NEW YORK,  March 15, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Today, Investors Alliance announced new research reports highlighting Universal
Display Corporation (NASDAQ: PANL), LG Display Co Ltd. (NYSE: LPL), United
Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE: UPS), FedEx Corporation (NYSE: FDX) and Molina
Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: MOH). Today's readers may access these reports free of

Universal Display Corporation Research Report

After the announcement of Samsung that it will begin using Universal Display
Corporation's materials in the upcoming Galaxy 5 phone scheduled to enter
production this February, the shares of Universal Display soared nearly 10
percent, with an outperform rating. The Galaxy 5 will have full HD AMOLED
displays and the company's green PHOLEDs will be part of the production process.
Analysts expect the results to show up on Q2 revenues. The long-term contract
between the two companies is until 2017. Universal Display has a strong patent
portfolio behind organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, a technology
that may dominate the displays of the future. This patent portfolio is likely to
continue to generate royalty and license revenue, and is positioned to profit
from strong sales of tablets, smartphones, and TVs. Display manufacturers are
committing themselves to OLED technology as it has significant benefits over
traditional LCD display technology. Samsung is investing  $6.4 billion; more
than Universal Display's market cap of  $1.24 billion, in OLED facilities while
cutting investments in half to  $1.8 billion. The OLED market is forecasted to
top  $34 billion  by 2019, signifying massive long-term opportunities for
Universal Display. Aside from Samsung, LG Electronics and Sony are also entering
the OLED market. Being the leading OLED manufacturer, Universal Display is
likely the choice supplier for these companies. If ever they also offer a
long-term contract, Universal Display's company will be secure. The Full

LG Display Co Ltd. Research Report

With the OLED invasion, LCD panel makers may be put at risk. Korea-based LG
Display Co Ltd., world's largest LCD panel maker, has recently reported its Q4
2012 earnings. The results are strong, but the outlook is disappointing.  The
company announced that for Q1 2013, panel shipments are expected to register a
percentage drop. Another concern for the company is the decreasing demand for
iPhones, as well as declining TV sales. To offset the declining sales in the TV,
LG Display is banking on growth in the smartphone market. Although Apple's
outlook is disappointing, the overall smartphone market is expected to have
strong growth this year. LG Display is focusing on its OLED TV business this
year, spending at least  two trillion Korean Won  for R&D activities and
facilities related to OLED. Analysts have downgraded the company's shares from a
neutral rating to an underperform rating, with  $10.80  price target. The Full

United Parcel Service, Inc. Research Report

According to the US Postal Service, this approach is developed to understand the
customers' delivery needs and to generate significant cost savings.
Approximately 70 percent of Americans support this new delivery schedule as a
cost-saving mechanism for the government organization. The original proposal
also included halting Saturday deliveries for packages, but the six-day schedule
is maintained due to the 14 percent boost over the past few years. Businesses,
including newspapers and magazines, will be forced to rethink how they would
reach their customers on weekends. The new delivery schedule of the US Postal
Service could open up opportunities and new market share for UPS and FedEx,
couriers that both offer premium Saturday delivery. UPS is the world's largest
delivery company, both by volume and revenue. Driven by e-commerce, package
volume continues to increase. The company could gain customers for its
continuing focus on customers, six days a week. Revenue is expected to increase
five percent in 2013 and six percent in 2014. The Full Research Report on United
Parcel Service, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and
price targets - is available to download free of charge at:


FedEx Corporation Research Report

FedEx is the largest express shipping company in the world, competing with the
US Postal Service in both ground service and express service segments. Its 2012
revenue increased nine percent, and EPS increased 40 percent. Revenue is
expected to increase four percent in 2013 and six percent in 2014.Although
analysts believe that this change will have minimal effect on private couriers;
the long-term impact is still to be determined. UPS is scheduled to release its
Q1 2013 earnings results in  April 25, and FedEx will release its Q3 2013
earnings results on  March 20. The Full Research FedEx Corporation - including

Molina Healthcare, Inc. Research Report

Molina Healthcare reported significant EPS movement in Q4 2012, compared to the
same quarter in 2011. With the strong Q4 profit (more than twice analysts'
expectations), The Street upgraded the stock from hold to buy. The recent
earnings of the company have been volatile, but analysts are seeing EPS growth
this year. Earnings last year was at  20 cents, versus FY 2011's  44 cents. For
FY 2013 the market expects earnings to come in at  $1.50  per share and revenue
of  $7 billion. "2012 was a difficult year, our achievements during the fourth
quarter have given us confidence as we look forward to 2013 and beyond," said
Molina Healthcare CEO. The strong Q4 profit is primarily due to Molina
Healthcare's cost cutting initiatives while modestly raising premiums in some
states. From its 90.6 percent medical-cost ratio in Q3, the company has managed
to cut the cost ratio to 86.1 percent. Improvement in  Texas  and  California 
also contributed to the solid Q4. The cost ratio change in  Texas  dropped to
77.8 percent, heightened by a four percent rate increase. In  California, rate
increases for ABD membership plans helped offset costs. Looking at the trend
that continued during Q4, Molina Healthcare's profit margins are improving.
Later this year the company's business in  Ohio  will be expanding as a contract
for dual-eligible Medicare and Medicaid members will take effect. On  May 1, the
company will report its Q1 2013 earnings results. The Full Research Report on
