UPS - United Parcel Service, Inc.

Posted on the 30 September 2011 by Divstkforcomman @DivStkForComMan

UPS has been around since I was a little tike. I remember them parking in front of my house and leaving a fresh package for my Mom. Ah, those were the days. Now a days not much has changed. Just the other day a UPS guy parked in front of my next door neighbors house and walked up the lawn. They are always on time, polite, and efficient. You know why I like them today? Their dividend of course! UPS pays a solid quarterly dividend of $0.52 per share, that's a 3.22% dividend yield (as of September 29th, 2011 close). Free money in the bank every three months!
UPS actually stands for United Parcel Service, Inc. They are one of the best package delivery companies in the world. They deliver letters, documents and packages to more than 220 countries and territories worldwide. In February 2011, the Company announced the expansion of its UPS Express Freight service into Israel and Slovakia.
UPS is well-positioned to benefit from the increase in online shopping. UPS is often the default mode of shipping from online retailers. The continuing move towards online shopping will result in sustained growth for many years to come. I am a huge fan of customer service. I have never had an issue with any package delivery by UPS. I can't say the same for FedEx. I'm not a FedEx hater, but the brown truck rolling up the street delivers results whether it is delivering my Christmas online shopping purchases or whether delivering that healthy quarterly dividend! Their slogan is "What Can Brown Do For You?" I say continue to pay your dividend and increase it up and up and up. Purchase some UPS for the long term and you will see a solid 3%+ growth year over year.
