Surprise, surprise: After the U.S. Postal Service defaults on a $5.5B payment to fund healthcare for future retirees and sees warnings pop up right and left that even more dramatic operational defaults could occur, a peak at which companies the USPS might leave holding the bag could be of interest. Northrop Grumman (NOC +1.4%), United Continental (UAL +0.9%), and UPS (UPS +1.2%) all brought in more than $100M last year from the USPS, but topping the list is FedEx (FDX +2.4%) at $1.495B.

    SA -- don't you mean "a peek at which companies..." rather than "a peak at...?" That was a bit confusing at first.
