    We finish up 2017 with some important earnings….



    When FedEx Corp. $ FDX) reported fiscal second-quarter 2018 results of adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $3.18 on revenues of $16.3 billion. In the same period a year ago, FedEx reported adjusted EPS of $2.77 on revenue of $14.9 billion. Second-quarter results also compare to the Thomson Reuters consensus estimates for EPS of $2.89 and $15.68 billion in revenue.

    The company said that operating results were negatively affected to the tune of $0.31 per diluted share resulting from a cyberattack on the company’s TNT Express business in Europe. An adjustment for integrating TNT into the company accounted for $0.33 in second-quarter diluted EPS.

    FED-EX “NEVER SLEEPS” (esp. this time of year – lol) … and their LIGHTS will be shining all thru season to deliver all those packages as Santa’s helpers 8) They, UPS, and other delivery services will all do great … Even US Post Office may one day “BE GREAT AGAIN” as they could make a profit?

    I read that UPS is still behind from black Friday – I wonder if caught up yet?


    UPS does make a profit
    unfortunately for them, Congress is bleeding them dry by appropriating money to make sure it pays for its retirement program. Congress basically doesn’t allow UPS to invest back in itself to compete, which will be its own undoing.


    Oh believe was referring to United Postal Service $UPS not USPS 🙂
