United Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE: UPS) is currently mired in multiple headwinds, which have made it an unimpressive investment option.

The Consensus Estimate for current-quarter earnings has been revised 15.4% downward over the past 60 days. For the current year, the consensus mark for earnings has moved 9.5% south in the same time frame. The unfavorable estimate revisions indicate brokers’ lack of confidence in the stock.

The UPS stock has lost 1.8% year to date against its industry’s 12.5% growth.

Why the UPS Weekly Options Trade was Originally Executed!

United Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE: UPS),  the world's biggest package delivery company, posted mixed second-quarter results on Tuesday, August 08, beating on earnings but falling short on revenue amid a pullback in deliveries and labor negotiations.

The company posted an operating profit of $2.8 billion, or $2.54 per adjusted share. Earnings per share came in above Wall Street estimates, but well below the $3.29 figure in the same quarter last year. Revenue of $22.1 billion fell short of expectations of $23 billion, and was down 10.9% from $24.8 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Lower deliveries and package volumes were partly to blame, as consumers shopped less online and ordered fewer products amid a pullback in discretionary spending. Domestic revenue fell 6.9% to $14.4 billion, from $15.46 billion in the year-ago quarter. It's a divergence from seasonal trends, as revenue has historically tended to rise in the fiscal second quarter.

UPS shares were down as much as 3% in early trading Tuesday before recovering losses. They're up just under 4% so far this year.

Further Catalysts for the UPS Weekly Options Trade…..

UPS has been involved in a series of negotiations with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, a labor union representing its workers. The two parties reached an agreement last month, which secured higher wages, better working conditions, and other workplace improvements for up to 340,000 UPS workers.23

The company lowered its revenue and profit margin forecasts as a result. Consolidated revenue for 2023 is now forecast at $93 billion, with a projected operating margin of 11.8%, below the current 13.2%.

"UPS is updating its full-year 2023 consolidated revenue and adjusted operating margin targets primarily to reflect the volume impact from labor negotiations and the costs associated with the tentative agreement reached with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters on July 25, 2023," the company said.

Other Catalysts.....

Average daily volume in UPS’ domestic segment, its largest, dropped 9.9% in the second quarter, compared to the 2022 period. There was more parcel diversion in July than the company expected, though the losses weren’t as severe as in June. UPS said it expects that by the end of 2023 it will return average daily volumes to even with December 2022 levels. For the second half of 2023, it expects average daily volumes to be down by single-digit percentages year over year.

According to the company, the diverted business was split evenly, with one-third each going to FedEx Corp., the U.S. Postal Service and regional delivery carriers.

UPS’ U.S. average daily volume in the quarter totaled 17.4 million parcels, according to ShipMatrix, a consultancy. Domestic and international volume combined totaled 20.9 million daily parcels, the firm said.

The company expects wages and benefits to rise by 3.3%, compounded annually, over the life of the contract. The bulk of the increases will occur in the first year, because the Teamsters wanted a front-loaded bump to offset current inflation levels, UPS said. The first-year increases, which will average $2.75 an hour for full- and part-timers, were higher than planned, UPS said. The fifth year will be the second-highest-cost year, with smaller increases in years two through four.

Analysts.....

Jonathan Chappell of Evercore ISI, who said UPS’ formidable cost-management efforts and expected price increases will not offset the headwinds over the next few quarters from the higher labor costs. He has a $185-a-share price target, down from $187. After a rocky start to the day, UPS shares recovered much of their early losses. It closed at it traded at $180.59 a share, down $1.56 per share.
