Can United Parcel Service Continue To Deliver Returns?

Shipping products around the world is a critical part of the economy.  It's amazing to think that 100 year or so ago it would take weeks just to get something a few hundred miles away, and now you can get something to the other side of the world in less than a day...if you're willing to pay for it.

The share price of United Parcel Service (UPS) is down roughly 13.5% from its 52-week high.  At the worst of the "December Dump", shares were down at $93.50, or approximately 25% below the 52-week high.  While shares have recovered since then, I wanted to take a further look at the shipping and logistics company to see if it deserves a spot in my portfolio.

  1. You should take a look at Westrock Company (WRK). They are in the packaging industry. They face stiff competition, but the stock has been beaten down and they have been really aggressive in the M&A department. Dividend growth seems very promising with them and they are trading at an impressive value. With e-commerce and global commerce increasing YOY the need for packaging to ship items safely will only increase.
