12:58 EDTFDX, UPS, TNTEYUPS advances after abandoning takeover of TNT
UPS (UPS) indicated this morning that it would not acquire Dutch delivery company TNT Express (TNTTY) as previously planned because the E.U. has decided to block the deal over competition concerns. As a result, UPS said that it would pay TNT a EUR200M termination fee. In a note to investors earlier today, Deutsche Bank analyst Justin Yagerman responded to the news by upgrading UPS to Buy from Hold. UPS will likely buy back more shares of its own stock following the termination of the deal, wrote Yagerman, who raised his earnings per share estimates to reflect the expected additional buybacks. The analyst, who added that investors had been cautious about the acquisition, increased his price target on UPS shares to $92 from $83. Similarly, Jefferies analyst Peter Nesvold wrote that UPS would likely buy back a large amount of additional shares or increase its dividend soon. The company could announce such a move after February 5, when the E.U. is expected to announce that it will block the TNT acquisition, wrote the analyst, who maintained a Hold rating on the stock. Meanwhile, Nesvold added that FedEx (FDX) is "extremely unlikely" to launch its own bid for UPS. In early afternoon trading, UPS rose $1.14, or 1.46%, to $79.06, while FedEx added 0.77% to $98.15.

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.
