What's happening with the September dividend? Normally the board would have met by now and set the dividend amount, record and payable dates. Are things delayed because of 100 Year Celebration events?
Historically speaking the dividend was normally announced by 8/20. Nothing has been said. It does seem that founders day has something to do with it...how about a special $1.00 for 100 years! Don't hold your breath.
This is from YAHOO.FINANCE Messasge board for UPS:
"It has been reported in Europe that UPS and private equity group Apax Partners are in talks to acquire the portion of Deutsche Post currently held by the German government.
Now, this I'd believe if it were in Asia. Since my understanding is we already have a reasonably solid footing in Europe, I just don't see the value. DHL in the U.S.A isn't THAT big of a thorn--at least not in my area. In my area DHL is more like a fly or bug you want to crush. Maybe UPS is interested in some of the modern facilities DHL operates?? I could see FedEx or DHL being an acquisition target for UPS because of their real-estate but nothing else. -Rocky
