Stocks to Watch: FedEx, AMD, Apple

NEW YORK -- FedEx (FDX - Get Report) , the package delivery giant, is expected by analysts Tuesday to post fiscal first-quarter earnings of $1.40 a share on revenue of $10.7 billion.

FedEx warned of a shortfall in its first-quarter results earlier this month, saying "weakness in the global economy constrained revenue growth at FedEx Express more than expected in the earlier guidance."

When the company gave its warning on Sept. 4, it forecast a profit of between $1.37 to $1.43 a share for the quarter, down from a prior projection for earnings of $1.45 to $1.60 a share.


AMD (AMD - Get Report) announced the abrupt resignation of its chief financial officer, Thomas Seifert.

The No. 2 chip maker behind Intel (INTC) said Monday that Seifert, who joined AMD in 2009 and served as interim CEO in 2011, is leaving to pursue other opportunities.
