A FedEx spokeswoman said Tuesday that a power interruption at the company's technology center in Memphis, Tennessee, affected online-support functions. She said the company was talking to affected customers but didn't know how many there were.

Shares of Memphis-based FedEx Corp. rose 53 cents to $208.90 in midday trading Tuesday after losing 95 cents Monday. The stock is up 12 percent in 2017.
