I agree, I sold out 2000 of my 3000 shares in pre market at $43.83 & $43.80. No growth at all in this stock. AAl is just fuel tank in the air.
Why would I? Am long 3000 shares at $39.25. Just because I post negative on the message board doesn't mean am holding a short position. Besides I posted that I cover at $39.50. Good luck on your 10 shares you own at $55. Lol...

.S. Available seating will increase by no more than 0.5 percent, United said in a statement Thursday as it posted a second-quarter profit that matched analysts’ estimates. The capacity plan compares with a 1.4 percent boost in the first half.
United’s move aligns the world’s second-biggest carrier with American Airlines Group Inc. and Delta Air Lines Inc., which also are curbing expansion. As discounters led by Spirit Airlines Inc. pile on flights, average U.S. coach fares are slumping, with an 8 percent decline in the year ended in June, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
The stock repurchase should be completed by the end of 2017, United said.
Second-quarter earnings excluding one-time items of $3.31 share were in line with average of 16 analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Sales were $9.91 billion.

If you think there well be a bounce, forget! LOCK offers absolute no more protection then your bank does. This will trade under $5. This law suite will take at least a year to resolve, dead money at best.
Today, the FTC claims LifeLock violated the 2010 order by "1) failing to establish and maintain a comprehensive information security program to protect its users’ sensitive personal data, including credit card, social security, and bank account numbers; 2) falsely advertising that it protected consumers’ sensitive data with the same high-level safeguards as financial institutions; and 3) failing to meet the 2010 order’s recordkeeping requirements."
