    another day, if the news wasn't this week it doesn't count. UPS made promises and delivered results. Fredex keeps promising but doesn't deliver. UPS has been supporting Ecommerce for years and fredex just getting into it. Amazing how short sighted wall street analysts have become.

    the 10-year is falling ... anticipating a recession ...even though interest rates expected to climb ...that is pushing up value of ups and other quality dividend paying companies like it ...

    Another quarterly dividend of $1.52 per share on all outstanding Class A and Class B shares.

    The dividend is payable June 2, 2022 to shareowners of record on May 16, 2022.

    Thank you UPS!

    There are a lot of arguments to be made as to ideal types of volume and how macro conditions have been impacting us and the sector. One thing that can't be negated is UPS's improving margins and, as others have pointed out, the historically low P/E. UPS has spent most of its recent years circling around 20. At present, the trailing 3 month P/E is 12.75 and the forward P/E is 14.60. So, while our growth in domestic volume may be slowing a bit, with the raising of pricing we did slightly beat revenue expectations and handily EPS expectations. I think this next quarter will be telling for many companies in our sector and FDX's early report will be a tell.

    I wish the Teamsters would have at least elected a UPS'er as there Teamster President. I know this is a financial platform, however with this Sean O'Brien's radical agenda and Democrat scare tactics playbook. Doesn't seem to be a favorable position for UPS to negotiate the flexibility it will need to stay competitive with FedEx and Amazon. UPS as the single highest employer of Teamsters in the County. You would think the Union would be more open to cooperating to keep them both strong. If Mr. O'Brien wants to be a champion for the Union as he boosts! Why doesn't he spend more time and effort growing the Teamsters by organizing FedEx and more importantly Amazon!!! Who gets millions in Tax Breaks from the government! Instead of Biting the Hand that Feeds Him!!! and Thousands of others. Yes I was a Teamsters now retired, and I just received one of my many letters from my Local telling me they have provided me with the legal required notice they have applied with the "PBGC" for Special Financial Assistance. I just hope there is something left once I start to draw my pention!

    I worked @ UPS 40.7 years, retired & drawing a $54K annual pension. This company knows how to make money and they pay top wages & benefits. Go see for yourself, they are hiring.

    AMZN reports surprise earnings miss - "Amazon delivered a disappointing quarter and outlook on Thursday as the ecommerce giant was swamped by higher costs to run its warehouses and deliver packages to customers."

    Shares fell 8% in after-hours trade.

    I think we've been saying that these are the "unprofitable" packages UPS doesn't want . . . get it now AMZN?!

    when you start to see these really large market swings up and down, that is a prelude to a market crash. i am sorry to say that, but that is what i have noticed before past crashes. the market does send out warning signals if you read the tea leaves. i hope i'm wrong, but todays action i view as a prelude to an even bigger move by the markets. we haven't seen capitulation ...

    Nice positive article from Zacks... "UPS has a much higher free cash flow, less restrictive operations, a higher dividend yield, and a stellar track record of quarterly reports. This, paired with the uplifting share performance relative to its peers, leads me to believe that UPS would be better suited for investors than FedEx. At the moment, FedEx is too tied up in integrating an acquisition that was supposed to fuel growth, not stunt it. This has weighed heavy on investors' sentiment and is a driving force behind the poor FDX share performance."

    Bullish about UPS in the short and medium term, but what does everyone think about Amazon potentially making future attempts to encroach on UPS’ territory? Is it a likelihood?

    I purchased some shares two days ago. When could I sell them and still get the dividends?

    United Parcel Service Inc. posted profit that beat analysts’ estimates as price increases and efficiency gains helped offset higher costs and a decline in package deliveries.

    Someone please explain? USPS, FEDEX and now even Amazon can't deliver. UPS continually beats expectations, yet the bus hits us the hardest.

    a great ceo makes all the difference ..just look at microsoft under ballmer vs nadella ...best thing ballmer ever did was pick nadella .... tome now has ups using business intelligence AI dynamic pricing model ...and salesforce can make quick decisions on pricing when negotiating contracts ... they can determine right price to offer the client and close a deal real quickly ... also simplified a few other things from conf call to make it easier for businesses ..she is making really positive changes ...hope she sticks around awhile ...

    See this rebounding some by end of week. The earnings where too good and the big increase in share buybacks will help support. Also the way the market is behaving, UPS is a cash cow with hefty dividend that will draw in safe money.
