Shares of FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX) slipped more than 5% on Friday after reporting earnings per share of $4.59 in Q3 2022, below estimates of $4.64.

The net income and revenue in the third quarter of 2022 still rose by almost 30% and 10%, respectively.

Despite the market decline in the stock, the company’s own guidance shows that FDX is not an outright sell. The company reaffirmed its FY22 earnings per share of between $20.50 to $21.50. The guidance is a testimony that FedEx believes in its own profitability story.

As the Omicron-related impacts wane, FedEx could be on its way to reclaiming the previous highs. The technical analysis also supports a higher price for FDX.

Technically, FDX support is established at $219. At the current price of around $217, the stock is trading slightly below the support but not sufficient enough to be called a breakout. It should be noted that the stock was trading at a high of $229 the previous day in a bullish momentum that was developing before the earnings.

Concluding thoughts

Although FedEx reported below-estimate earnings, it still had a robust quarter, as shown by the rise in earnings. The stock is trading at a key level as it takes a break following the earnings.

We are still optimistic that the stock will regain the bullish rally and rise up to $242. However, the price and daily candlestick should close above the support of $219 to consider a bullish rally imminent.
