    Stock Price

    This company consistently makes money and continues to grow. After the acquisition of AirTran sales will be close to 15 BILLION $$$$$, and WS just yawns. Up one % down one % on a daily basis. LUV could be netting, according to projections, over ONE BILLION per year in profits in 2011 and 2012. WS yawns......

      Everyone YAWNS. Delta just made ONE BILLION in ONE QUARTER. Southwest is a garbage stock. Oh yeah, DAL has the same number of outstanding shares Ibesh.

      First thing to remember , is WS cares about stock volatility over how well a company is run. With 700+ million shares SWA moves much more slowly than many other companies. Second, and just as important IMO, is that the analyst comments are primarily designed to get that volatility moving--and they don't really care what direction, because they make their money off of the buying/selling. Think of the "house" rake in a poker game, with the dealer talking up the betting to the players.

      WS sucks, they're in it for themselves, and you listen to them with a hefty dose of cynicism if you're smart, IMO.
