UPS: "While there is some uncertainty around the magnitude of the holiday shopping season, we are confident in UPS's ability to deliver. As a result, we enhanced our guidance by narrowing the range, maintaining our previous midpoint. We anticipate 2012 adjusted diluted earnings per share to be within a range of USD4.55 to USD4.65, an increase of 5%-to-7% over 2011 adjusted results,” Kurt Kuehn, CFO.
