What are analysts saying about United Parcel Service stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about United Parcel Service stock:
- BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "UPS' management outlined the company's financial targets through F2019 at an investor conference in New York on February 21, 2017. Overall revenue and EPS growth targets are in line with our projections but capex is a little higher than expected. Investments in network expansion/modernization and forex headwinds are expected to weigh on near-term performance, with gradual improvement in the latter part of 2017-2019 time frame. We rate UPS Market Perform." (2/22/2017)
- Aegis analysts commented, "We are upgrading our investment opinion to BUY from HOLD on UPS shares, on the basis of valuation. Our price target remains $120 on discounted 2018 fundamentals, which implies almost a 16% total return from current levels when taking into account the company's 2.9% dividend yield. UPS shares have declined by 10% since the company's EPS release last week. At current levels, UPS shares are now trading at a market multiple, which is about 10% lower than the shares normal valuation. While we are lowering our 2017e EPS estimate from $6.40 to $5.97, much of this has more to do with removing 350bp of tax reform we previously assumed in our 2017e estimates ($0.32), as well as a slower expected share repurchase level $(0.05), and also factoring for about $0.14 of incremental FX headwinds, offsetting about $0.07 in improved volume and margin assumptions."

According to Zacks Investment Research, "Year to date, shares of United Parcel Service have underperformed the broader industry. The share price further declined when the company reported lower-than-expected earnings and sales in the fourth quarter of 2016. Results were hurt by the shift in product mix and weakness in industrial production. The shift to e-commerce in the recent holiday season hurt the company. Higher costs of package deliveries contributed to the soft quarterly earnings. Moreover, the company unveiled a disappointing view for full-year 2017. It expects 2017 adjusted earnings per share in the band of $5.80 to $6.10, which includes $400 million of pre-tax currency headwinds. Foreign currency-related headwinds are also expected to hurt 2017 results. Nonetheless, we are impressed with the company’s efforts to reward shareholders through buybacks and dividend payouts."
