The carrier's fourth-quarter results came in slightly better than expected, but unit revenue growth will continue to slow in the first quarter of 2019.
“The pipeline of ideas and changes was not just for 2018,” Chief Commercial Officer Andrew Nocella told analysts and investors on a conference call Wednesday. The Chicago-based carrier is bucking the industry gloom stoked by Delta Air Lines Inc. and American Airlines Group Inc., which cautioned investors this month about their ability to push fares higher. United, meanwhile, is pushing ahead with an aggressive expansion plan, stepping up its luxury offerings and planning tweaks to its new revenue-management system.

The partial U.S. government shutdown is now into its fourth week, making it the longest-ever political standoff of its kind. While critical functions such as defense and mail delivery still are operating, other less-vital units have been mothballed, including several national parks and many Washington, D.C., monuments. A handful of agencies are somewhere in between, furloughing some nonessential workers while keeping essential ones at work to maintain the absolutely necessary aspects of their service. The ripple effect of the shutdown, however, has extended well beyond the circle of government employees and agencies. While government shutdowns typically don't hamper the stock market, a few publicly traded stocks and privately owned companies are starting to feel the pinch. These firms either provide contracted services and goods for the government, or cater to government employees who (for now) aren't receiving a paycheck. Here are seven companies that have been (or that analysts think could be) adversely impacted by the shutdown. ### SEE ALSO: 19 Best Stocks to Buy for 2019 (And 5 to Sell)

Last night, United Airlines (NASDAQ:UAL) management reported earnings and Wall Street loved what it saw. UAL stock rallied 5% on the headline. The airline sector has a long standing reputation that it will always manage to mess up a good thing. But this idea is slowly dying. Something has changed because we all now pay for every perk that used to be free and then some. Even after you pay for your seat you find out that you need to pay extra if you plan on breathing oxygen while on board. All kidding aside, airlines now are taking in more dollars than ever. UAL just delivered a monster beat above expectations on all metrics and upgraded its outlook even in the face of uncertain macro issues. Clearly the messes from the headline flubs are long gone. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips The question from here is if the company can maintain this fleecing of its clients. I have no specific reason to believe that it can't, but I wanted to get the potential pitfalls out of the way before I share the upside opportunity that is still in UAL stock. I can go long, even up here on this pop. ### Potential Downsides to UAL Stock The Environment: First, let's start with the macroeconomic picture. I still believe that the fundamentals favor the bullish thesis: 2018 ended red, but that was because we had a slew of negative headlines littering our ticker tape. We have since eliminated one major fear. The Fed is no longer the enemy as they said they won't invert the yield curve on purpose. So the threat of a self-inflicted recession is now minimal. * 10 Growth Stocks With the Future Written All Over Them We are left with the tariff war between the U.S. and China. Even there, the rhetoric from both sides has become more tame. They both state their optimism that they will come to terms by March. So we should have clear sailing on that front for a few weeks. We recently have a new worry emerging from the government shutdown, which is now a record. There is a problem brewing from the TSA calling in absent since they are not getting a paycheck. This could impact UAL's bottom line, but so far they say it's not material enough to change the message. United Airlines fundamentals are modest. UAL stock sells at a trailing price-to-earnings ratio of 10.9. This is low in absolute terms and in line with its competitors. In short, United Airlines stock is not bloated and owning it at these valuations is not likely to be a big mistake in the long run. I hear some experts wanting to chase laggards instead of buying the UAL stock pop. I disagree! I'd rather bet on a team that just delivered a big win than bet that the struggling stocks of AAL or Delta Airlines (NASDAQ:DAL). Not every lagging stock catches up because there might be reasons why they lagged in the first place. AAL and DAL stock are down 20% and 45% over the past year, whereas UAL is up 5% … even before this pop. This is proof that if markets in general are going to be higher this year, UAL is the one major airline most likely be up at a commensurate rate. Meanwhile, the iShares Transportation Average ETF (NYSEARCA:IYT) is down 15% for the same period. * 7 Stocks to Buy as the Dollar Weakens The technical reason: UAL stock is testing a pivotal zone around $85 per share. If the bulls can prevail, they can overshoot higher toward $90. And then, with the help of a rising tide in the stock market, they can try to recapture the highs. The upper end of the ascending 12-month channel is closer to the highs at $97.50 per share. Eventually they can get there without new shoes to drop. Since we are still in a headline trading environment and the government shutdown looks like it will go on for weeks longer, I would not take a full position at once. This leaves me room to add in case the immediate price action fades a bit. The bottom line on United Airlines stock? Management just crushed earnings. This is an all-clear to start or add to a bullish position in United Airlines stock for the long term.
