+ Watch UPS
on My Watchlist
The world’s largest package delivery company, UPS has spread brown around the world to enable global commerce.
As Internet sales and global trades accelerate, the demand for UPS services should continue to grow.
Over the past few years UPS has had a increase in package delivery, optimization in their package delivery system, and situated themselves to be one of the most dominant package delivery carriers in the country. I also believe that they are well-positioned in the global market and will continue to see major growth in this sector.As more and more shoppers move to online forms of retail shipping carriers such as UPS will see an increased volume in freight. This increase in volume will lead to a larger revenue stream and profit. Things that may threaten their bottom line include increased competition with smaller regional carriers such as OnTrack. They also need to keep their prices competitive with larger carriers that serve the entire United States.Over the past three years UPS has had a incredible run. Over the next few years I do not expect to see as large of returns as they have had in the past. But, I believe their revenue and profits will continue to rise at a steady rate.
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.
world parcel growth
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
UPS doesn't have much room for growth.
For reference point and to allow for comments by others. As of the end of March, 2013.ROE 15.15%Trailing PE 95.44PB 20.28Div yield 2.90%
Ecommerce growth is exploding, especially on the mobile front. Whether we choose to have products delivered to our door OR pick up in store, firms like UPS will be moving all of the goods behind the scenes for us.
overseas presence and revenue will continue to grow, coupled with eventual recovery of US and Europe will propel this upwards
Unedited excerpt from a CAPSCall article anticipated for pubication on 27-DEC-2012:The next selection for the newly launched Inflation-Protected Income Growth Portfolio is shipping magnate United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS). Well known for its iconic brown trucks and its catchy “we love logistics” commercials, UPS delivers for Amazon.com (Nasaq: AMZN) and many other online retailers.The company has paid a stable or rising dividend every year since 2001. If you ignore the one-time dividend around the time of its 1999 IPO (that got paid in 2000), its dividend has been stable or upward moving the entire time the company has been publicly traded.
Online shopping=$ for UPS
Long-term bullish on domestic and international shipping. Until DDD starts to build me everything I can buy on Amazon.com, UPS is going to continue to increase its customer base.
UPS will outperform the S&P because of the growing sector of shipping (with online purchases), and can take over some market space from the shriveling USPS.
