    I recently heard that UPS was considering using the IRS windfall to fund a stock buyback. Anyone else heard this rumor?
     
  2. I beleve UPS anounced a several billion dollar stock buy back, sometimes in the fall of 2002.
    I had calculated it to represent about $2200 for each employee=220000. It sure would make a nice Anniversary gift.

    Okay, I'll bite. Are you suggesting that this money just be dispersed or are you being facetious?
     
  4. [​IMG]Upscorpis, no, very serious check out my earlier post in new logo. If we choose not to do this, then take the advertising dollars and give them to every employee. It would be money well spent and a win-win situation would be created , There is no better way to celebrate your 100th. Then the world would know how great of a company we really are (Maybe I aught to put this one in the suggestion box).
