+ Watch AAL
on My Watchlist
It's an airline...
merger positions largest airline to be a leader going forward
Forward thinking management, disposal of old equipment (poor performance) new management forward thinking CEO.
AAL has a huge stockpile of cash that could be used to purchase more economical aircraft, improve customer service like baggage handling or purchase other entities.
The company has already shown its recent merger has increased revenue and market share more than expected, and the profit margins have demonstrated initially, at least some, synergies with the companies merged.That being said, there is a reason Warren Buffett consistently speaks against airline investment, and while the recent reduction in competition should increase prices of all the four main airline companies, in the long term the industry is simply too reliant on external forces including the economy, gas prices, and mother nature to be a good investment with all the other investment outlets in the world.
I know, shot up too high too fast, overbought, now for the sell off. Maybe, but I still like their long term potential.
Just looking for a winter weather snowstorm play. AAL, however, may not be the best one as it has some strange characteristics/accounting while the merger settles. AA has decent warm weather hubs, but even some of those had some icing and little equipment. USAirways has a huge hub in Philly. May need to dollar cost average and add another one to downthumb if the markets rally.
Excellent Management team & a Great Business model
The airlines are doing well right now, and this one is the largest after US air and American merged. It will go up more as they are integrated further.
Airlines are on the rebound big time
2nd Largest Airline in the US by Market cap after Merger with American on the December 9 2013 with the new symbol AAL. Has attractive Routes to make money, There will be short term Wobble sometime after merger but after that, the combined company stock symbol, AAL it is going to skyrocket, That's why I feel, this is the best time to get inside this stock, since this merger is a sure thing now. Also according to the stock distribution terms, Us airways common stock holders, get 1 common stock of AAL per LCC stock plus 28% of the diluted common stocks of the combined company. I will start accumulating this stock AAL to my portfolio, periodically in the coming weeks, depending upon the price volatility.
I THINK THE MERGER WILL PROCEED ,WILL CREATE WORLD CLASS AILINE.
merger goes thru and the new American kicks butt.
Short. Airline company is a value trap here at 5x earnings.
Company will merge with American Airlines in hopes of salvaging the fledgeling AA and compete with Continental United Airlines
I think it goes to the mid-20's on the merger with American and after that I think it goes even higher
As the US Airways and American merger completes and the company is able to capitalize on the cost savings through consolidation, this company will be off to the races. Add in the reduced number of carriers competing in the industry and price increases are likely to help boost the company's profits.
PE of 4. Used to be one of Buffett's picks.
With airline consolidation and that equating to consumers having fewer choices to pick from, airlines will have pricing power, and also with ridding AMR of debt, this should be a healthy merger and good synergy going forward.
Too many union representatives regulating employees and dictating work hours. Besides, Airlines have way too much dept.
