Citi sees 'tricky' setup into FedEx's Q1 results
Citi analyst Christian Wetherbee thinks the setup is "tricky" into FedEx's Q1 results next week. The stock has rallied off the post-cyber-attack lows into what should be a "messy" quarter, Wetherbee tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. He estimates the earnings per share impact of the TNT cyber-attack to be in the 50c-$1.00 range for FY18. As a result, Wetherbee expects FedEx to cut its full-year guidance. He recommends buying the shares on any post-earnings weakness, however. The company's long-term story "remains quite attractive," Wetherbee writes. He keeps a Buy rating on FedEx with a $235 price target and continues to see long-term value of $260-$290 per share.
