Why Federal Express Comments were Taken so Negative …. Tentacles …

There are bell weather companies that have enough respect, when they speak the ripple effects are great. Last week Federal Express announced very negative earnings expectations and Wall Street took note.

Why Federal Express Caused Such Waves

Long time followers know we rarely speak of individual companies, but in this case wanted to explain the cause and effects of not only Federal Express but Capital Market movement post comments as well.

Here is what happened:

  • Federal Express cut earnings expectations by almost half
  • The new CEO says he expects “Worldwide Recession”
  • Cites dramatic slowdown near the end of the quarter

With tentacles across the globe and such strong words by the CEO, fear of contagion spread into markets.

Have a Great “Fed Ex” Cause and Effects Day!

Vote of Confidence….SEC says “OK” to Twitter, Facebook and others….J.K. Financial, Inc. Opens Comments

As we first stumbled into our writings several years ago (raw then…we are learning now…..some may say still raw…..numbers people…haha), comments here on our site, were, and have been, turned off, UNTIL NOW.  The SEC, embracing social technology, has changed their view and ours!Comment

www.street-cents.com Comments are turned on!

In a sign of the times, the SEC has allowed publicly traded companies to begin sending information via twitter (we are huge fans and have a network of folks we follow) Facebook and other social sites. Certainly this is a game changer of confidence and a sign of the times.

You may be asking why so late?

We are conservative by nature, and as such would rather be safe than sorry.  Holding off on comments until greater acceptance gave us comfort until social gained further acceptance.

Our promise to you on your comments

If a comment adds value to a post or is with merit, reasonable, and polite, it will be posted.  If a question is asked we will have a personal professional answer by one of us.

So let the comments begin, we look forward to your thoughts!

Have a Great Day!
