-- Overall profit rose 11.8% due to the extra business, although its U.S. business posted a decline in profit despite the higher demand due to the added costs and lower margins of delivering millions more packages to homes

-- Bernstein dubs UPS's third-quarter results as a "clean" beat but there are still some questions to the US business, where the huge spike in shipping volumes is coming with declining margin. The firm says the key for UPS will be its ability to charge more for residential deliveries, which it is doing in the form of surcharges and higher rates, but right now, it has to spend more to hire workers and on other costs to support the shipping boom
