3 Interesting Quotes from FedEx Q1 Earnings Call ($FDX)

hey guys welcome back to ostrich,investing where our goal is to educate,and debate specific stock investment,ideas today were gonna highlight a few,key points from FedEx q1 earnings call,q1 results were disappointing and the,company reduced 20/20 learnings per,shared guidance the stock intern fell by,15% on the news so after reviewing the,parents presentation I wanted to,highlight three quotes from the call,that I think are important for investors,now I know that all happened a few weeks,ago so were a little bit behind here,but we did recently do a more,comprehensive video on FedEx including,key considerations for investors bull,bass and bear case scenarios so I,thought it was important to circle back,I will put a link in the description or,on this video if I can figure out how,that you can check out the more fulsome,video this particular vlog is just gonna,focus on three key takeaways from FedEx,q1 results lets jump into it so well,start with the results themselves you,can see q1 results here versus the 2019,comparable period and key takeaway q1,results were below expectations revenue,was flat so you can see 17 billion here,in q1 2020 versus the same 17 billion in,2019 q1 EPS on the other hand was down,so if we look at it on a diluted and,adjusted basis so three dollars and five,cents per share in q1 2020 and thats,down from three dollars and 46 cents in,the prior period so revenues flat,earnings per share down and then above,and beyond that the company reduced,their 2020 EPAs EPS guidance range to,11 to 13 dollars per share so another,earnings per share guide down from from,FedEx,then if we want to just take a quick,look at the stock price chart I decided,to include ups here against FedEx with,one of their their closest peer and,competitor just to show the,and as we talked through this video,theres theres an economic theme,theres sort of a macro theme but I just,wanted to show that FedEx down 41% over,the last year UPS hasnt been a great,story its its been down 2% but I did,want to show the difference and well,come back to you PSA at the end of the,video but just to show the stock stock,chart for FedEx you can see here that,was the first made major earnings miss,and guide down and you can see another,one here and thats a few few weeks ago,when they announced the q1 results so,FedEx has not been a good story even,versus even on a relative basis to UPS,so well start with the three,interesting quotes the first one relates,to an Amazon update so quote comes from,Fred Smith the CEO and he said on the,conference call over the summer these,challenges increased somewhat due to the,decision not to renew our largest Amazon,contract and deepening trade disputes,while the Amazon contract represented,only a small proportion of our revenues,the nature of our business is such that,near-term profits will be adversely,affected since the last bit of volume,has significant flow through to the,bottom line so thats fair we know that,the operating margins are in that six to,seven percent range so they know theres,a ton of cost in the business and they,play a low margin game so the quote here,is make sense on the surface I think the,point that I wanted to raise is if you,only go back a few months to June 2019,when FedEx initially announced that they,were cutting ties with Amazon their,press release read a lot differently,than this quote in fact their press,release and the writings gonna be hard,for you to see here highlighted you know,the percentage of total FedEx revenue,attributed to Amazon represented less,than 1.3 percent of total FedEx revenue,for the 12-month period ended December,31 2018 theres significant demand and,opportunity to grow our e-commerce,business it goes on to say so,essentially the the press release that,they came out the official news release,really downplayed the importance of the,Amazon contract,and then the quote on the conference,call seems to really be in contrast to,that and even though we know that,percentage of revenue as a factual,number that loss of the Amazon business,is one of the factors that the CEO is is,is blaming the weaker results on so I,thought it was interesting just that,contrast and again source here just to,highlight seeking alpha transcripts of,great resource if you want to look at,earnings calls also listen to this one,which was an interesting one to get the,audio on as well next is more on the,macro side global trade so this is from,BRE Carrere hopefully I pronounced her,name properly and shes the chief,marketing officer for FedEx and her,quote is as follows I want to highlight,the q2 calendar year 2019 global trade,volumes decline here over a year which,is the first decline since 2009 this,decline coupled coupled with JP Morgans,global PMI manufacturing export orders,index falling from 47 point five and,August from 49 in May leads us to expect,global trade volumes will contrast I,think thats meant to say contract this,year on an annual basis for the first,time since 2009 so from a macro,perspective FedEx is reading the,economic data and projecting that global,trade volumes are going to fall and,heres one their their investor slide,deck think it only had about six slides,and a couple of charts in it this was,one of them which was the US,manufacturing PMI and you can see the,fall-off here really what I wanted to,highlight here is one of the reasons,that FedEx attributing to the poor,results and the weaker guidance is the,macroeconomic backdrop so well circle,back to that you know in a I think next,slide and then our concluding remarks,but just wanted to highlight that for,you the third quote or theres a couple,of quotes here is just the end analyst,QA and typically when youve got a stock,thats disappointed investors and,analysts for a couple of quarters in a,row because guided down reduced guidance,you can,often get some interesting Q&A sessions,maybe a little bit entertaining and I,think thats what we got a little bit,here so Scott one of the analysts,basically highlighted afternoon guys so,this is I think the fifth straight,quarter of either missing or cutting,missing numbers or cutting guidance are,you approaching guidance any differently,taking a more conservative approach here,so essentially calling out that FedEx,has had a tough time over the last year,and a half at actually beating the,guidance they give to the street the,next one here comes from Brandon and he,talks about their LTL margins I wont I,wont go into it in detail but Fred,Smith the CEOs answer was several,minutes long and it encourage you to,take a listen or go into the transcript,thats chopped it off here but he,definitely he he he took the question to,heart and had a pretty long long-winded,answer I just wanted to see if this,works so I like that,hopefully that worked hopefully you,enjoyed it sometimes you know the the,transcripts on the conference calls you,get a lot of information sometimes,listening you pick up a lot of extra,details and and theres no question that,that you know fred was in defense mode,here on the call to be honest I like it,I like the fact that he wasnt he wasnt,hiding from the questions he was taking,and he but he wasnt shy from defending,the companys position so encourage you,to check out the the conference call,transcript and call if you if you have a,few minutes so those are kind of the,three interesting points from the call,and I think I want to sum it up just,with a bit of a bonus slide here on the,margins and I think thats one of the,key parts of the whole story here and we,start by saying given the relative out,performance by ups over the last year I,decided just to look at the operating,margins for each you can see that since,2016 ups was about twelve and a half,Fed Ex is eight and a half theyve both,seen a downward trend since 2016 so,perhaps thats due to the competitive,pressures high fixed cost theyve both,been trending down ups here the data,operating margin is about 10% and thats,for the six-month period year-to-da

NEVER Trust a FedEx Quote! Charged over $1900 to get a beat up box.

hey yall so today Im making this video,because I got burnt by FedEx pretty bad,so making this so yall want,make the same mistakes I uh requested to,ship this very large package,uh from North Las Vegas to my current,location which I dont really want to,disclose and Im going to show you here,this is Ulan who makes the box thats,the dimensions of what the box is,supposed to be,you can see when the Box arrived which I,mean I opened it so you can ignore that,but,you can see the kind of condition the,Box arrived in which I get its a big,box is 117 pounds,uh the estimate on freight was,Im sorry on FedEx Ground not FedEx,freight correction FedEx Ground estimate,was about,487 dollars,and when I got the bill it was over,nineteen hundred dollars,so that was fun of course theres a,little disclaimer at the bottom that,says you know this quote may not be 100,based on length weight height Dimensions,Etc so Im going to show you this little,clause on their website so you dont get,burnt like I did,okay so here is what FedEx defines as,oversize so weight over 150 pounds or,Dimensions with a combined length and,girth of more than 165 inches thats the,one that that got me uh made mine,oversize even though I still argue that,mine is not oversized,uh and dimensions with a girth more than,130 inches and theres also a length,classification,um that is not listed here so if you,have a very long package you should call,them and ask them what oversize is,because it oversized charge is not,calculated in their quote tool again the,oversized charge is not estimated in,their quote tool and I could not get,anyone to answer why,uh or or explain that to me,so the dimensions many of yall may not,be familiar with is the length plus the,girth which I wasnt quite sure what,that meant but its the longest side of,your package,Plus,the shortest two sides multiply by two,so you can see that here multiply your,width times two your height times two,and add those together,so when you plug it into the formula,remember youve got to do multiplication,first to follow your order of operations,so 32 times 2,64 32 times 2 64. then add all these,numbers together,so what FedEx said is they measured the,package at 32.6 by 32.6 by 32.6,so they round that number whatever they,measured they round it up an inch,so just so you know they round up an,inch if they get 32.1 they round it to,33. then they plug 33 into the formula,and all of a sudden youve got an,oversized package,math is funny because if you eat,rounding makes all the difference on,this oversized thing if youre close to,the Limit,so here is 32.6 by 32.6 by 32.6,at the end if you round,you get 163 which is under the oversized,limit so just beware is what Im telling,yall theyve got so many,flaws in that quoting system and it does,say at the bottom that it may not,reflect the actual charge but who would,expect a 487 dollar shipping charge to,become,almost two thousand dollar shipping,charge over nineteen hundred dollars so,beware dont trust the quote tool and if,I were you I wouldnt ship anything,large on FedEx find another Avenue,because they wont tell you the truth on,the shipping,um I even called and spoke to a,representative,after the fact of the bill to get a,quote,and mentioned that I thought it might be,oversized but to quote the 32 by 32 by,32 package and still got the same quote,as what I got online so talking to,someone doesnt help and then when you,question about it well its not an,actual reflection then at that point,whats the point so you know if youre,shipping a small package sure but if,youre shipping anything large dont,trust FedEx learn from my mistakes so,talk to yall later
