12:12 EDTJBHT, UPS, FDX, ABFS, CNWUPS, Con-way warnings weigh on transportation stocks
Shares of a number of transportation companies are dropping after two of the companies in the sector, UPS (UPS) and Con-way (CNW), pre-announced weaker than expected results. WHAT'S NEW: UPS and Con-way - which provide transportation and supply chain management services - both said that they faced challenges over the last several weeks of the fourth quarter. UPS, which pre-announced its results this morning, stated that it was hurt by the compressed holiday shopping season. The company said the "unprecedented" level of online shopping featured a surge of orders at the very end of the season. As a result of these last minute orders, UPS stated that it had to take "extraordinary measures" that included the deployment of additional equipment and people. UPS estimated that its fourth quarter earnings per share would be $1.25, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $1.43. The company predicted that its fiscal 2013 earnings per share, excluding certain items, would be $4.57, versus the consensus estimate of $4.75. Meanwhile, Con-way said that its expenses generated by employee benefits and cargo claims were higher than expected in the fourth quarter, particularly during December. In addition, its operating efficiencies were lower than anticipated, primarily due to poor weather late in the quarter, the company stated. Con-way estimated that its fourth quarter earnings per share would "approximate" 21c, versus the consensus estimate of 39c. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, UPS fell 1.9% to $98.50 and FedEx (FDX) lost 0.5% to $141. Meanwhile, Con-way shares fell 3% to $40, trucker J.B. Hunt (JBHT) dropped 1.15% to $77.60, and another trucking company, Arkansas Best (ABFS), sank 3.5% to $34.10.

15:03 EDTUPSUPS technical commentary ahead of earnings
The key feature dominating the long-term chart, best seen in a 5-year view, is a potential head and shoulders top. On bearish news, the neckline of the pattern at $94 could be breached which would make the pattern active. Downside potential for the pattern would be to the $75 to $74 area. Patterns are most likely to fail during earnings given the potential for new information to run counter to expectations. If the news is a bullish surprise, upside potential would be to the $103 area, just above the right shoulder of the pattern. A move to $103 or higher would void the pattern. Next resistance levels to watch would be at $109.40 and the life high and 52-week high at $114.40.

17:21 EDTFDXFedEx backs FY16 $4.6B capital spending view
On July 21, FedEx Corporationís wholly owned subsidiary Federal Express Corporation and The Boeing Company entered into Supplemental Agreement No. 6 to Purchase Agreement Number 3712 dated as of December 14, 2011, between Boeing and FedEx Express related to Boeing 767-300 Freighter aircraft. In the Supplemental Agreement, FedEx Express agreed to purchase 50 additional B767F aircraft from Boeing. Four of the 50 additional firm-order B767F aircraft purchases are conditioned upon there being no event that causes FedEx Express or its employees not to be covered by the Railway Labor Act of 1926, as amended. The 50 additional firm-order B767F aircraft are expected to be delivered from fiscal 2018 through fiscal 2023 and will enable FedEx Express to continue to improve the efficiency and reliability of its aircraft fleet. FedEx Express now has a total of 106 firm orders for B767F aircraft from Boeing through fiscal 2023. In the Supplemental Agreement, FedEx Express also acquired options to purchase an additional 15 B767F aircraft. As a result, FedEx Express now has options to purchase a total of 50 B767F aircraft from Boeing. Expected capital spending for FedEx Corporation for fiscal 2016 remains at approximately $4.6 billion. The impact to FedEx Corporationís capital spending in fiscal 2017 from this new B767F aircraft order is expected to be immaterial.
