What are Wall Street analysts saying about United Parcel Service stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about United Parcel Service stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "UPS is being aided by a significant increase in home deliveries amid the prevalent coronavirus pandemic. Notably, the need for door-to-door delivery of essentials during this crisis is rising. Owing to the surge in residential and healthcare shipments, UPS performed impressively in second-quarter 2020. The substantial boom in e-commerce business is a huge positive and is likely to boost UPS' September-quarter results too. We are also encouraged by UPS' solid free cash flow. Notably, adjusted free cash flow surged 77.2% year over year in first-half 2020. We are, however, concerned about the decline in the company's overall adjusted profit in the first half of 2020. The downside was mainly due to coronavirus-induced supply chain disruptions. Coronavirus-induced weakness in the industrial sector has resulted in decline in B2B volumes." (9/29/2020)
  • 2. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "NEW YORK (dpa-AFX Analyser) – Die US-Bank JPMorgan hat das Kursziel fur UPS von 127 auf 113 US-Dollar gesenkt, aber die Einstufung auf Neutral" belassen. Analyst Brian Ossenbeck passte seine Prognosen fur die nordamerikanischen Logistikkonzerne an die erwarteten Einbussen aus der Corona-Krise sowie an die niedrigeren Energiepreise an. Daraus resultierten fur UPS sinkende Umsatz- und Ergebnisschatzungen (bereinigtes Ebitda) fur die Jahre 2020 und 2021, schrieb er in einer am Donnerstag vorliegenden Studie./edh/fba Veroffentlichung der Original-Studie: 08.04.2020 / 20:47 / EDT Erstmalige Weitergabe der Original-Studie: 09.04.2020 / 00:48 / EDT Hinweis: Informationen zur Offenlegungspflicht bei Interessenkonflikten im Sinne von § 85 Abs. 1 WpHG, Art. 20 VO (EU) 596/2014 fur das genannte Analysten-Haus finden Sie unter http://web.dpa-afx.de/offenlegungspflicht/offenlegungs_pflicht.html."
