UPS (UPS - Get Report)

Company profile: "Big Brown," as the United Parcel Service is known, is the world's largest parcel delivery company with more than 500 planes and 100,000 vehicles to deliver on average 15 million packages a day.

Investor Takeaway: Morningstar says this is one of the companies that "is likely to capture the incremental mail and packages that need to be there on a time-definite basis, and should also see major benefits if Saturday mail delivery (by the postal service) should cease," said S&P in a research note. UPS' shares have a 10-year average annual return of 4.6%.

The company said late last week that it will take a $827 million pre-tax charge in the fourth quarter as it changes to a mark-to-market system of accounting to more accurately report changes in its pension plan. The change will not affect pensions.
