Shares of Fedex Corp Rank the Lowest in Terms of Projected Earnings Growth in the Air Freight & Logistics Industry (FDX, EXPD, AAWW, UPS, FWRD)

By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Air Freight & Logistics industry with the lowest projected earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (current fiscal year estimated vs. last year actual) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Fedex Corp ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 10.8%. Expeditors Intl is next with a projected earnings growth of 16.3%. Atlas Air Worldw ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 16.6%.

United Parcel-B follows with a projected earnings growth of 20.7%, and Forward Air Corp rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 25.0%.
