+ Watch DAL
on My Watchlist
The Company provides air transportation for passengers and cargo throughout the U.S. and around the world.
I see the changes to their 2015 skymiles program benefiting DAL greatly. These changes should attract the business class big money spenders. While it could alienate a few of the personal travelers or smaller business travelers who look for the lowest fare possible, if they pick up one super high spender they can afford to lose several low fare spending passengers. I don't think they'll lose too many low fare passengers (relative to the number of big spenders they gain), as many will not find it worth the effort to switch airlines/program loyalty, or won't even realize the changes negatively affect them.Just a hunch. I look for 2015 and 2016 to be quite positive for DAL.
Bad weather should hurt earnings
With the recent increase of air travel and the demand of transcontinental flights, Delta will rise to the top over the next 2-4 years.
Airline travel will continue to grow. There will be a shortage of pilots. Long delta and long airlines.
Increased shareholder return by management will propel this company forward.
I am feeling airliney today apparently. This is another one with some nice upgrades and a rising price target that has me interested.
lowering fuel prices and decreased competiton
Excellent Management team & a Great Business model
The industry is in a position to move higher due to consolidation. This industry will outperform even with higher oil prices
Not my favorite airline to fly, but the fundamentals are strong and things are looking up for the industry
Single digit PE, consolidation in industry, now charging for services, people won't believe they have learned their lesson!
recent merger with US airways not the panacea it has been touted to be.
Because amy picked it.
LUV and DAL. Two airlines with their stuff all together in one sock.
After decades of poor performance, airline stocks have a lot of things going for them. Oil price outlook looks very good; consolidation has created an oligopoly for majors; more people flying and cost cuts.
First airline company I consider when flying
I'm not quite sure why this stock is still a one star. It's been a one star for as long as I have been watching it. The company is solid, good earnings, good performance, improving customer service, and is paying down it's debt. I've been in it since just under $4 when it emerged from bankruptcy. At worst this should be a 3 star IMHO due to the volatility of the industry. Even that, IMHO, has been negated with the consolidation of the industry.
More mergers = less competitionless competition = higher fareshigher fares = larger earningslarger earnings = higher share price
Looking at the Balance Sheet on March 18th, 2013, DAL has a negative book value of 2.131 billion, and a current ratio of .62What looks even worse though, is that of the 44.550 billion of "assets", almost 14.5 billion (32%) of this is Goodwill & Intangibles. DAL appears to be insolvent, yet incredibly the company has reached a 52 week high today of $16.48 This appears to be a perfect example of "market folly": as described by Warren Buffet...(No offence to George Soros...but billionaires make mistakes too...although perhaps he will cash out at a profit before it falls...). I made the "thumbs down" call on Nov 30, 2011 at $7.58, and am still 99% confident that this will be a very profitable "caps points" call...
Although I am employed in the airline business, which I love and probably will be for life, I know from this experience that aviation isn't exactly the most profitable business out there, if not one of the worst. Very, very competitive market out there with lots of risk and very few certainties.Still, Delta is one of the top world players and I think they will survive for many decades to come.But if you look at the rise of this one over the last couple of months, it's time for a step back.
