    UPS Info for UPSers Should United Parcel Service's Stock Still Be Sold Above $100? - Motley Fool

    Three key factors were behind the original decision to consider selling UPS' stock above $100: its valuation, its balance sheet, and its dividend. Before the stock gets sold, all three should be reviewed again, in light of the new earnings the company just released, to see if the sell story is still as compelling.

    If its share price continues to rise and gets past $120 by the end of this quarter, the decision to hold on will be revisited. Otherwise, this quarter of the year is huge for shipping companies like UPS thanks to holiday shopping. A strong quarter could result in either another upwards revision in the valuation estimate or an improvement in its balance sheet.

    UPS Info for UPSers UNITED PARCEL SERVICE INC Files SEC form 10-Q, Quarterly Report - Yahoo

    The U.S. economic expansion has continued at a slow pace through the third quarter of 2013. Continued growth in retail sales (particularly among e-commerce retailers) has provided for expansion in the overall U.S. small package delivery market; however, slowing export growth and industrial production, and a lack of significant inventory replenishment, have negatively impacted the growth in commercial shipments. Given these trends, our products most aligned with business-to-consumer shipments have experienced the strongest growth, while growth in our business-to-business volume has remained sluggish.

    UPS Info for UPSers UPS driver has no crashes in 51 years - USA Today

    UPS driver Tom Camp and his big, brown truck have done something no other UPS driver has accomplished: 51 years without an accident.

    That's after an estimated 800,000 to 900,000 miles on the road in metro Detroit, ringing doorbells in Detroit and western Wayne County since 1962, according to the Detroit Free Press.

    "Oh, sure I've had close calls," said Camp, 73, of Livonia, who began working for UPS after graduating from St. Francis de Sales High School in Detroit and serving three years in the Marines. "And 90% of it is paying attention. I drive so defensively now — it's not just in my package truck, it's in my own car — you can almost anticipate what other drivers are going to do."
