Potential Acquisition by FedEx in Europe
FedEx is looking for potential M&A in Europe as it continues to aim for
expansion in the region. A potential target is TNT Express. UPS was planning a
bid on TNT which it scrapped. Since then the valuations of TNT have bottomed
down. FedEx is expected to make an offer for TNT, but will wait and see if the
operational and financial health of the company would deteriorate further.
FedEx, at this point, does not have enough cash to make a buy this huge, so
the best option for it would be to wait out till TNT becomes more affordable.

FedEx is also looking to increase its profits by $1.7 billion in next three
years. Its options to meet this goal are job elimination and replacement of
its aging fleet of aircrafts which is again a huge capital expenditure.

2013, the company has already paid $0.28 per share as dividends. Its EPS is at
$6.23 and P/E ratio is 17.09.
