UPS doesn¡¦t seem like it deserves a BOB premium because its only has 15% higher net income than FedEx where the BOB premium companies average over 200% higher net income than the industrial comparable. But, since the last year¡¦s net income was negatively affected by the tax court ruling we believe their net income in 1999 should be looked at without this one time write off against their net income which would bring their net income more closer to what the BOB premium companies average. Conclusion We believe the UPS¡¦s actual market capitalization and stock value lies somewhere between $17,520 million and $30,415 million. Although we believe that UPS shouldn¡¦t be fully valued using the BOB premium because of the uncertain future business and financial prospects, we also don¡¦t think just using FedEx¡¦s multiples as benchmark for the UPS¡¦s value captures the true market capitalization value for UPS.
