FedEx stock surges as full year forecasted earnings upped

The second-top parcel delivery company in the world, FedEx, today upped earnings projections for the current fiscal quarter and for full year earnings.

The company’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Alan Graf, made the announcement early today in a written statement.

Mr. Graf said the increase in earnings projections were a direct result of better-than-anticipated volume growth with Express and Ground shipments.

 The company raised EPS forecasts to $1.05-$1.25 per share, up from $0.85 to $1.05 per share.

For the full year, the company raised EPS projections to as high as $5.20 per share, up almost 17-percent from $4.40 per share.

The market is reacting positively to the news, sending the FedEx stock (NYSE:FDX) trading up more than $3.70 per share (4.7-percent up) to $82.69 per share in early morning trading today.

About 90% of colon cancer cases begin from non-cancerous tumors, polyps, which could form in the large bowel. Screening with a colonoscopy will painlessly remove any polyps hence almost entirely reducing your risk of developing the horrible disease. The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
