Awesome earnings report, great if you are a share holder. Not so much if you are a pilot.
Great company to work for with solid job security. Not so much if you are a pilot.

UPS ground and trucking operations kicks ass, mostly due to their largest economies to scale, and have fat margins. Unfortunately though it just seems like management is throwing in the towel in regards to the air freight division. At least they are sitting on a horde of cash when they decide to get aggressive and compete again.

It'll turn, just a question of when

This really makes my day.......................the beatings will continue.

Did not hear that, but did hear that lower management is on the chopping block. Maybe why they would spread that rumor.

Now that would make my day.... in a good sense. At least I have 5 years remaining on my recall. The FQM would be, "Don't let the door hit your butt on the way out."

NURPS are running scared, hopefully some of them will get fired, that would make my day. These guys are tasked to prowl sites like this and the Bar and Grill to see what the latest rumors are and spread management lies to stir the pot.

I don't think this will happen, it's not about the money, rather the control...

UPS's financials and stock look solid. P/E ratio is only 18, dividends and yields are all solid. Minus the big stock buy back, that one has me wondering. Other than that, seems like you guys should be growing the operation.

Here's hoping for you guys on the street.
