FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX) profit rose 11% to $562 million

Ex truck in Miami. Fed Ex Corp. reports quarterly results after the stock market closes Tuesday

Extra costs associated with the acquisition of the "severely under-invested" TNT hit FedEx's third-quarter results, it announced today. The consensus estimate was for EPS of $2.62.

Reported operating income was up from $864m to $1.03bn - but there was actually a drop in the adjusted (non-GAAP) figures, from $1.16bn to $1.12bn. Even with our highest volumes ever, we achieved record service levels. But as FedEx held a conference call to discuss its results, the stock reversed its declines and then some, settling in for an increase of about 2 percent as of 6 p.m.in NY. May 2020 is the target date for the full-integration of Dutch courier TNT Express into the delivery giant's operations and investors remain positive about the potential synergies the deal will have for the Mempis-based company with lagging profitability. Total package revenue was $5.4 billion, up 3.2% YOY; total freight revenue was $1.1 billion, up 4.8% YOY. The company has experienced volume of 3,352,327 shares. Total daily global export packages at 589,000 were up 4 percent, and revenue was up 1 percent at $53.92.

FedEx earned $562 million, $2.07 per share, on revenues of $15 billion.

Revenue may have grown 6% year-on-year, from $4.41bn in fiscal 2016 to $4.69, but operating income fell 8%, down from $557m to $515m. Its FedEx Ground Segment also saw solid gains, due to the higher base rates and commercial volume growth leading the way, although residential volume lagged.

Income and revenue rose during the peak holiday season at FedEx, but higher fuel costs helped keep profit below Wall Street's forecast. The firm shows a 20-Day Simple Moving Average of 0.89% with a 200-Day Simple Moving Average of 10.88%.

These factors were partially offset by the yield growth in all of the company's transportation segments, he added.

That is especially reflected in how FedEx is not adjusting its fuel surcharge on a weekly basis rather than a monthly basis for Express and Ground.

"Amazon is a wonderful company, and they certainly have revolutionized the ecommerce world, and we're not sure what Amazon's going to do one way or another", he said. The FedEx Services segment provides its other companies with sales, marketing, information technology, communications, customer service and other back-office support.

Jerry Hempstead, president of Hempstead Consulting, said that like UPS FedEx had "profitless prosperity" during the holiday rush.

"Three things you should know about fuel", Graf said. "It may appear that the incremental business from a "handful" of seasonal e-commerce shippers erased the profits of what should have been a sterling quarter". Finally, Barclays PLC restated an "overweight" rating and set a $205.00 price objective on shares of FedEx in a report on Wednesday, December 21st.

With two consecutive misses, FedEx stock should remain under pressure. "The management team is very bullish on the future in particular with the integration of TNT into their network and the synergies that will result when fully integrated".
