United Airlines' growth strategy seems to be paying off. However, the company is still nowhere close to matching Delta Air Lines' profit margin.

In early February we had a stock market correction that was based on fears of runaway interest rates. For the last few months United Continental Holdings (NYSE:UAL) stock has been relatively stable, trading inside a sideways range. Last night, UAL management reported earnings, and they beat on all expectations.
While Hasbro (NYSE:HAS) has been trying to grind out gains so far this year, it’s been tough sledding over the past 12 months. Hasbro stock is up 3.5% so far in 2018, but down about 17% over the last 12 months. With that said, Hasbro stock may be breaking out, paving the way to more upside.
United says it is recovering 75 percent of the increase in fuel costs through higher fares and other initiatives. The airline's shares surged by more than 8 percent to an intraday high of $78.65 around 10 a.m. United Continental UAL Holdings shares surged more than 8 percent Wednesday morning after the third-largest U.S. airline raised its 2018 profit outlook and said higher fares are helping to recover most of the surge in fuel costs over the past year.
Strong demand for air travel leads to Delta's (DAL) and United Continental's (UAL) impressive second-quarter performances.
It wasn't all good news: Share buybacks bumped up the bottom-line beat, and fuel costs jumped over 43% in the quarter. Way back in January, United's increased capacity spooked investors across the industry, and Delta Air Lines' (DAL) second-quarter earnings lift came largely from its lowered capacity, as airlines try to win back investors' trust. After all, even with strong demand for air travel, excess capacity on the supply-side means less pricing power for airlines, an issue that's more relevant than ever as fuel prices climb. On this score, United did well.
LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / July 18, 2018 / If you want access to our free earnings report on Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE: DAL) (“Delta”), all you need to do is sign up now by clicking the following link www.active-investors.com/registration-sg/?symbol=DAL. The Company reported its second quarter fiscal 2018 operating and financial results on July 12, 2018. Additionally, the Company updated its guidance.
United Continental Holdings Inc. said its profit is rising despite surging jet fuel costs. The no. 3 U.S. carrier by traffic beat earnings forecasts on Tuesday and raised its profit outlook for the year. “These results are the strongest evidence yet that our strategic growth plan is working, and we are well positioned to carry our momentum into the second half of the year,” Chief Executive Oscar Munoz said in a press release.
United Airlines raised its profit forecast for 2018 on Tuesday, as average fares and traffic both rose and it trimmed capacity expansion in the face of soaring fuel costs. Shares of United rose as much as 4.2 percent in trading after the bell as the airline's second-quarter profit also topped analysts' estimates.
United Continental Holdings Inc. jumped the most in almost two years, carrying other airlines along for the ride after boosting its profit outlook and easing investor fears that rising seat supply would outstrip demand. By contrast, Delta Air Lines Inc. and American Airlines Group Inc. have pared their profit projections, citing cost pressures from pricier jet fuel. The No. 3 U.S. airline also took a step back from the high end of its target for expanding flights and seats this year, tapping the brakes on an aggressive growth plan that spooked industry investors when it was announced in January.
Rising fuel prices are cutting into profit at United Airlines, although strong travel demand is helping the airline cope by pushing travelers' prices higher as the summer travel season hits full speed. United reported Tuesday that second-quarter profit was $684 million, down 17 percent from a year ago. United said that passenger revenue per seat and per mile — a stand-in for fares and fees — rose 3 percent over a year earlier.
Delta's program includes a three-pronged approach at developing the next generation of flyers. That includes offering an unpaid leave of absence path for current employees to attend flight school.
Delta Air Lines estimates it will need 8,000 pilots over the next decade and it's turning to its own employees and students to fill the gap in a broad initiative.
While Delta Air Lines (DAL) already reported second-quarter earnings and gave the sector a lift, this week we'll get two more reports, from United Continental Holdings (UAL) this afternoon and American Airlines Group (AAL) on Wednesday. Investors are likely starved for good news: Airline stocks have taken a hit this year, as high fuel prices and worries about capacity distract from the ongoing strong demand, and that's before thinking about what a trade war could mean for business flyers, who tend to favor the big three legacy airlines. Barclays' Brandon Oglenski takes a look at the sector ahead of United's and American's results, writing that a discussion about reducing capacity could help put a floor under the stocks, especially given low valuations and lower market expectations.
Rising fuel costs have put pressure on Delta's pretax margin in 2018, but the company is well-positioned to stabilize its profitability over the next couple of quarters.
Of the 18 analysts tracking Delta Air Lines (DAL), 94% recommend “buy,” and 6% recommend “hold.” Their consensus target price of $68.30 implies a 34.6% return based on DAL’s July 12 closing price. Although DAL’s Q2 2018 earnings and revenue beat analysts’ estimates, its downward revision of its fiscal 2018 EPS guidance to $5.35–$5.70 due to higher fuel prices prompted analysts to cut their target price for the stock.
In Q2 2018, Delta Air Lines (DAL) reported record second-quarter revenue of $11.77 billion (including third-party refinery sales). The revenue, which represents ~9.0% growth YoY (year-over-year), beat analysts’ expectation of $11.67 billion. Peers JetBlue Airways (JBLU), American Airlines (AAL), and Southwest Airlines (LUV) are projected to see revenue growth of 5.0%, 5.9%, and 0.5%, respectively, in Q2 2018.
Surging fuel costs leads yet another airline to cut its financial outlook, but most airline stocks rallied as analysts looked to increased ticket pricing to offset the fuel price increase.
Airlines stocks have been losing altitude lately. Because they have great cash-flow generation and several return a large amount of capital, though, some investors are no doubt wondering if now’s the time to buy. There are a number of different names, but for this article, I wanted to take a look at the largest in the industry.7 Hot Stocks Savvy Investors Are Buying
Something happened on the Delta air Lines call yesterday that caused my jaw to drop -- and I typically don't do a lot of jaw dropping on a conference call. Delta's management acquitted itself well -- despite the $2 billion increase in fuel costs, which caused a shade down.
