    The stock price is down to $47 and some change. I think it would be a good time for corporate to step in and take the company back private. Maybe then we can start managing the company for the long term instead of for the next quarter. The philosophy worked pretty well for the first 90 years or so. More than I can say for this publicly owned experiment.

    taking it public served a purpose. and not just to sell the stock to the public to raise money

    i am sure they are and will be buying the stock back, because unlike many others out there, ups stock has a real "value" to it, nnot just what people think it is worth.

    Within the 30 day period of announced earnings...therefore UPS can not buy or sell stock.
    Need to move up announcement so we can though...if that can be done.

    time to join the employee discount program, they use the lowest price for the quarter minus 10% .
    ( so $47-$4.70= $42 that a steal )

    Unfortunately it is the lower of the first or last day of the quarter...not the lowest of all 90 days.
