FedEx: Shares Fall After Soft Outlook And Missed Opportunity Of TNT - Seeking Alpha FedEx (FDX), a bellwether for the state of the economy reported its third quarter results Thursday. Investors are disappointed with the cautious outlook and send the shares 3.5% lower. FedEx is worried about the recession in Europe and the impact of continuing increasing oil prices on its business. It expects to continue to see a decline in volume prompting it to cut capacity both domestic and internationally by parking some of its freight airlines already.
