    UPS has been supporting me and my family since 1961. I began my 34 plus year career as a Furniture Helper. I received my first share of stock in 1965 and like the old neckties in my closet, I will hold on to it forever. This company has done well for itself and all the hardworking employees for a very long time. I am thankful that I made the decision to hang around as long as I did.

    Investors use information including company news and announcements, company results (earnings), and technical analysis to make decisions about which stocks to buy and when. I know all of these but still can't figure out the right stock to purchase. I need a good stock broker to help me with this.

    4 large analyst firms have updated their UPS ratings. UBS maintains UPS as a buy with a $221 12 month target; Wells Fargo maintains as overweight with a $223 target; Raymond James lists us as a strong buy with a $220 price; Barclays has us as an equal weight with a $200 target price. So all 4 are $200+ which seems logical given our report yesterday.

    Market is reacting to the reality of a 3% plus yield, a dividend payout of $1.52 coming very soon and every quarter, and continuing to beat expectations every quarter. When excess volume drives inefficient consequences, like overtime, service disruptions, etc, it must be weeded out. Drivers avg. paid day down to 8.5 hours…much happier work force. Took an outsider to figure this out. Look for $200 price sooner rather than later!

    It's pretty rare to hit a near trifecta and still drop nearly 4%. It seems Walmart's report has infected a lot of companies. Here UPS beats on EPS, revenue and reiterates guidance suggesting an improving environment in the next 6 months. The simple fact that domestic and international volumes were down seems to be the culprit. But if investors were to look a bit deeper into the weeds they'd note that Tome's "better not bigger" philosophy has been quite prescient. UPS revenue per domestic parcel is up 11.9%. Margins are up to over 14%. This is exactly the corporate goal. So, what should a company do when it believes its shares are very undervalued? Increase the buyback plan and UPS increased that metric by 50%. So despite the initial market response this morning, it won't take long for the shares to move back to the mid-$180's. In my view, they should be heading slowly towards $190. Everything the company measures says that where we should be. Hopefully sooner rather than later the market will agree.

    Same B/S no matter how well UPS did they still drop. FedEx misses and goes up...I can't figure. Just happy we're maintaining at the current level in this market! In for the Long haul!

    So UPS has created a cash cow by stressing quality! FedEx is desperately trying to copy Tome’s vision. Hard to do with the contractor work force. And you see it daily in time in transit, quality of delivery. Talk to anyone in the supply chain and they will reiterate UPS is the best. It’s a given that volume will slow as the economy slows. Amazon will take the worst of it followed by FedEx. I see Amazon in 5 years out of the delivery business. Their model cannot be sustained. They will rely on USPS.

    Predicting a pretty good beat on EPS and a slight beat on revenue. I'd like to think that Carol will offer up a reaffirmation of prior going forward advice. In today's reporting environment that would be pretty solid and should move us right around $190+

    I am staying far away from UPS- It looks like it is going to drop off a cliff. I actually get way better stocks at (http://Themaxgains.tech)

    What a messed up market. Why, why , why are the futures down so after this great earnings report?
  • G

    hmmm .... i was actually extremely impressed that they could pull off those kinds of earnings numbers with volume falling that much .... so one can imagine what will happen when volume bounces back and it is of the more profitable kind. they also have a few big projects to drive more efficiency and increase automation, and that will hopefully offset higher labor costs going forward, as mentioned on the call. however, i think it will take some time for those efforts to kick in. i think the higher labor costs in 2nd half and beyond has folks a little worried. ceo mentioned some cost levers they chose not to pull. probably waiting and watching economy closely before pulling them. they need folks for Peak, and labor in short supply, so they have to be prudent.

    I think Zack's is way low. Think we are going to be 10c to 13c higher at about $3.27 a share.

    The FDX ground operation is about to experience some pressure due to not passing on the fuel surcharge benefits to the contracted service providers. This is a very interesting story for UPS shareholders. FDX has benefited greatly to date by via this IC ground network. But this trade group may put some real pressure on the business model. https://apnews.com/press-release/pr-newswire/united-states-359db0e9ab487ee774e2f43d2f874941

    from what i remember on the earnings call, the company turned away some volume on its own accord. there was also an additional unexpected drop in volume. so part of the volume decline was intentional, i assume it was of the least profitable kind. So the drop in volume looks worse than it was. I would think the company has some flexibility to fill excess capacity, and going forward maybe they will choose to do so with lower margin volume if they are slow to fill it with the more profitable kind. ...

    We’ve found one company that’s positioned itself perfectly as a long-term picks-and-shovels solution for the broader crypto market — Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and all the others. In fact, you've probably used this company's technology in the past few days, even if you've never had an account or even heard of the company before. That's how prevalent it's become.
