Why it's admired
FedEx hasn't bounced back from the recession as quickly as it would like. The shipping giant recently had to scale back its quarterly profit forecast due to a rise in fuel costs and expenses (blame the harsh winter).

On the other hand, businesses continue to rely on FedEx for timely deliveries and high-quality service. In February, the company completed the acquisition of AFL Pvt. Ltd., expected to strengthen its efforts in India and China. Emerging markets such as these have kept FedEx growing in the recent past. --D.R.
