And don't miss Brooke Sutherland on a delayed celebration for UPS shareholders: "Investing in one's own business is, of course, not inherently bad. That's allegedly what the tax bill was designed to encourage, as opposed to massive share buybacks. But in this case, Republicans' vision for increased investment in the U.S. economy is bumping up uncomfortably with shareholders' reality. The problem is UPS has been spending heavily for years on automation, aircraft and other technology to make its network run more smoothly. And it's just not clear what the payoff has been."
