UPS-N had some interesting news with the FFA approval of their drone delivery business. FDX-N is a few PE multiple points cheaper. UPS has had a positive trend change. FDX has been pulling back again. He prefers UPS if you had to. But neither one is really doing well. Global growth is the most important indicator for both companies and it is not favourable.

UPS vs. Fedex Fedex got clobbered based on past earnings, so they've diverged from UPS. Positive seasonality all the way to Thanksgiving. UPS has a trend of higher highs, higher lows, but Fedex is the reverse. He'd stay away from all transportation altogether because shipping metrics on the economy are pathetic. Better places to be.

(A Top Pick Sep 05/18, Down 5%) Has sold some of this. UPS is more resilient than FedEx. Long-term it's a great play on e-commerce--more stuff is getting delivered. It's a short-term trade now--global trade is a little off--but a long-term hold. It's the best company in this industry. Pays over a 3% dividend yield.

Would sell UPS and buy Fedex. Fedex is better managing headwinds from Amazon. They also have more areas that Amazon won' tackle. Wouldn't invest in either due to high cost in order to compete. Their current infrastructure is not ready to compete in the e-commerce world, and will eat up their free cashflow.

Longer term, it is a solid company and e-commerce will work well for them. They have to build out their business to allow direct delivery to consumers. This will eliminate their free cash flow for the next several years. Amazon is increasing competition and adding further headwinds.

(A Top Pick Dec 03/18, Up 8%) Very up-down chart since 2014. $120 is a good sell target which it has hit four times in that time frame. A good company.

UPS or Fedex? Fedex gave an earnings warning late last year and that hurt the value. The two stocks trade similarly. Amazon is an issue for both, who is developing their own delivery service. He wouldn't own either stock.

(A Top Pick Oct 25/18, Down 8%) From October to December this one usually outperforms the S&P. This year the trade war got in the way so he never bought it.

Looked like an easy trade, and then it broke down. But this is a relatively short occurrence. It will at least bounce up to where he bought it, as it's oversold. If it gets through that level, you have another sideways stock. Have to be prepared to pull triggers to sell if they fail. Yield is 3.9%. (Analysts’ price target is $122.24)

(A Top Pick Sept 27/17, up 1%). The largest small parcel company in the world. Amazon will not crush them. They have large economies of scale. Amazon needs UPS and FedEx. Is cheap at 14X next year’s earnings and thinks it is going higher.

He believes the entry of Amazon into this space is creating concern. He would be a buyer here or on further weakness after the current fears subside.

He has viewed this a good indicator of the economy – especially consumer goods. Amazon has decided UPS could not meet peak delivery demand and has decided to invest in their own distribution network. They will still survive.
