Jim Cramer, chairman of TheStreet.com and host of CNBC’s Mad money, revealed on TheStreet that United Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE:UPS) is like a coiled spring, all set to pop.
Cramer also commented on the boldness of United Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE:UPS)’s move to go ahead and announce the hiring that it will be conducting, ahead of FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX), which is much bigger in size.
“[…] It’s so far behind FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX), yet it spent all that money to have a better holiday season. It just seems to me a ‘coiled spring’. I know people don’t like it, they all love fedex , but sometimes you got to buy something that is not loved in order to make money […],” said Cramer.
There were also two other factors which according to Cramer would translate into increased revenue volumes for United Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE:UPS). Firstly, the addition of operating days and secondly, the improved shipping tracking timing, both seem to be geared to meet the influx in demand for packaging delivery during the holiday season.

It is after all the world’s biggest IPO and the company has a fantastic future outlook.
