With a Yield Near a 10-Year High, Is UPS Stock a Buy? - Motley Fool UPS' stock is getting killed. Is the pain justified or is this big drop a huge buying opportunity? The shares of package delivery giant United Parcel Service have fallen around 25% from recent highs. That massive decline has pushed its yield up to 4%, which is toward the high end of the company's historical yield range. Is this a buying opportunity for income investors or is something really wrong at UPS today? The problems... UPS isn't exactly hitting on all cylinders right now. In fact, first-quarter earnings were a little disappointing, missing analyst estimates. And while management has stuck to its full-year guidance, Wall Street isn't exactly confident that the company can live up to those self-imposed expectations. The problems here, however, are bigger than a single quarter.
