like Kindle readers.Then there's the downsizing of the stores, a move whose success is uncertain. Parts of ten Kohl's locations will be given to Planet Fitness (NASDAQ:PLNT), and that number could be increased in the future. Parts of Kohl's stores have become Under Armour (NYSE:UAA) outlets.The idea is to make Kohl's a place that suburban women visit regularly. Increase visits and you increase sales. Gass has recognized that clothing is not a destination, that people don't shop as much as buy, that convenience at least gives her a shot at keeping customers.But this is not a strategy of strength. It's built on weakness. Kohl's can no more make it on its own than Penney's can. KSS has too much real estate. The sharing is mainly a way of paring back its commitment to space without closing outlets. Can Kohl's Grow?The question investors should be asking is whether Kohl's can use this strategy to grow.It depends on what you want to grow.Gass was lucky to inherit a retailer with a strong balance sheet, and she has made the balance sheet stronger, cutting Kohl's long-term debt from nearly $2.8 billion to $1.86 billion. This means the company's operating-cash flow, which came in at $2.1 billion last year, can support the dividend and repurchase KSS stock , making its earnings look better. The Bottom Line on KSS StockMichelle Gass is a good retailer, but she"s a better self-promoter. The strategy she has chosen for Kohl's has led to short-term success, but she has yet to demonstrate that it will enable KSS to grow.KSS stock is still a name that investors buy for income. They can buy the dividend but, unlike with some stocks, they shouldn't just sit on it. KSS is navigating through stormy retail seas, and while it's coping with the waves right now, uncertainty is everywhere in retail.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

Until early March, the transportation sector as measured via the SPDR S TR/S&P TRANSN (NYSEARCA:XTN) exchange-traded fund had been outperforming the S&P 500 Index. In the wake disappointing earnings from FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX), which came on top of lowered full-year guidance at the end of 2018, the ETF and the individual stock were both dragged down. Add to that overall concerns of a slowdown in global growth and you are left with a recipe for negative market sentiment across logistics providers as a whole.As we saw with the brick-and-mortar retail sector, macro concerns over their future weighed heavily on the sector throughout late 2017 and early 2018. When the market came to its senses and realized that not all retail stores would go the way of the dodo, companies like Macy's (NYSE:M) rallied sharply -- almost 100%, in Macy's case.Sometimes when the market perceives situations as horrible and things go from there to merely bad, there is serious money to be made.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsMajor issues that have been depressing FedEx stock are either priced in or are short-term, providing far-sighted investors with the opportunity to purchase FDX at a reasonable 13 times earnings (historically, north of 15 times would be more in keeping with the norm). Keep in mind that as recently as last October, FDX traded at $240 per share, or 32% higher than current levels. What's Weighing on FedEx StockOne of the macro issues has been the global growth concern. However, China's recent March PMI numbers should assure the market that the world's second-largest economy is not in dire shape by any means. The official PMI number rose to 50.5, representing a 1.3% growth month-over-month. At least for now, global growth based on the manufacturing indicator may be slowing but is not going negative. * The 8 Best Stocks to Buy for an April Rally A deterioration in global trade would of course hurt FDX disproportionately, but that risk seems largely unfounded based on the PMI data. TNT & AmazonAnother major worry surrounds the TNT acquisition. It may well have been a mistake, but the worse-case scenario is already priced in at current FedEx stock levels -- namely, a lack of profitability and integration issues. I would add that FedEx appeared to be very disciplined in closing that transaction.United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS), its primary competitor, was ready to pay almost $7 billion dollars for TNT, where FDX closed the deal $2 billion lower below $5 billion. I suspect patient investors will see FedEx work through the integration pains -- M&A is rarely smooth with such large companies -- and see good returns on capital for their investment in the business.Another worry is that Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) will be entering the space and eating FDX's lunch. This feel likes a broken record playing over and over again. It's what plagued the retail sector, and now that headline risk has shifted to logistics.While transportation and logistics is a growing part of AMZN's business that FedEx investors should not ignore, the threat is not immediate. The scale of both FDX and UPS is not easily replicated. Amazon's existing network is simply not in the same league and would require a huge capital expenditure push, especially in non-metropolitan areas.It's true that AMZN is pushing forward, like the announcement in February about Amazon Air's fleet expansion, but remember that global transportation and logistics is not a finite pie. It can absorb new players on the domestic and international level while allowing for growth among existing players.Ultimately, this play comes down to current valuation. FedEx stock is pricing in a horrible scenario, but the reality is likely to be merely bad, or even not-so-bad-at-all.As of this writing, Luce Emerson did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
