TheStreet Ratings rates United Parcel Service Inc (UPS as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the negative front, Ultrapetrol Bahamas (ULTR), DS Torm (TRMD), PHI Incorporated (PHII), and Tam (TAM) were all losers within the transportation industry with P.A.M. Transportation (PTSI) being today's transportation industry Loser Spotlight stock.
