UPS easily beat analyst estimates in the 2nd quarter, but the stock appears to be overvalued

A few months ago, I was attempting to identify undervalued stocks based on the current dividend yield compared to the average yield over a long period of time. One stock that I felt was extremely undervalued using this method was United Parcel Services (UPS).

Shares were trading at $107.50 at that time and provided shareholders with a 3.8% dividend yield. This was 80 basis points higher than the 10-year average yield of 3%. If averaged for an entire year, this would be the highest since at least 2004. As a result, I estimated that UPS was undervalued by 27%.

Lower margins countered by higher volumes, especially in cross-border packages

Before the market opened on July 30, United Postal Service (UPS) released its earnings results for the second quarter of 2020.

Both revenue and earnings per share blew past analysts’ estimates, causing the share price to spike nearly 15% throughout the course of the day.


Key numbers

Non-GAAP earnings were $2.13. According to analysts surveyed by Refinitiv, Wall Street had been expecting revenue of

A fast-growing Buffett-Munger stock with a high price tag

It’s a company with a lot of green spread around its financial strength and profitability tables. But the valuation ratio is in the dumps. What is a value investor to think?

The company is Old Dominion Freight Lines Inc. (ODFL), one of the biggest trucking companies in the United States. More specifically, it is a less-than-truckload carrier, hauling for customers that don’t have loads big enough to fill a freight-truck trailer.

As such, it competes with companies such as FedEx Freight (FDX) and UPS Freight (UPS). Old Dominion has

The company's yield is much higher than its long-term average. With no dividend cut likely, this could mean the stock offers an opportunity for a strong return

Aside from reviewing a company’s most recent earnings report, one item I like to consider before making an investment is how the current dividend yield compares to the long-term historical average. I often use both the five and 10-year averages to see if shares are over- or undervalued based on the yield. If the company can’t provide earnings per share guidance, then using the dividend yield can be another way to value a stock.

One company that is trading with a dividend yield above both its five and 10-year averages is United Parcel Services Inc. (UPS).

If first-quarter results are any guide, there will be no bonanza

Lately, I’ve been buying more online and having it delivered to my home. Millions and millions of other consumers around the world are doing the same. So these should be banner days for delivery companies such as United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS), right?

And they are—to some extent. The problem for the company is that residential delivery is just part of its business model. While the brown trucks are no doubt making more deliveries to homes, they are not dropping off and picking up parcels at commercial establishments as they did pre-pandemic.

Some thoughts on a recent public discussion with management

In November, FedEx Corp. (FDX) CEO and founder Fred Smith and Chief Financial Officer Alan Graf sat down for an interview with Stanley Cates of Southeastern Asset Management (the firm has held shares of FedEx in portfolios since the early 1990s, and it’s currently a 6% weighting in their Partners Fund). As longtime readers know, I’ve been following FedEx closely over the past year, and I thought there were a number of interesting tidbits from the interview. I think it’s fair to group what was said into three buckets: the good, the bad and the ugly. My takeaways

Amazon looks to rely on its own shipments

Amazon Inc. (AMZN) announced on Sunday that it will disallow its third-party sellers from using the FedEx Corp. (FDX) ground delivery network for managing Prime shipments. The company cited a decline in the performance of FedEx ground service in times when holiday shipments were huge. The ban is slated to start this week.

Third-party merchants make up more than 50% Amazon’s total goods sold, but neither Amazon nor FedEx mentioned how many shipments would be affected by the restriction. The online retail giant said the decision to temporarily ban FedEx ground for shipment is

You can use this ratio as shorthand for the relative value in a company, but don't depend on it alone

The price-earnings ratio is the second major valuation ratio profiled in Axel Tracy’s book, "Ratio Analysis Fundamentals: How 17 Financial Ratios Can Allow You to Analyse Any Business on the Planet."

The first was earnings per share or EPS. As noted in our digest of that ratio, knowing the EPS is helpful but incomplete knowledge, since it does not factor in the share price. If earnings per share are $1, that would be an excellent return on a $5 stock but a disappointing return on a $20 stock.
