In the long run, FedEx (FDX) is a story of growing revenues, profitability, and margins both in the U.S. and across the globe. All of its four segments -- express, ground, freight, and services -- are expected to bring big business to the company.
However, in the short run the mild economic situation in the U.S., the troubled European economy, soft demand from emerging economies, and a slashed outlook from one of its peers do not reflect optimism for FDX investors. The company has also announced it will offer voluntary buyouts, which shows that the company is planning to cut costs amid declining growth in revenues.
