FedEx Corporation (FDX): Today's Featured Services Winner

FedEx Corporation ( FDX) pushed the Services sector higher today making it today's featured services winner. The sector as a whole was unchanged today. By the end of trading, FedEx Corporation rose 77 cents (0.9%) to $89.01 on light volume. Throughout the day, 1.3 million shares of FedEx Corporation exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.2 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $87.57-$89.83 after having opened the day at $88.19 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $88.24. Other companies within the Services sector that increased today were: Peoples Educational Holdings ( PEDH), up 57.1%, P.F. Chang's China Bistro ( PFCB), up 29.7%, Canterbury Park Holding Corporation ( CPHC), up 22.4%, and Avis Budget Group ( CAR), up 19.1%.

FedEx Corporation provides transportation, e-commerce, and business services in the United States and internationally. It operates in four segments: FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, FedEx Freight, and FedEx Services. FedEx Corporation has a market cap of $27.83 billion and is part of the transportation industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 13.7, equal to the average transportation industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 5.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 18 analysts that rate FedEx Corporation a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and four rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates FedEx Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and attractive valuation levels. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, Pep Boys - Manny Moe & Jack ( PBY), down 22.2%, Genco Shipping & Trading ( GNK), down 14.6%, Swisher Hygiene ( SWSH), down 12.9%, and QuinStreet ( QNST), down 12.8%, were all losers within the services sector with Ctrip.com International ( CTRP) being today's services sector loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the services sector could consider iShares Dow Jones US Cons Services ( IYC) while those bearish on the services sector could consider ProShares Ultra Short Consumer Sers ( SCC).
