FedEx Earnings Preview: Still Bullish, But It's A Mid-2022 Recovery

The stock has underperformed the SP 500 dramatically this year, which should start to change in calendar '22. Hold the stock for a mid-'22 recovery. The valuation is reasonable at 10x forward earnings and the "price-to-sales" metric puts FDX currently at a 25%-30% discount to fair value. The February '22 quarter is a very tough compare - we might see some cautious guidance Thursday night.
