In an industry where customers compete to complain louder than everyone else, only Southwest seems to build their growing market share on making flying hassle-free and failrly enjoyable.

They just expanded more domestic routes out of their hub in Texas, which will most certainly lead to more profits over time. Southwest has been and continues to be a well-run airline. Also, the company is somewhat insulated from what happens abroad (Ukraine, Ebola, European recession, Cartels, etc,), because they are a domestic carrier.

Going short on the entire airline sector. Earnings forecasts are very optimistic in my view. They are economically sensitive, and I predict the US economy is going to soften near-term.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

Up 88% in the last year on some postive overall changes and growth into new markets...but its still an airline.

Constantly growing as a company and providing fantastic service. I think we will see more market share for Southwest in the coming years.

Now that Southwest Airlines is adding flights out of the continental US it is starting a new phase in its competition with the major carriers. It has always been one of the highest rated airlines by consumers.

Positive:
- Best of the airlines (but still an airline ...)
- Their size allows them to effectively compete on prices which is the overriding issue for customers
- They might be able to further take market share from competitors, especially on international lines
- Very good management
- Fuel costs may go down with more deflation on the horizon (which I expect)

Negative:
- It is an airline and we might be on a cyclical top
- Not that cheap anymore (but who is?)

I usually avoid airlines like I avoid ex girlfriends after all they both can take you to incredible heights, you just always have to be waiting for the oxygen masks to come out and prepare for the crash.

Southwest though seems to do things the right way, and in the face of upgrades, solid performance and raises in the price targets I am willing to take a flyer...(PUN HEAVILY INTENDED)
