There are two very important factors to note about Aviation Industries (AVIA). First, the Company currently has the net assets to qualify for a listing on the NASDAQ Small-Cap market. aviation Industries is well financed with solid cash in the bank. The Company is also debt free with no liabilities. Additional support and volume should increase as Aviation Industries applies for a higher listing on the NASDAQ or American Stock Exchange. Secondly, the airline industry just completed its most profitable year ever. As CNN recently reported, the number of trips by Americans is on the rise. Approximately 600 million trips were taken by air in 1996 and that is expected to rise to over a billion over the next year and a half. Profits in 1997 for the airline industry are expected to top $4.0 billion. Airlines are consistently raising fares, which are providing additional profits for the companies, and this trend is expected to continue. Over the past year, airline stocks have outperformed the Dow Jones Industrial and that trend is also expected to continue. Over the past 6 months, many major US brokerage houses have issued BUY RECOMMENDATIONS on many airline stocks as the industry outlook remains extremely positive.
