FedEx (NYSE: FDX) reported better-than-expected results for its first quarter of fiscal 2021. Non-GAAP earnings of $4.87 per share and revenue of $19.3 billion crushed the market’s estimates. Analysts had expected the logistics giant to earn $2.69 per share on revenue of $17.55 billion. FDX stock rose about 6% in the extended trading hours.
Yesterday, FedEx increased its shipping rates for its subsidiaries FedEx Express, FedEx Ground and FedEx Freight Services with effect from January 4, 2021.
