According to the feature, FedEx has “a growing footprint in big overseas markets like China, enough operating leverage to boost earnings when volumes ramp up and solid growth at its very profitable FedEx Ground unit.”

FedEx reported in September that its 2010 fiscal first-quarter earnings fell 53%.
