+ Watch AAL
on My Watchlist
American Airlibes up 40% The worst sort of business is one that grows rapidly, requires significant capital to engender the growth, and then earns little or no money. Think airlines. Here a durable competitive advantage has proven elusive ever since the days of the Wright Brothers. Indeed, if a farsighted capitalist had been present at Kitty Hawk, he would have done his successors a huge favor by shooting Orville down.
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
I wanted to pick this one as soon as it IPO. Going to fly high... no pun intended.
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.
Should fly with AA merger.
New American airline will be alot leaner and stronger. It may go through some stormy era due to consolidaing equipments, aircrafts, engine types and routing structure before it can realize a significant gain.
There is no way a merged American Airlines and US Airways is profitable in the near term. When United and Continental merged in 2010, they spent almost $3B and 2 years later the merger hasn't been completed.Additionally, US Airways will have to raise their wage scale to American Airlines, which will hurt profitability. While a merger would create a better network and might position US Airways to a better future, I doubt it will make money.http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/02/07/dont-expect-to-profit-from-an-amr-us-airways-merge.aspx?source=itxsitmot0000001&lidx=1
