SBD 2015 pick.

MEMPHIS, Tenn., December 17, 2014 ... FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) today reported earnings of $2.14 per diluted share for the second quarter ended November 30, up 36% from last year’s $1.57 per share.

“FedEx posted strong results and a higher operating margin in the second quarter, with continued growth in volumes and base yields in each of our transportation segments,” said Frederick W. Smith, FedEx Corp. chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We are in the final stages of this year’s peak shipping season, and I’d like to thank the more than 300,000 dedicated team members around the world for once again delivering outstanding service to our customers during the holidays.”

Second Quarter Results

FedEx Corp. reported the following consolidated results for the second quarter:

Revenue of $11.9 billion, up 5% from $11.4 billion the previous year
Operating income of $1.01 billion, up 22% from $827 million last year
Operating margin of 8.5%, up from 7.3% a year ago
Net income of $616 million, up 23% from last year’s $500 million
Operating income and margin increased primarily due to higher volumes and base yields in all three transportation segments. Results in the second quarter also included benefits from the company’s profit improvement programs, lower pension expense and a slightly positive net impact from fuel. These benefits were partially offset by higher aircraft maintenance expense due to the timing of aircraft maintenance events.

Share repurchases benefited second quarter earnings by $0.16 per diluted share.

Outlook

The company reaffirms its fiscal 2015 earnings forecast of $8.50 to $9.00 per diluted share. The outlook assumes continued moderate economic growth and a modest net benefit from fuel. The capital spending forecast for fiscal 2015 remains $4.2 billion.

Lower gas prices should help.

Positive:
- Duopoly in a steadily growing sector
- Low oil and gas prices will boost their earnings
- Recent price correction gives a good entry point

Negative:
- Already at historically high valuations but relative to others it is still reasonable
- Latest quarter was below expectations but I expect that to be a one-timer

Picking this one at a discount. FedEx is an obvious winner in today's high dollar, low oil world.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

FedEd is in a duopoly with UPS and will continue to benefit from the shift to online shopping for everything. Books have been written about the outstanding management.

Pretty sure the difference between FDX and UPS valuations are a sign there's a dividend bubble out there. Might make a great pairs trade.

Largest postal company in the world, and internet sales will continue to drive up demand in years to come. Scale is important, and FDX is making smart partnerships with USPS and others to further entrench their presence in a sector that cannot be replaced: moving things from point A to point B.

As the market improves and the US Postal service continues to decline, people will continue to rely on Fed Ex to get the job done. A quality company with solid leadership.

The ongoing problems with the USPS will be interesting to see, as I anticipate a possibly entire privatization of the postal system down the road. If nothing else, the increase in online shopping and importing/exporting looks good for any established company in the business, be it FDX, UPS, or DHL.

The Post Office of the future. The government already relies heavily on FDX and to a slightly lesser degree UPS. I like both companies. They both make the world we live in a much smaller place. Soon it will be cheaper to mail luggage ahead of you instead of paying fees on the airlines. In some cases it already is.

I like duopolies. Coke needs Pepsi, Moody's needs S&P, Boeing needs Airbus, Android needs iOS, Intel needs AMD and FedEx needs UPS. Essentially I view them as the same company but because they have a sworn enemy, legislators stay out of their way. Further, with the coming demise of the FDXthese guys will see a bump in future years.
