Service of delivery United Parcel Service Inc. (NYSE: UPS) boosted revenue by about 6% year on year in the most recent reporting period. However, a possible recession might harm businesses, as it has in the past.
In the most recent quarter, United Parcel Service’s earnings per share increased by 7.5% year over year, outpacing sales growth. Furthermore, the business maintained its full-year outlook and announced an increase in the share repurchase programme. However, this does not rule out the possibility that the delivery service could experience difficulties in the future months as a result of rising prices and a possible recession.

If the US Federal Reserve continues to raise interest rates, economic growth would stall, but inflation will fall. However, if the regulator does not act, the economy may enter a slump. During prior economic downturns, United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) was unable to maintain needed financial performance. Profits decreased steadily throughout the early-2000s recession and significantly during the recession from 2007 to 2009.
Despite the fact that the delivery service has increased its business in recent years, such as in e-commerce, it is still susceptible. As income falls, so does the amount of purchases made on the Internet.
Another key danger for United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) is rising payroll expenses. So far, the corporation has been able to offset expenses by raising prices, but the economic slump may make it more difficult to pass on more costs to customers without repercussions.
As a result, a recession can cause two concerns: dropping demand and rising expenses, and United Parcel Service must therefore be prepared to solve both issues promptly in order to minimise problems in the short term. These factors are expected to boost volatility in United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) stock.
