Popular Cyber Monday  Plays:

SHIPPING  

As items purchased online must be shipped, FedEx and UPS are without a doubt one of the biggest beneficiaries of Cyber Monday.

It’s been  reported that “FedEx is forecasting a 13 percent increase in shipping this holiday season as compared with last; UPS predicts a 10 percent increase; and the U.S. Postal Service expects a whopping 20 percent jump in the number of packages shipped between Thanksgiving and Christmas.”

 

8. FedEx Corporation ( FDX, Earnings, Analysts, Financials): Provides transportation, e-commerce, and business services in the United States and internationally. Market cap at $27.18B.

“FedEx predicts it will ship 280 packages, an increase from the 247 million packages last year.” FedEx says it will add  20,000 holiday workers to handle the 13% boost

 

9. United Parcel Service, Inc. ( UPS, Earnings, Analysts, Financials): Provides transportation, logistics, and financial services in the United States and internationally. Market cap at $67.1B.

“UPS expects to move 527 million packages between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, exceeding last year’s record of 480 million packages.”

 

Online Shopping:

10. eBay Inc. ( EBAY, Earnings, Analysts, Financials): Provides online marketplaces for the sale of goods and services, as well as other online commerce, platforms, and online payment solutions to individuals and businesses in the United States and internationally. Market cap at $60.2B.

eBay’s PayPal will be in overdrive as consumers use the payment service for online shopping. eBay will also be offering “eBay Deals” on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The particulars of the deals are “coming soon” according to its site. They will start November 19 at 8am PT.

 

11. Amazon.com Inc. ( AMZN, Earnings, Analysts, Financials): Operates as an online retailer in North America and internationally. Market cap at $99.92B.

Amazon and eBay are two of the biggest online retailers. Deals offered there will give investors an idea on trending consumer goods.
