    Default Fedex and Amazon

    I'm sure those working at Fedex have heard this. I wonder what they think about the possibility of a buy out, or worse that Fedex may not continue ion it's current form.

    FedEx Nightmare
    In the next 24 months, FedEx (NYSE:FDX) will either be acquired or lose an additional 40%+ in value. The likely acquirer is Walmart (NYSE:WMT). The gangster move: a merger with Shopify.
    This has happened. Since the launch of Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) delivery service in February 2018, FedEx has lost $25 billion (39%) in value, despite the S&P's 24% gain. Amazon has added $240 billion (33%). In less than two years, Amazon captured nearly one-fifth of the market for e-commerce deliveries in the U.S.
    The Memphis firm's most recent earnings were a sh*t-show with top- and bottom-line misses, drivel about a slowdown in air freight, and (my favorite) an unfavorable calendar - a Kabuki dance attempting to distract investors from the fact they're being featurized by Amazon.
    FedEx shareholders have woken up in an M. Night Shyamalan nightmare. Instead of seeing dead people, investors are haunted by Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans with an arrow the shape of a smile on their side. Everywhere.

    If I remember correctly FedEx shook hands with the devil (Amazon) and now regret ever coming to know them. I interact with several different divisions of FedEx daily. The word is it is mighty slow.

    Amazon is the real reason the USPS lost billions last year again,lost like a $1.50 a package.. .. Now they want to privatize it again.. Maybe Amazon is behind that.. Where are the Teamsters and other unions?? Why don't they go out and unionize the Amazon workforce like they are doing in Europe?? Once again they will be late to the party..
    FedEx not only lost or gave up depending what story you believe but they lost out on Kohls.. In November just around Thanksgiving we had some lady pull into our driveway and knock on the door with a Kohl's package .. After asking a few questions she told me she worked out of Newburgh NY with some company that hires peoples with cars to deliver last mile deliveries.. She got $1.50 a package and started the day with 50 something packages but ours for her was a loser.. We were about twenty miles from her last delivery and the only one she had in PA.. She also had a small child with her.. So maybe this is the future??
    Again with FedEx from what our delivery guy told me it was the amount of damages that incurred every day.. Freight is like a roller coaster .. Ups and downs .. One has to be ready for the long haul..
