Will UPS shares deliver the goods? - Globe and Mail

United Parcel Service Inc.'s business is shipping things from one place to another -- fast -- but shares of the world's largest package-delivery company have been going nowhere and analysts are divided on whether takeoff is even in sight.


It seems everything was going fine with this stock until the chairman came out with his negative guidance. We were moving along nicely, well into the eighties. Going into our traditionally slow portion of the year, it was hardly necessary.
With the amount of shares UPS has outstanding, it's highly understandable that we're not going to move up as fast as FedEx, but we do get much higher dividends than they do. I think that that delivers the goods, just fine. We're not a speculative stock, by any means.
