FedEx has appreciated more than 90% in 2020. Will it hit a ceiling soon?
FedEx is one of those companies, like Zoom, that has been able to benefit from the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The parcel company has just presented its results for the second quarter of its fiscal year and has beaten analysts' forecasts by billing more than $20 billion for the first time.
Shares of FedEx, the world's largest transportation company, have appreciated more than 93% above $292 so far this year, driven by the boom in online shopping during lockdowns. This bullish rally was most pronounced after the initial crash in financial markets, when the coronavirus pandemic broke out. At that time, the stock fell to $90 and, from there, began a vertical rise that continues today.
However, after knowing the results, shares fell almost 3% in the pre-opening of the market. The company hasn’t established clear forecasts for the current quarter due to uncertainty, but expects growth to continue in 2021.
