    That's like Proctor & Gamble telling you to buy soap.

    ​I assign a "snowballs chance in hell" this happens.

    So you're saying there's a chance?

    Yep, if you are in stairwell B between the first and 6th floors.

    It's largely symbolic, but the fact that it happened is significant. Times are changing at FedEx, and investors are starting to see that the man behind the curtain isn't a wizard at all.

    The stockholders need to get their heads out of the sand for sure. Reading this forum would definitely open some eyes.

    I voted em all out. And nix that 16 mil stock option freebie. If you have stock, send in that vote.

    I sold it all many years ago. Buying UPS now.

    Interesting article on FedEx by the other day. Pointed out that in the past six months at fedex, there have been 10 insider sales with zero buys and that the hedge funds are also selling off their holdings. If I did still own any FedEx, I would be selling it as fast as I could.

    Sold mine months ago and haven't looked back. Not worth it.

    I'd love nothing more than to see Smith outside looking in.

    New blood in this company has been needed for a long time now.

    This company absolutely needs new leadership, but Smith doesn't show any signs of releasing control. Even if he does retire, his hand-picked successor is unlikely to deviate very far from the current script. As long as FedEx still makes money, the ongoing failure of the Express opco won't be a huge issue, since Ground profits will still be high. Overall, however, investors seems increasingly wary of FedEx.
