    Profiting From the Decline of the USPS - Seeking Alpha

    For investors, that means shares of both FedEx (NYSE: FDX) and UPS (NYSE:UPS) will continue to grow as the Postal Service gives up more market share.

    In fact over the course of the last ten years, FedEx has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 5.9%, while UPS grew at 3.7%.

    I would expect this to continue — even in the face of higher oil prices. Things that have to be shipped will be shipped, regardless of increases in price.
