the nerdy looking filing that came out a week or two ago, this has been the best news in the last 6 months for HA. It looked like a news article that you would usually put on ignore. I may have to get fully back invested in HA tommorow if the market will let me without a big price. Hopefully UAL stock price will coroporate.
raised to 30 cents a share. This is 5 cents higher than after the the fourth quarter results when they where dropped to 25 cents a share. I wish i would have caught this fact before i bought some UAL, i would have bought back all HA stock.
John kerry is negotiation with Iran tonight. If there is a framework agreed to, oil can drop by 5 dollars a share according to a news article on CNBC website. This may be a bit over optimistic, but there will be a good drop in oil prices.
If the deal goes down, it probably will be tonight. Means all today losses and some change will be on tomorrows stock price for airline stocks. I loaded up today on airline stocks today hoping for a good bump tomorrow.
i agree, i bought some of the shares i sold off yesterday. I also bought some UAL. I usually cant time these moves very well, but i came out OK on my sell yesterday.
DOT decision didnt go our way, but i don't think this was on many peoples radar, and the decsion wasnt that unexpected either for those who followed. Airline futures are up today.
Have no idea how this is going to open. No premarket action for HA either.
i know a lot of the airlines are getting away from hedging, especially the bigger ones. AAL, DAL and UAL have publicly stated this. I am not sure what HA is doing, there is no public articles on this anywhere, and the quarterly earnings conference last quarter, none of the anlaysis asked.
Price of oil has been around 45 twice so far, hopefully HA was smart enough to start some future hedges there. What a catalysis for stock price if they announce they started some new hedges around this price.
1) DOT bad decision, probably not that unexpected
2) Revised upward earnings, still over 20 percent down from 52 week highs, when most other airlines are close to 52 week highs, while the rest are not over 10 percent down from 52 week highs
1) The revised earnings up, and we are still over 20 percent from 52 week highs.
2) The average airline is about 7-8 percent from 52 week highs.
3)The DOT decision was disappointing but probably not that unexpected.
4)There was so little press on this.
I think this would have been a game changer for HA, but i dont think it will have a lot of downward pressure on the stock, given the reasons i mentioned above.
damn, we came in 3rd place. HA would create 10 times the revenue as Delta and 4 times the revenue as Amercian. Same with the new jobs numbers, and the decision was based on the public's best interest.
