    American Airlines Up 21% Since Q3: Can It Keep the Momentum?

    American Airlines (AAL) stock, the most battered stock in the airline industry this year so far, has suddenly been gaining solid momentum lately.

    7 Stocks to Buy for a Holiday Season Boost

    Everyone's aware of the seasonal pattern around the holidays. As Thanksgiving and Black Friday near, retailers ramp up their discounts until going full-bore for a roughly monthlong bargain bonanza. But there's an investment thesis, too: Companies whose sales and profits peak around Christmas tend to make good stocks to buy for a short-term bump. It doesn't always work with every seasonal stock, of course. Some companies have bad quarters. And in broad-market corrections and bear markets, almost everything falls - even quality firms that are performing well. But if a normal seasonal pattern holds, several companies - that have exhibited this pattern of rising and falling in previous years - should do quite well. They're not just retail stocks either. Many other types of associated investments get the same type of multi-month boost. Here are seven stocks to buy for a 2018 holiday season pop, though many of them you may want to keep well into the new year. SEE ALSO: 10 Stocks Warren Buffett Is Buying (And 6 He's Selling)
