What are 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, "United Parcel Service's shares have outperformed its industry as well as rival FedEx over the last three months. While the stock has gained 7.1%, the industry has advanced 5.3%. Shares of FedEx have gained only 1.5% in the period. In fact, UPS is leaving no stone unturned to perform well in the upcoming holiday season. It expects to benefit from the growth in ecommerce. Meanwhile, growth in export shipments continues to boost UPS. Additionally, the company’s efforts to reward its shareholders seem to be encouraging. Earlier this year, it hiked quarterly dividend by 6.4%. Furthermore, UPS' expansion efforts raise investors’ optimism. However, adverse foreign currency movements and high costs might hurt results in the third quarter of 2017. Results are scheduled to be revealed on Oct 26." (10/6/2017)
- 2. 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)
- 3. 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."

Consensus Ratings for United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
