UPS (NYSE:UPS) made its investors proud this morning with a good earnings report and a large jump in its business-to-consumer division, which could bode well for the e-commerce segment. The company gets 40% of its business from business-to-consumer shipments -- think companies such as Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN). These shipments have jumped 12% from last year. Investors are also happy with the 3.2% dividend payout, which is larger than that of FedEx (NYSE:FDX).
