FDX stock news
“For the fiscal 2020 fourth quarter ended May 31, the company reported revenue of $17.4 billion, down from $17.8 billion a year earlier. But the latest number easily topped FactSet’s analyst consensus of $16.4 billion.
Still, that wasn’t enough to create profits. FedEx suffered a loss of $334 million in the latest quarter, or $1.28 per share, shrinking from a loss of $1.97 billion, or $7.56 per share, a year ago. Analysts expected earnings per share of $1.33 for the latest quarter.
Adjusted EPS totaled $2.53 in the latest quarter, blowing away analysts’ prediction of $1.58.”
