    So here we are in the pre-market a week before earnings barely holding on to $200. Hopefully , we beat by a decent margin, offer solid going forward advice and raise the dividend substantially.

    UPS is cutting part-time pay nationwide.

    It's a shame that the general trend of thievery of goods in this country seems to be on the rise. Whether it's a smash and grab, stealing deliveries off doorsteps, hijacking a vehicle or simply breaking into rail cars, it's like another epidemic. I wonder what type of insurance UPS might have larger scale events? I know we're self-insured for the regular operations. check out this story and picture. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/01/14/thieves-find-new-source-for-stolen-goods-delivery-trucks-and-trains-.html
    Major retailers, including Target and Best Buy, have spoken out about organized thefts and urged Congress to make it harder for criminals to sell stolen goods.

    They cut pay because their earnings were horrible. Youll see.

    At some point, analysts will begin to value the quality and consistency of UPS not only at peak season but year round. For FDX to perform at an 88% on time service metric during the critical peak season should be viewed as an embarrassment and a failure. We as expected were #1 and the USPS did a fine job as well.

    It’s 100% true that UPS has cut pay for part-time workers nationwide. Record inflation and UPS is cutting wages.

    it's been a bloodbath for some stocks ...and the fed hasn't yet raised interest rates, not even once ...began my liquidations a few days ago ... the markets are not safe ...jeremy grantham ..a very famous investor ..calls this one of the larges bubbles of all time ..and expects the markets to fall 40-50% .. i am not that negative, -i think the fed would step because they are sensitive to market crashes -but i definitely think the risk is to the downside this year ...

    The smart money is buying into this weakness. The Pandemic doom and gloom will fade and the job market is awesome. In 6 months when mid terms are approaching, a whole new bull market will emerge. Use this time to seek new positions in strong companies. It will pay off. Always does!

    closing the gap 😊. Going to the bank Monday making sure they will be able to handle the increase of the new dividend 🤪

    Hopefully the guidance will be substantial to support >$200 price along with expected dividend increase. The global economy will hit a serious recession if China invades Taiwan. 90% of the chips used both here and around the world are manufactured in Taiwan. China is salivating to control all of that. And I see no way to prevent it.

    Just found my FedEx Letter in a snow bank in front of my garage. Thank God it didn't get taken away by the plow. It had a Realestate check from a closing for several Thousand! I guess I should be happy at least they put it in a bag.

    glad i am mostly on sidelines at this point .. the ukraine invasion that appears to be imminent could cause shocks to the market .... there is a flight to safety going on ... as the energy markets are already under stress .... the year is starting off with a bang ..... in the wrong direction ..

    I just looked at an UPS chart and noticed a dramatic increase in stock price around the middle of 2020 - about July 2020. What happened to make the stock rise so quickly during that time?

    Tome was selected by the board for a short tenure for a specific purpose, and she is executing that plan. The stock price is doing well with the current plan, at least as i write this.

    And before you know it your ahead. The UPS way. Something the other courriers know nothing about.

    JC, Why all the negative jibber jabber again? Tome is doing an awesome job! Who knows why she never got the top job at Home Depot….and who cares? She had this Pandemic strategy figured out long before Fred Smith or Jeff Bezos. Seriously, did some female boss fail to promote you at some point?? Could have something to do with that negativity your spouting here. Get over it. Life is beautiful!!

    Trefis released a good forecast on UPS international export predicting a 14% increase in revenue per piece in year end 2021. And puts UPS at a Price target of $238.

    Ah, the dividend. Don’t be surprised if the dividend sees some changes. Back in the day when UPS issued 2 dividends a year, the December dividend was issued in stock. As shareholders, you were free to sell those shares or hold them for more growth. True, UPS was privately held back then. But what a tremendous growth generator….buying back huge blocks of stock, with profits, and distributing the shares back to your base. Food for thought.
