I agree with you & I've been posting this all last year. Anyone can close branches & cut staff. He not a banker & has never understood what it takes. It amazing that he's still running BAC. When is the board & major funds going to realize it. Disgraceful.
It's about AAL's debt. The other airlines have paid down their debt from the huge amounts of money they're making on the huge oil drop. Investors will invest in other airlines that's reducing their debt.
AAL will receive more savings from this last years oil fall, than any other airlines. The problem with the stock, Investors do not like debt ridden company. If management starts to reduce AAL's debt, then watch how it will be bought up. AAL has to much debt compared to the other airlines. Take some of the oil savings & pay off some debt & raise the dividend. To much cash is setting in AAL's bank account. WHY? Wake up management & look at what the other airlines are doing.
AAL investors have watched AAL's stock price from last year January 2015, do nothing but go down. It seems the only major buyer this last year, has been the buybacks from the company. With the company not being able to buy the stock back on this black period before earnings, most investors are buying the other airlines. SAVE, HA, DAL, LUV & even JBLU are being bought before AAL. Management needs to wake up & reduce the debt in AAL. Companies that have little or no debt like Exxon (XOM) have weathered this weeks oil drop. Investors do not like to invest in debt ridden companies in turbulent times. If Parker gets smart this earnings call, he will say, "AAL is paying off debt from the savings it made from this huge oil drop. "
As for trade in MU Mongo(Who names their child that), the fund takes positions & has stops. Sorry to tell you, we made a little on the trade. As I explained to Bears, the market gives at least 3 to 4 times a year to buy on dips & sell on the rips. My equity fund is up for the year. But thanks for being concerned. That's more than AAL's management would do for you.
Again, DAL is in the green just like it was on Monday. AAL is down again as it was on Monday. AAL sellers & major funds are buying DAL. A couple reasons why the money is buying DAL. DAL pays a dividend that they just announced to raise that dividend. DAL is in the S&P & major funds have to buy. DAL's management knows what investors & share holders want, Return on their money. DAL does not have hidden problems that AAL could have with labor unions. DAL makes a better return on their planes & has a larger load factor. I like them both & own them both but just do not like the way the officers & CEO of AAL continues to sell their free shares. Not a way to lead the way for people & funds that want to buy or who own the stock at this time.
Agree again with you. DAL was behind AAL by about $2.50 dollars & today DAL is ahead of AAL by a little more than $1.00. That's a $3.50 swing. DAL's CEO did not take out $25 Million in the first 3 months of this year either. The CEO at DAL knows how to excite investors & make money now for them. You don't hear in 18 t0 24 months we might be up to new highs. He thinks today & investors like that type of movement. There's to much playing in the stock market with computer trading & the big funds moving markets in big swings. I still say, if the CEO of AAL would go into the market & buy some shares with his own money, AAL would get a good bounce to the up side.
That's well said. I've been saying the same thing for a long time. Having the cash in the bank these days is worthless. Pay debt down, buy stock if one thinks it's at a cheap price, do something & let investors get on board again. Again, I agree with you completely.
By the way bear, carr is not secur. I've read carr & agree with that poster about AAL's management selling to many shares. If you did own the stock, you would agree too. If you don't agree, then you have your opinion just like every other poster on these sites. I know I've said this before to you, I think you're an adult & can pick & choose what you do. Don't read the post that seem to upset you. If you're a child, then you should be in school but I really think you're a gofer for the management of AAL. You seem to defend them about their ton of selling of AAL's stock. Just don't read mine or carr's post. Other than that, I really Do Not Care What You Think or DO.
bear - worker for AAL. You have the right to ignore my post as an adult. I recommend you do it & shut the door. I remember what my parents look like & I know it's not you. As for paying me to stop, you do not have enough money because I do not take penny's & that's all you have in my opinion. By the way, you said you have 54 days until retirement. What type of job do you to sit at this AAL board all day & do nothing in the job you're at? I think you on welfare & that kinda #$%$ me off. I have to pay for your lazy butt. Ignore my post or shut the ____ up. You can fill in the words, you good at doing nothing.
AAL can not hold its gains today. DAL announces buy back & raises dividend. AAL announces code sharing with British Airways. Oh by the way, that was old news from about 3 months ago. WOW. AAL's leaders are really giving the investors what they want. All we are seeing is DAL kicking dirt on AAL while it takes off. I bet we see some selling from AAL's officers before we see a buy from anyone of them. SELL those FREE shares & take more money from AAL.
Out of bk less than six months ago. First AAMRQ did not go BK. about bringing out some news, how the CEO & his staff have bought shares of AAL rather than the CEO selling more than $25 MILLION dollars of AAL stock in the first 4 months of operation. Are you ok with that? By the way, that does not include the officers selling in those months & all the selling they got when before US Air took over AAMRQ. If that's ok with you , then you're one of the officers of AAL. As a investor that put my money up when I talk, I think this mass selling by the management was ridicules. I'm sure a lot of other investors & big funds did not like it either. Oh by the way, DAL's management has not been there that long but they do know how to run a company & know how to keep investors happy.
The CEO sold more $25 Million in AAL shares in the first 4 months. He shows 1,484,404 shares as April 22, 2014. He sold over 1/3 of his AAL. Now I would complain or bring this to the public but he sold them the first 4 months on the job. That does not look good nor does it make investors want to buy. He was already a very wealthy man from US Air & his past other airlines he was the CEO at. Why then sell so many shares of AAL if one truly believes he can build this company to the greatest ever. Witch in turn, would lead to new higher highs.
Yes, we can if AAL's CEO & managers stop selling & lead by example. DAL management knows how to treat investors. AAL's team is good & I believe in AAL's future but I'm not selling like the CEO & officers have been doing in the first 4 months of this new AAL.
I know you don't want to hear this. Yes, AAL is a young company but he management team needs to stop selling their free stock every qtr. they get it. If they truly believe that AAL's future is looking good then why sell so many shares. Are you selling or do you believe AAL's stock will go hirer? The way the management believe shows that they are short timers & want all they can get now. Yes,
DAL's management team knows how to treat investors. I like AAL & own both but my DAL is making me more money. Cramer just put a $60 price on AAL. Maybe the CEO & management of AAL will stop selling their free shares & hold them. AAL's team needs to bring out some new news & entice new investors & old investors want to buy more shares. If they keep selling their shares every qtr., then it means they do not believe the stock will go higher. Yes, I understand they need money but the amount of shares they've sold is ridicules. Buy & lead AAL to new highs management.
Just as thought, you are on the management team of AAL. The AMMRQ holders are happy if they want to sell & pay a lot of money to uncle sam but for long term holders, some of us are miffed at the action after the sloppy conf call. By the way, I've been a LLC long term hold of the shares around $10.00.
iahpx - read the post I sent back bperfett. Nothing again was directed at you unless you're management at AAL. All I'm saying to management is get in the game again. Yes, management does not care about stock prices until they get their free shares every quarter, so that they run to the market & sell them. How about doing something different & buy some shares like the rest of us, With your Own Money.
I knew I would get some poster to attack me even though I said nothing to attack them. You have to be an officer of AAL. Take your free shares each quarter & shut the door. Nonsense from you is interesting. I guess you think AAL is the favorite child of wall street. This stock has lost its luster with investors. By the way, AAL is not the best performer of the airlines stock. If you had AAMRQ then you made out like a bandit & if you didn't then you're in 4th place. Do you think DAL, SAVE, HA, LUV, JBLU are going down the same as AAL? OH yes, they have been going up since their earnings call. Do you know why? The management knows how to run a conf call. If you are management, then you would have come from LLC but now you're running a bigger venture & with more problems. Labor, Pilots & etc... I guess all that's going the way the management planned. NOT. Again, I did not get angry with you unless you truly are the management at AAL. All I've been sayings is, Believe in the company & by some shares & show the investment public & big funds you're willing to put your money where you mouth is. Talk the Talk then Walk the Walk. If you're another poster jumping on case, then do not read my post. You have that right as a adult to ignore them. If you can not do that, then Shut The Door.
