I worked for Skywest while I was in college for
over three years in the Mid to late 80's. I bought as
much stock as I could during this period (this was
when it traded in the single digits). They always
treated me fairly and I felt like there was a serious
I sold my stock in the early 90's
for a nice profit but I'm proud of their progress and
I'm confident their management will find a way to
compete with whatever challenges that may come. They have
a conservative yet professional culture that may
seem too passive, but that fact is that it works!!!
Good Luck Skywest!!
If SKYW was DOA, then why would the analysts
continue to rate them a buy? Company has low debt,
projected earnings growth of 17% per year over next five
years (15.2% of which they can achieve without taking
on more debt or issuing more stock), and a forward
P/E ratio that is about a third of what the average
S&P500 company is reporting. Furthermore, the company
has no unions, minimal fuel price risk, codesharing
arrangements with two of the nation's largest airlines, and
the possibility of acquiring additional
Yeah, this sounds like a lousy investment to me.
Everyone should dump their shares immediately and buy
I love these boards! Reading them makes me
realize why I have made money trading stocks over the
years -- most people don't have a clue as to what they
You should study a bit more. Skywest
has 35 new jets on order, 25 for UAL and another 10
for Delta. Plus options for 30 more.
SKYW is a
well run company which will make money for you if you
know how to play it.
Your post only confirms the
old adage, "...open mouth, insert foot."
Ual takes care of itself.Air wisc., is in charged
ACAI had to put their jets with
Dal,meaning that Skyw is not goint to have jets with
Ual,because of scope clause.
Will Dal give routes to Skyw
? do no think so.
So what is Skyw going to do ?
Fly emb 120?.
American Eagle wil be all over the
And by the time Skyw orders other jets, they will be
at the en of the list.
do you think this company is dead? How come
they're going to get killed on the west coast? By who?
Their routes are secure thru at least 2006 with UAL.
Company is making money. This lull is historical if you
follow this stock year to year. Stock price will start
moving up the second week of October as earnings are
about to be announced. UAL is having a analyst meeting
this week. They're contemplating 10 new gates at
Denver. Is this fortelling something for SKYW? Hope so.
I own a lot of Comair and am wondering whether to
add SKYW. SKYW seems to be way behind the RJ curve
with all their crummy turboprops, has much higher
costs than COMR, lower revenues per ASM. On the plus
side, being non-union helps and there is cash per share
of $6. Why SKYW over COMR?
