Experts have varying opinions on the American Airlines Group (AAL-Q) stock. While some believe that the company is well-positioned to benefit from pent-up traveler demand and improving financials, others are concerned about high fuel costs and lower profit expectations. The travel industry's recovery post-pandemic has also been noted, with a suggestion to wait until October for a potential share purchase. Overall, the stock seems to be attracting interest due to its low valuation and potential upside.

We reiterate AAL following the recent release of earnings, which showed cash reserves growing, while debt  is aggressively retired.  Analysts expect EPS growth this upcoming year of 180% as travel demand continues to grow.  We continue to recommend a stop at $13.00, looking to achieve $17.50 -- upside potential of 18%.  Yield 0%

(Analysts’ price target is $17.50)

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

Pent up traveler demand allowed AAL recently reported earnings to almost quadruple expectations - topping expectations for six consecutive quarters.  It trades at 12x and cash reserves are growing again as debt is aggressively retired.  We recommend setting a stop-loss at $13, looking to achieve $17 -- upside potential of 21%.  Yield 0%

DON'T BUY

He can't recommend the airlines now. Fuel costs are too high.

Transportation
HOLD

He prefers Delta, but he likes airlines, a business which is in flux. AAL shares are not expensive.

Transportation
BUY ON WEAKNESS

Travel industry recovering after Covid-19 pandemic. 
Sales stronger than the past few years.
Would wait to buy shares in October.
Seasonality - not a great time to buy shares.

Transportation
COMMENT
AA issued profit expectations that are lower than the street's

Not worried, because AA actually increased their estimates last month. The problem is that street's estimates got ahead of itself.

Transportation
DON'T BUY
It's losing money, so no. Delta is the best in this group.
Transportation
PARTIAL BUY
Last Thursday, AA forecast they'll return to 93% of pre-Covid capacity this quarter with total revenue up 6-8% compared to 2019--better than pre-Covid. Won't say when they will return to profitability. Are cleaning up the balance sheet and spending to increase capacity. He prefers Delta and United, but likes AA.
Transportation
DON'T BUY
He's never owned an airline in his career. Way too cyclical, capital intensive. When they lose, they lose big. All are in worse shape than before the pandemic. They've had to issue a ton of high-cost debt and more shares. Who knows what will happen with travel? Long-term chart has been a disaster. A trade at best.
Transportation
DON'T BUY
Airlines traditionally not a good investment (require a lot of capital and don't return much equity). Would not recommend as a long term investment. Don't buy.
Transportation
BUY

Bank of America reports there's an 8% increase in travel vs. 2019 (not 2020 during Covid). This trend will benefit American Airlines and Delta (his favourite airline), especially when international travel returns. True, shares have run up, but he feels there's still plenty of runway left.

Transportation
DON'T BUY

It's moved up too much and had to do an equity raise. Doesn't know how much money they're losing. Buy Boeing instead.

Transportation
DON'T BUY

An $11 stock, but he prefers LUV because it doesn't lose money and has a better long-term outlook.

Transportation
DON'T BUY
It's a roll of the dice. Washington is bailing out the airlines, so they will survive. But they have a huge pile of debt. A really tough call. He's never owned an airline. Too risky.
Transportation
DON'T BUY
It is very cheap at approximately 6 times but all airlines trade at cheap multiples. She shies away from airlines. AA has suffered from the 737-Max issue with 24 of their own. Fuel is always the overriding factor. This airline has added uncertainty because of the MAX issue as well as labour issues.
