UPS Says 2Q Profit Smaller Than Analysts Expected

Friday, 12 Jul 2013 09:11 AM

UPS says its second-quarter earnings will be hurt as customers use cheaper options.

The package delivery and logistics company also says it's seeing a slowdown in the U.S. industrial economy.

United Parcel Service Co. says its second quarter earnings per share will be $1.13. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had been expecting $1.20 per share.

UPS stock is down $4.60, or 5 percent, to $86.85 in premarket trading.

It says it expects the same trends to continue, and it's adapting to meet those conditions. It cut guidance for full-year earnings to a range of $4.65 to $4.85 per share. That's more than it earned last year. But it's lower than the $4.98 per share that analysts had been expecting.

The company will release full results on July 23.
