Diamonds and Dogs


FedEx Corporation (FDX)

FedEx might see some of their shareholders ship out today, as they're down 5.3% at $100.82 midday today. The transportation, e-commerce, and business services company also announced their awful third quarter performance, where their profit fell 31%. This decline occurred because customers shifted towards slower, less expensive international air-shipping options. FedEx said their net income fell to $361 million, or $1.13 per share, during this quarter, which ended Feb. 28. That's down from $521 million, or $1.65 per share, a year earlier.
