    By Alex Colman - August 21, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, CVX, DAL, PG

    As regulators contemplate and begin to take action on climate change, it’s practically inevitable that the price of carbon is headed north within the next decade, either through new taxes, caps on emissions, or both. And since fossil fuels are a staple in the supply chains of many industries, carbon price volatility can ripple quickly throughout the global economy.

    By John McKenna - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: DAL, UAL, LCC

    So much for a quick and easy airline merger.

    On August 13th, the Department of Justice surprisingly announced that it would be investigating the proposed merger between US Airways (NYSE: LCC) and American Airlines for anti-competitiveness in the industry. The news sent struggling US Airways’ stock plunging 13% in the day’s trading, a reversal from the initial bump that it received when the merger announcement was announced in more »

  • Two Big Factors Fueling Airline Shares

    By Alexander MacLennan - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: AAMRQ.PK, DAL, UAL, LCC

    Airlines are not often thought of as a good way to make money; in fact, they have quite a reputation for doing just the opposite. But holders of airline shares have been richly rewarded if they bought at almost any point over the last year. With the airline industry being one with a long history of bankruptcies and failures, two major factors are working together to drive airline shares now more »

  • Two Airliners for the Long Haul

    By Michael Douglass - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: DAL, JBLU, UAL, LCC

    American airline firms have had several difficult years, and as a sector there is a lot of uncertainty about the future. This article will briefly analyze the general sector landscape and compare a few of the main carriers.

I don’t view Delta Airlines (NYSE: DAL) and United more »

  • This Low-Cost Airline Is Poised for Growth

    By Nolan Kulbiski - August 8, 2013 | Tickers: DAL, JBLU, LUV, SAVE, UAL

    Over the past decade the airline industry has shifted from widespread losses to small but growing profits by adopting two different pricing strategies simultaneously. Economy seats are sold as stripped downed commodities along side an array of optional fees. Premium seats are treated like luxury goods with airlines competing for customer loyalty based on service and amenities.

    By Robinson Roacho - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: DAL, BA, LCC

    The airline industry continues to rebound from lows seen in 2007 and 2008. It was not uncommon to think of the sector as a place where money goes down the drain. However, investors have been rewarded handsomely in present times.

  • Stocks to Own for an Oil Price Collapse

    By Sam Mattera - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: DAL, FDX, JBHT

    Analysts at Deutsche Bank are out with a note warning that oil prices could soon collapse. That’s great for American drivers, but it might not be the best for the performance of the S&P 500.

    By Vladimir Zernov - August 2, 2013 | Tickers: DAL, UAL, LCC

    Airline operation is one of the toughest businesses out there. The margins are thin. The level of responsibility is enormous.

    By Arturo Cuevas - July 30, 2013 | Tickers: DAL, GOGO, LCC

    In-flight Internet connectivity service provider Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO) just seem unable to have a stable hook-up with investors. Since its IPO late this June, the company has so far been unable to reach its $17 initial public offer price and has traded at the $12.64–$16.32 band after that lackluster market entry.

    The prospect of Gogo’s equity ascending to higher levels apparently hinges mainly on the pricing more »

    By Daniel James - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: DAL, UAL, LCC

    For a long time, airlines were regarded by many as the black sheep of the stock market. Uncertainty surrounding labor disputes and fuel prices caused investors to shy away from the industry. Now, as many airlines have consolidated, leading to synergy benefits among other things, the industry is looking a lot more attractive. One airline in particular is trading at an absolutely rock-bottom valuation at the moment, despite fairly solid more »
