    this was on the montly fools website, you know.....the ones that are in bed with fedex and absolutely love writing negative articles on ups. The topic was about a few stocks that "blew away wall street"



    UPS (NYSE: UPS) was another topper. The parcel-delivery specialist earned $0.89 a share this past quarter. That may have been just a penny better than the $0.88 per share that analysts had forecast, but it came at the right time. How many transportation-related companies are cureently smarting over higher fuel costs? Even though many are passing it along to end users via fuel surcharges, delivery remains a tricky environment at the moment. That's why it's commendable for UPS to beat the street by any margin -- much less come in comfortably ahead of last year's $0.78-a-share showing. What can Brown do for you? If you're a shareholder, it can deliver the goods in the most inclement of financial weathers.

    I would think UPS will have a hard task ahead of them in this current 2Q and even the 3Q as we've all seen fuel prices really jump. Estimates are that fuel costs will continue to esculate so the task at hand will be tough. This concern was raised by another member here in another thread and I think they were dead on with it so the question going forward will be can UPS meet or beat the street will likely higher gas prices through 2Q and most of 3Q? I'd feel a lot better had the 1Q numbers beat the street by more than a penny.

    UPS should add a few extra pounds in each vehicle tire to get more rollout thus getting a few extra miles from every tank full of fuel. JMO.

JMO.[/quote]They are in the process of relooping my center and all I can see is more miles. Drive here drive there but just make sure you follow trace. Most of all don't think you know a shorter way.:confused:1
