NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer is taking a look at some of the best ways to play the transport sector.
He referred to FDX as an "anointed stock," meaning market participants seem to think the stock can do no wrong.
However, just because it's an anointed stock doesn't mean it's the cheapest. Cramer called United Parcel Service (UPS) the less-expensive stock in terms of valuation.
Because of this, he suggested investors buy FDX ahead of its earnings report on Wednesday, via deep-in-the-money call options.
Going long FDX ahead of earnings is the trade, while UPS is the better long-term investment for now, he concluded.-- Written by Bret Kenwell in Petoskey, Mich. Follow @BretKenwell
