How to buy shares in Fedex

  1. Compare share trading platforms. To buy shares in a company listed in the US from Australia you'll need to find a trading platform that offers access to US stock markets. Look for a platform with low brokerage and foreign exchange fees.
  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, which will typically include your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
  3. Search for Fedex. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: FDX. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment that matches your financial goals.
  4. Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Fedex reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying using consistent intervals and amounts.
  5. Decide on how many to buy. At last close price of US$299.54, weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of Fedex, depending on your broker.
  6. Check in on your investment. Congratulations, you own a part of Fedex. Optimise your portfolio by tracking how your stock — and even the business — performs with an eye on the long term. You may be eligible for dividends and shareholder voting rights.

Have Fedex's shares ever split?

Fedex's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 May 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Fedex shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fedex shares which in turn could have impacted Fedex's share price.

Is it a good time to buy Fedex stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Fedex under- or over-valued?

Valuing Fedex stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fedex's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Fedex's P/E ratio

Fedex's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Fedex shares trade at around 17x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Fedex's PEG ratio

Fedex's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9556. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Fedex's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Fedex's EBITDA

Fedex's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$11.3 billion (£8.7 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Fedex's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Fedex share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Fedex's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$221.2956 up to US$302.41. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FDX.US volatility(beta: 1.19)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Fedex's is 1.194. This would suggest that Fedex's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

Fedex share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.97% of net profits

Recently Fedex has paid out, on average, around 28.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fedex shareholders could enjoy a 1.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fedex's case, that would currently equate to about $5.16 per share.

While Fedex's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Fedex may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Fedex's most recent dividend payout was on 8 July 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Fedex's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Fedex.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Fedex's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 19.26

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Fedex's overall score of 19.26 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 25th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Fedex is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Fedex's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.75/100

Fedex's environmental score of 3.75 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Fedex is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Fedex's social score

Social score: 10.02/100

Fedex's social score of 10.02 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Fedex is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Fedex's governance score

Governance score: 2.49/100

Fedex's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Fedex is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Fedex's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Fedex scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Fedex hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
