DON'T BUY

They report tomorrow and probably will report a loss. Delta which he also owns looks a lot better technically. It comes down to Boeing's delays in delivering 737 Max's.

Transportation
PARTIAL SELL

Shares have rallied since last fall, so take profits. But remember that all airlines are trades.

Transportation
BUY

Expects a super Christmas season for the airlines.

Transportation
DON'T BUY

Airlines are destroyers of wealth. Rent, but don't own an airline sock. Going back to 2006, UAL's total return is 8%, and down over 50% in the last 5 years. Same with their peers.

We reiterate UAL as a TOP PICK.  The company just announced it has purchased land in Denver to expand its pilot training centre.  It is already Denver's largest employer, operation 400 flights daily from there.  Quarterly cash flow is growing as debt is retired.  It trades at 6x earnings, 2.2x book and supports a 45% ROE.  We recommend trailing up the stop (from $44) to $48, looking to achieve $71 -- upside potential of 30%.  Yield 0%.

(Analysts’ price target is $71.29)

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

UAL is benefiting from pent up domestic and international travel demand.  Management expects quarterly revenue growth of 14% and cargo revenue is growing.  It trades at 20x earnings (only 5x forward earnings), 2x book, and supports a 37% ROE.  Latest quarterly cash reserves were growing, while debt was retired.  We recommend a stop-loss at $40, looking to achieve $62.50 -- upside potential of 30%.  Yield 0%

(Analysts’ price target is $62.41)

DON'T BUY

He doesn't own any airlines, too cyclical. Had pricing power after Covid. Dealing with leasing planes, wage pressure, lower capacity, fuel price increases. This all hurt them. Things may improve if they can increase prices and capacity and if the cost structure evens out.

Transportation
BUY
The consumer continues to spend on travel and UAL is well-positioned for this. He expects a strong report on Tuesday.
Transportation
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.
Transportation
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.
