U.S. trade deficit reaches lowest level in months
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. trade deficit fell sharply in March to $54.99 billion, the lowest level in six months, as U.S. exports climbed to an all-time high. Imports declined, reflecting in part a slowdown in clothing shipments from China. The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that the gap between what the United States imports and what it sells to foreign countries narrowed by 9.2 percent from a record monthly deficit of $60.57 billion set in February.

UPS annouces growth ahead of projections
ATLANTA -- UPS Inc., the world's largest shipping carrier, reiterated its profit growth guidance for the year but said total volume growth for the second quarter is ahead of earlier projections. Its shares rose more than 3 percent. Executives of the Atlanta-based company said at an investor conference in New York on Wednesday that they expect full-year profit growth to be in the range of 16 percent to 20 percent over the adjusted $2.90 a share reported for 2004. That is the same guidance the company gave when it reported first-quarter earnings last month.
