AAL was $53.63, DAL $49.19, and LUV wa only $42.32 at beginning of 2015.
No wonder Parker and Kirby want to go back 2015.
LUV seems to have something to say Tomorrow.
The oil is already higher, the oil has bottom in February, Airlines have raised rates a couple of times in the past, even with some cheating, the lagging effect is 6-9 months, it worked before as Parker believes. Uncle agrees with everyone!
You're too boring, go play Pokermon Go!
Uncle loves Japanese and Korean stuff.
Uncle is back to all-time high, without much help from Airlines, but it's fine they're for 4Q and beyond.
"Julie is not going to admit her mistake in the recent downgrade but is changing her tone."
What you read on the Barron's was her comment on the Boston Conference; Julie has the habbit of chasing the management for "more details" to get the "Edge" over Other Fish.
On the Weekly comment, she maintainted her "cuatious Tone" with "All" things "considered".
"Yates expects the airlines to experience increased costs without the benefit of increased unit revenue, which is a
headwind that she does not believe is FULLY priced in by the consensus."
King Fish is more "Creative", he's already onto the Next "Killing Field (LOVE II?)".
"FLL airport (Fort Lauderdale) is expanding under the ‘FLL Airport Improvement and Renovations (FLLAIR)’ project, completed by 2H17. We estimate FLLAIR will increase capacity at FLL by ~22% and surely create new competition. Some investors have expressed angst that this is another Dallas given AAL’s hub in MIA and the presence of SAVE and LUV at FLL. Our view: this will result in skirmishes we think the impact to overall domestic pricing will be small compared to the Dallas fiasco.... "
//Doesn't seem as though fundamentals matter at all in oil.//
More about Fun and Mentals, not Fun.da.mentals.
When there are way more Call buyers than Put buyers at or near $35 expiring prices, the market decides it is more reasonable to screw the callers really good.
It's simply Business Decision... Unless there's some sort of conspiracy going on that they're the call buyers themselves, that'll be Insider Job which is disgusting thing they don't want to be accused of.
7 Straight weeks of Rigs addition and 17 huge increase last week finally Slowed down the Short Covering.
Conspiracy and Manipulation are very common with the Oil Trading, it's all legal till somebody get caught, but who's going to catch whom? Even Golden Sucks wants to be the King of Gold these days, it was the Old Derivative King JPM's crown. Can they get along without Rodney King?
Well, that's about $6.74/share plus 40c dividend, it's like a $7 earnings on $35 stock.
If you look at it that way.
//speaking of relative strength, AAL is quickly gaining on DAL and LUV in stock price //
They're going on a field trip to Uncle's 6x6 "Great Wall" of America...
// I have seen many investors quit good investment situations due to price fluctuation. //
It ain't what you Say but what you think that matters; AAL is a Stock, Airlines is an industry/sector, if you think it's a good investment you simply SIT on it and make money with your arsss. There is nothing to it.
This is just a Cyclical Sector that's "temporarily" out of favor, it's supposed to be Boring for a while. Uncle is Always Here, in good time and in bad time, since Uncle has nothing more interesting to do other than it's so addictive once you get into Internet Chatting. Ha!
Don't worry, be Happy, AAL has turned the corner with better relative Strength than its peers, and this is just another Weekly Option Expiration day.
Yeah, I see Parker swinging all the time, is this training season for Baseball or what?
//Why would you refer to individual shareholders as "bagholders"?//
You can call anything anything, names don't matter. It's odd that you go to a baseball game and declare you're the winner in the 2nd or 3rd inning when you're 2-3 points behind.
This is NOT a Baseball Game!
AAL sounded most positive among all attended the Conference; don't understand why Yates didn't give it an upgrade. Anyone who has account with Schwab should check it out. It's not under Company Reports, it's under "Related Industry Reports" dated 8/10/2016
One thing Uncle doesn't understand about the "helping hands", maybe you guys can explain it to me?
"The interim TWU-IAM contract signed last Friday unlocks "helping hands"
which allows ex-AA ground workers to service ex-US equipment and vice versa, a key
part of unlocking the $300M of fleet synergies originally estimated in the merger. Flight
operating system implementation in October'16 will be the last key to unlocking fleet
If you think you're bored, you can think how bored those life guards are. Don't know why they even need life guards; it's kind of silly. Ok, back to real stuff. From Boston Transports Conference hosted by CS. Uncle will only talk about AAL related stuff.
1) Domestic yield environment stabilizing. Airlines noted that September visibility is
still low with
