Analyze FedEx's stock value. This will include analysis of the company's present P/E, PEG, P/B, and P/S multiplies versus competitors (UPS/DHL) in the industry and versus historic multiples going over the past 1,3, and 5-year periods. Offer an opinion as to the current pricing of the company's stock. Assess FedEx's fixed-income makeup. Please identify the bonds that the company has issued, the amounts of those bonds, their structure, their various due dates, and their various interest rates.

Like the breakeven point, the payback period captures a specific moment in a project's life cycle. But while breakeven analysis helps managers make intelligent decisions about working capital and liquidity, payback analysis is designed to highlight the efficiency, profitability and time value of a project. More specifically, the payback period is the length of time before investors recoup all of the costs incurred to make a project happen.
