  • Warning: S&P 500 Nearing A Top 1 comment

    As the S&P 500 continues marching higher, all eyes will be on corporate earnings for the next quarter and the rest of the fiscal year. While much of the move in the S&P 500 can be related to the Federal Reserve's easy monetary stance, ultimately, corporate earnings need to rise to justify current price levels.

    One company that is quite involved in not only the American economy but also the global economy is FedEx Corporation (NYSE/FDX). The latest corporate earnings report by FedEx indicates that perhaps the underlying economy is not as strong as many people believe.

    FedEx reported a 31% decrease in corporate earnings for the third quarter. It is interesting to note that international export volume did increase during the quarter by four percent; however, a large number of shippers moved away from priority services to cheaper options.

    Wasn't it last year (maybe the year before) that DHL announced that they were no longer making fast freight shipments in the U.S.? If Fed Ex didn't pick up with the decrease in competition (and UPS didn't either) then I doubt our economy has improved. Just another anecdotal telltale sign. Please point out if I'm wrong.
