+ Watch UPS
on My Watchlist
The world’s largest package delivery company, UPS has spread brown around the world to enable global commerce.
Trading at 50X book value (would take company 10 years to pay down debt using 100% of profits)
Yes, it is possible to ship a car to an American living in Michigan.
Massive investment on Europe.
I believe UPS is a solid company and learns very quickly from its mistakes. It offers a good dividend and has been a good company for 107 years.
infrastructure importance to online
High demand for services, low fuel prices, anf innovative technologies make "Big Brown" a likely winner this year.
Increasing demand for online shopping + low fuel prices.
Winter will bring on some doubtful consumers who are a bit skittish about the weather and a possible effect once again on UPS's ability to overcome snow and bad roads.
Solid technology and infrastructure. Increased demand in services due to explosion of online shopping, etc.
Will benefit from growing Internet Online Shopping market.
a big boy in shipping, think they will do well internet shopping exploding. Own all these stocks in my drip.
Highly efficient...great use of data for improved performance...ecommerce should continue to grow and that should drive growth for UPS.
As Internet sales and global trades accelerate, the demand for UPS services should continue to grow.
Obviously UPS is going to benefit from the movement of consumers purchasing online. I believe UPS is in better shape than its competitors because of it's more stable labor force. UPS hires employees and retains them until retirement.
Buying UPS seems to be a conservative way to play Io T, "he Internet of Everything" that in five years will be "The" technology to be in.
This year is going to be the jump start to UPS catching up to FedEx. Amazon is the fuel to this solar flare. The Christmas jam is great news, Record temp hires, increase costs AGAIN this year, straight dominated the shipping game and is preparing to be a juggernaut. $110.00 some time in February.
recieved a tip to buy puts on this one . looked good
I've always been pleasantly surprised with UPS until recently. In the last 2 months I have ordered 1 package (end of Nov) that got lost. And had 2 other packages delivered to me that were NOT mine (the addresses weren't even similar). And in the last 1 to 2 decades I have NEVER had a UPS error. So 3 in 2 months raised my suspicions.Now this could just be my particular driver or UPS branch location with the issue. But it raised a red flag that there might be some logistical/communications issues going on throughout the company, and my experience may be just one manifestation of it. Has anyone else been experiencing a sudden uptick in UPS errors in their deliveries. If so, please comment on this post and give details!Best,Joe
