Gearing this new year in the right trend, I would like to share my recent purchase in United Parcel Service, Inc. (UPS). This stock has been on my watch lists for a few years now and I got an excellent opportunity to buy shares at a great price a few months back. When looking back at the chart, I got an average of 2014-2015 price levels. This company is a truly hold forever type of company with solid fundamentals, excellent entry point and bright outlook as people more and more around the world having their purchases sent to their homes. I know I do as well as my neighbors!
