The shares of United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS) remain too expensive for us to buy despite our desire to add one more dividend growth stock to our taxable account portfolio. Unfortunately, we missed out on our chance to buy the company’s shares earlier in 2016 when an overall market sell off presented us with the opportunity to purchase the shares under $100. UPS shares not only broke down under $100, such shares actually slid down to below $90 for a brief time. Unfortunately, since the sell off in UPS shares early in 2016, the company’s shares have showed extraordinary strength and rose to a 52-week high late in 2016. Of course, we say “unfortunate” with respect to potential UPS shareholders and not current UPS shareholders. Fortunately, UPS’ shares have begun to break down very late in 2016, and with a little luck and a sharper overall market sell off in 2017, UPS shares are likely to drop towards a more value-oriented share price of $100 or lower. The likely cause of the beginning of a recent sell off in the company’s shares is investor disappointment in the late December 2016 earnings results of its competitor Federal Express (NYSE:FDX). FDX’s quarterly earnings results came in below earnings guidance and its margins declined. A brief look further into FDX’s results may provide an early look into where UPS’ next quarterly results may be headed.

Nintendo has a new stockholder: Shares of video game console maker Nintendo (NTDOY) rose slightly on news asset manager BlackRock (BLK) owns a 5.17% stake. With the new Nintendo Switch console being met with strong demand, the disclosure shouldn’t come as a shocker. If there is anything I have learned from covering Nintendo through the years, it’s that when the stock gets hot it tends to stay hot until something causes investors to reverse course. Nintendo’s stock is up 23% in the last three months, but look for more gains in the short-term.
