UPS: "UPS second quarter results were below our expectations as a result of disappointing performance in freight forwarding and a slight miss in International package. Going forward, UPS is focused both on our long-term strategy and adapting to changing market conditions. Looking toward the back half of the year, although global economic expectations have been lowered, UPS expects growth in adjusted diluted earnings per share of 4-13% over the same period last year," Kurt Kuehn, CFO.
