    Earnings will blow away Fedex and rise massive after earnings. Unless they ride it up to 190-195 range before earnings, I see it to hover around that mark once they release. There is so much growth now that everything is online and there is everyone online trying to sell and buy. The way of the world is shopping and then shipping. Do not sell this for 10 years.

    This was originally a reply to a J.C. comment. But, I wanted to post this here as well. I am the school bus so, let me take you to school. UPS said they were not updating their ESP or guidance estimates for the year because the numbers were unpredictable. So, those EPS have not been updated since March. Here is what we do know though. Comparing the previous two quarters revenue is up 19.27%. Now versus June's numbers revenue is up so far is up another 43.8%. After building more hubs, upgrading their existing hubs, increasing their trucking and plane fleets, UPS still can't handle all their volume. Roughly 20% of their daily volume has to be subbed out to other carriers to meet demand. The 5% of UPS volume from Amazon is not even a factor anymore. When we take FedEx's negative growth, the future growth of UPS at 13% is March's conservative analysis. UPS also has the brightest future with additional revenue streams. They have a 2 year head start on drone deliveries. UPS is taking on U-Haul and Pods by building home storage warehousing and moving families across the country. UPS and Google shopping penned a deal with their WARE2GO to take on Amazon shopping directly. And what most people don't know is that UPS actually set up Amazon's warehousing and distribution network. UPS is cheap even at $200 right now. With the threat of Google and UPS biting into Amazons profits, well watch out!

    I've asked this before, but is there some sort of mediator on the board? I've posted several insightful posts that initially show up, but then aren't here 2 minutes later. See my reply to Don below. I put that in a separate post, but now it's gone. I get TOS, but also don't know why mine would be removed. Thanks.

    Just the opposite for me. I tell whoever I am ordering from if you can't send it via UPS don't send it at all. I can easily get what I need from a supplier that does use UPS. To many times I have had other carriers break or totally lost my shipments. In my experience no one can come close to UPS.

    Here's Benzinga's recent UPS analyst summary. It looks like Citi will be upgrading soon. Meanwhile, the loser 3- Ravi Shankar @ Morgan Stanley, Donald Broughton and Berenberg- all have some explaining to do. But hey, they're the professionals what does a company led be a dynamic female CEO, making future oriented changes with all the experience of more than a century know? Forget all that- let's listen to these 3 analysts on the lower end of the performance scale. No, maybe not.

    Interesting. The story barely mentions UPS even though the Shipmatrix analyst states that UPS service levels have been superior to FDX's. Here's the FDX peak season USA Today summary.

    Earnings come out in a month and UPS is probably in the same boat as Fedex and made a big jump in profits due to pandemic shipping and buying. Should expect to see some upswing in the days leading up to earnings report. Plus the reduction of top heavy management could only help their bottom line.

    Can someone please explain why UPS stock was only worth about $118 a few months ago BEFORE the pandemic and when 2021 consensus EPS was over $8, and is now worth $161.55 when consensus EPS is below $8? Something isn't adding up. Either the financial analysts, as a group, are incompetent and have significantly understated the EPS for next year, or investors are too euphoric. UPS is still a very high cost unionized company. Amazon is still building out their logistics network and taking share. USPS is still losing BILLIONS of dollars by charging rates that are too low, which is hurting UPS and FedEx. FedEx has now turned the corner and will likely begin taking share away from UPS once again, as they did for many consecutive years before recent setbacks that are now behind them. Isn't there much more downside with this stock than upside?

    I heard that UPS is working with WKHS for drone delivery and EV trucks. I think it's not yet priced in. EV trucks will bring total cost significantly lower.

    It makes you wonder how Amazon and FDX have been able to address this issue. I guess by not having a promote from within policy they do all their hiring from the outside? Seems putting a restriction on internal advancement, usually considered a good thing in corporate policy, is being penalized here. I suspect our driving safety record is 2nd to none. Any thoughts on this?
