    It seems everyone is missing what FDX said in its earnings call (after this article was published) – FDX is no longer very competitive (along with UPS) in the largest and fastest growing segment of the business; the Asian segment (there words – not mine). They have said that they are curtailing operations in that segment because shippers are becoming much more price sensitive (everywhere!). So in response, both FDX and UPS raised their prices significantly in June 2013! Makes sense if you have a VERY short term view of profit potential with an utter disregard for organic growth. Yesterday (after reporting earnings) FDX decided not to comment on quarter to quarter earnings, I applaud this and wish ALL companies would get off the ridiculous emphasis on quarter-to-quarter earnings dog and pony shows. If I were a skeptic (I am), I would imagine that FDX doesn't have anything good to say for the next few quarters. Regardless of the FDX motivation, I applaud the de-emphasis on quarterly results and the notion that companies should be focused on organic growth year-over-year. Let’s stop playing games with taking loans to support dividend payments and stop large stock buy-backs just to shore up quarterly earnings.
