3 Reasons to Sell UPS Stock Above $100

United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS  ) is a selection for the real-money Inflation-Protected Income Growth portfolio. In this brief video, portfolio manager Chuck Saletta gives three reasons why he's considering selling it if it rises above $100 per share.

Dividends Matter to Investors' Total Returns
While they don't garner the notoriety of highflying growth stocks, dividend stocks are less likely to crash and burn. And over the long term, the compounding effect of the quarterly payouts, as well as their growth, adds up faster than most investors imagine. With this in mind, our analysts sat down to identify nine rock-solid dividend stocks. To discover the identities of these companies before the rest of the market catches on, you can download this valuable free report by simply clicking here now.

To summarize those three reasons:

  • Its balance sheet leverage has grown due to pension-plan funding.
  • Its market capitalization has grown past Chuck's fair-value estimate.
  • Its ability to aggressively raise its dividends in the future may be at risk from that additional leverage.

    Chuck,

    I was wondering if you could expound a bit more on how you go about determining a company's fair- value estimate.

    Sounds like a valuable metric to use for my own dividend stock portfolio.
