11:10 EDTFDX, UPSUPS, FedEx failed to deliver gifts in time for Christmas
Many UPS (UPS) and FedEx (FDX) packages that were supposed to be delivered before Christmas were delayed until after the holiday, the companies have confirmed. WHAT'S NEW: Both UPS and FedEx failed to deliver many Christmas gifts in time for the holiday. The companies said the delays were caused by larger than expected shipment volumes, poor weather, and this year's short holiday shopping season. ANALYST REACTION: The brands of FedEx and UPS may be damaged over the short-term by the delays, Wells Fargo analyst Anthony Gallo wrote in a note to investors. On the other hand, there are "limited alternatives" in the residential package delivery space and the companies have provided good service for a long time, the analyst added. Gallo did warn that both companies may have to invest more money in their businesses in order to handle periods of high demand. He kept a Market Perform rating on both stocks. Taking a more optimistic view was Argus analyst John Gelcius who, despite the shipping delays, raised his price target on FedEx to $173 from $122. The company's ground business has grown robustly while posting solid margin growth, Gelcius reported. FedEx can meet the high end of its fiscal 2014 earnings guidance, he wrote. The analyst kept a Buy rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On December 19, The Wall Street Journal reported that several regional shipping companies have been expanding their networks across the country, creating a threat to FedEx and UPS. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, FedEx rose 0.6% to $142.90, while UPS lost 0.25% to $104.20.
