BUY
He's not surprised the airlines are doing well. United reported a shockingly strong beat. Sales were up 13% in Q3 vs. 2019, and a 53-cent earnings beat. They are printing money. Both their EPS and operating revenue beat the street. They're at more than 90% capacity vs. 2019 levels. Guidance sees continued strong demand as they manage costs, so they forecast $2.00-2.25 EPS in this quarter (vs. street's $1). United has the most exposure to transatlantic flights, which is a big because the USD is so strong against the Euro. Given hybrid work, more poeple are flying and travelling. But be careful owning airlines, though strength will continue.

BUY
Last Wednesday, they reported a less than stellar report if you looked at the headline numbers, but management offered a very bullish forecasts. They'll return to 87% of pre-Covid capacity this quarter, with revenue per passenger up 17% vs. 2019. On track to record sales in Q2, and will return to profitability.
Transportation
DON'T BUY
Though fuel costs have gone up, ticket prices have gone up a lot to compensate. They make a lot of money on business class. So, initially, there might be a bump in travel, but the world has changed due to Zoom, etc. It's a really difficult environment.
Transportation
HOLD
It's more of a global player. It's made a few missteps, so he's unsure owning this longer term. He won't add to this.
Transportation
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 07/21, Down 21.94%) Pandemic and reduced travel very hard on business. Rising fuel costs also affecting business negatively. Believes increasing travel will positively affect business. Travel business will be strong going forward. Continues to hold.
Transportation
DON'T BUY
The space is too tough, too competitive.
Transportation
WEAK BUY
Airline outlook during this recovery as passenger volumes return to pre-pandemic levels? He believes in this. Airports are full now. Soon, there'll be worldwide travel and UAL will do well, though he can't recommend the airlines until the price of crude oil goes down.
Transportation
BUY
AmEx earnings showed that the corporate client is coming back, so corporate travel should come back. Headwinds will eventually turn into tailwinds. The market is waiting-and-seeing now. Ultimately, this sector will be worth owning.
Transportation
BUY
Corporate spending is coming back. UAL is adding 10% to international capacity, and those are the high-margin flights. This sector will continue to look better in Q4. Also, the airlines including United have become leaner and meaner, more efficient. Beware that the balance sheet has been levered and earnings power diluted.
Transportation
BUY
United Air vs. Zoom Video Now, post-Covid, United has doubled off its lows while Zoom has cut in half from its highs. Bet on United, not Zoom, because international travel is making a comeback after people have saved up their money. He predicts the holiday season will see huge travelling. Business travel may come back in Q1 next year, but Zoom is too efficient and too good and saves a lot of money. Zoom trades at 57x earnings (not sales). Zoom is here to stay and long-term the stock is good. But near-term, Zoom needs to do something new, like video games, or gambling. United has more room to run while Zoom is one acquisition away from turning things around.
Transportation
BUY

The airlines are ready for take-off, as reflected in this earnings season and being international flights pick up. Meanwhile, they see no degradation from the new Covid variants. UAL just reported strong numbers and he expects the entire sector to follow suit. The industry will end the year very profitable. United, Delta and American have all reported improving financials and bookings. The airlines were saved by Washington when Congress allocated them $54 billion during the lockdown in 2020.

(A Top Pick Jan 21/21, Up 9.4%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with UAL has triggered its stop at $47. We recommend covering the balance of the position at this time. Combined with the previous recommendation to cover 50% of the position, this results in a net investment return over 16%.
Transportation
COMMENT

He prefers Southwest, because it's hard to fly overseas. But UAL is not expensive.

Transportation
BUY

They report Monday and he expects them to comment on the coming boom, like Delta did. This is up 30% YTD and will continue to climb.

Transportation
DON'T BUY
He owned this going into the pandemic and got hurt. To survive plunges like that be strongly disciplined, diversified and rebalance. He sold it almost immediately. Though UAL stock has partially recovered, his new stock has done very well with a lot less risk. The airlines will survive, but the future is up in the air and not a good reason to buy these stocks. Distancing will make it tough to pack passengers on planes.
