FedEx price target lowered to $236 from $263 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry lowered his price target for FedEx to $236 from $263 due to lower base year EBIT and a higher discount rate. Global growth seems to have peaked and while trade rhetoric is undoubtedly a major factor contributing to weaker economic growth, perhaps the more concerning element at play for FedEx's international biz is the material mix shift at legacy TNT toward lower margin traffic, she contends. For this reason, Landry is admittedly less constructive on the stock. However, the analyst also thinks there is reason to believe that the stock could be close to washed out. To the extent that the bad news is now out of the way, Landry continues to think that the downside risk remains limited and reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
