my comment that AAL stock had peaked for this cycle, was not referring to anything related to the French terrorist events. It merely is an indisputable fact, and occurred quite some time ago, despite the low fuel prices that have evolved in the last year. Seasoned airline investors and buy side analysts who assess a comprehensive picture have noted the obvious factors which I would attempt to list at this time. Nevertheless, even a simple look at the stock chart shows the peaking long ago. One can see that without going out on the limb and predicting a big demise.
perhaps, but there will likely be significantly better days than today.
And that is not addressing the other significant issue about the wisdom of having to borrow money to do the buybacks, which AAL is essentially doing , as they are carrying large amount of debt, and they also have need of a large capital expenditure to modernize the fleet etc.
One can argue either side of the issues, but One thing seems clear, AAL stock has likely peaked for this cycle.
