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.
