Wall Street Roundup: Is FedEx A Buy Ahead Of Earnings?

With the company set to release earnings on Wednesday, many FedEx Corporation (NYSE: FDX) traders are wondering how the stock will react to the latest earnings numbers. However, long-term investors are likely much more interested in the outlook for the company in terms of months and years, rather than days.

What’s in store for FedEx in the long run? Here’s what several big-name Wall Street firms have had to say about the stock recently.
