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.
