Stocks to Watch: UPS, Apple

NEW YORK -- United Parcel Service (UPS - Get Report) has withdrawn its €5.2 billion ($7 billion) takeover of TNT Express after it learned that European regulators would block the deal.

UPS offered to buy TNT, Europe's second-largest delivery company, in March, to better compete with Deutsche Post's DHL. But regulators said in October that the deal would lead to over-concentration in the sector.

"We are extremely disappointed with the EC's position," Scott Davis, UPS chairman and CEO, said in a statement.

UPS said it would pay TNT a termination fee of €200 million.
