How Did the US Airline Industry Perform in 1Q16?
(Continued from Prior Part)
Delta Air Lines (DAL) has a “buy” rating of 93.3% by the analysts tracking the stock, the highest among all the airlines. Delta is followed by Spirit Airlines (SAVE), with 80% of the analysts recommending a “buy” and 20% recommending a “hold.”
Plus, 73% of analysts recommend a “buy” on American Airlines (AAL) while 27% recommend a “hold.” United Airlines (UAL) also has 71% analysts recommending a “buy” and 29% recommending a “hold.” Both Southwest Airlines (LUV) and JetBlue (JBLU) have 67% of the analysts recommending a “buy” and 33% recommending a “hold.” Alaska Air Group (ALK) has 50% recommending a “buy” and 50% recommending a “hold.” None of the analysts have a “sell” rating for any of the above airlines.
Allegiant Travel (ALGT) is the only airline to have a “sell” rating from a few analysts. Of these analysts, 46% recommend a “buy” on ALGT, 46% recommend a “hold,” and 8% recommend a “sell.”
According to the Bloomberg consensus 12-month target prices, Delta Air Lines currently has the highest return potential of 45%, followed closely by UAL at 43%. The next in line is American Airlines with a 36% return potential, followed by Allegiant Travel
Look at Ford. F beat earning and reaffirm next quarter guidance. Stock drops. Imagine if TIF misses earning and lower the guidance.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
TIF is re testing its 52 wks low.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Do your own DD. I agree with him completely. Hear him out why he think TIF is a sell on CNBC. Anyone who has common sense would have agreed with him.
What does it mean? People expect BBY to miss earning?
Retail sector has been an extremely challenging and difficult sector. Most people are into saving and conserving their cash. Amazon appears to rule most of the business among the retail business.
Now what? adding more at $9.00 and I am not happy.
And have been adding more shares into 2016 ever since. A lot of insiders purchases between $3 to $4 as well following Tencent purchases. Really hope to see this stock to recover back up to $7 someday.
JetBlue Airways is a low-cost airliner that mainly serves US destinations. JetBlue is a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), and it has a market cap of $5.91 billion. JBLU stock is not as volatile as most stocks, since it has a beta of just 0.56.
JetBlue trades at a forward PE of 7.89, which is less than the average PE of 8.36 for airliners. JBLU has a price-to-sales of 0.88 and PEG of 0.58, so it could be a bargain right now.
This year, JetBlue’s earnings and sales are projected to grow by 19.01% and 4.86% respectively. JBLU has a debt-to-capital of 28.07%, so it is not too leveraged by any means. The company has beaten our EPS consensus estimate in each of the last four quarters. Just last quarter, the corporation beat our consensus by 11.32%.
I'll say TIF has room to fall below $60 from here.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
This stock has been targeted by shorts.
More signs and indications that stock is going down are the whole bunch of insiders selling last month between $69 to $71. They knew stock is going to fall and they all tried to sell before it tanks.
The CFO announced to resign to take effect this week is another warning sign of its cash flow and balance sheet.
I think the street is playing airline stocks based on forward looking. If they believe OPEC is going to freeze the oil inventory and to push the oil price higher into $50, that will increase the airlines' cost. Meanwhile, there are increasing price war among the airline travels. It is a difficult market to invest.
