+ Watch LUV
on My Watchlist
A major domestic airline that provides point-to-point, low-fare service.
Everybody loves a good value.
strong domestic, plus same as AAL
Southwest understands customer service. It seems backwards that flying with the no-frills airline provides a much less dehumanizing experience than with fancier airlines. I think this shows in their track record of profitability.
The make and model is performing well and the maintenance crew are keeping them clean improving saftey
Hope I'm not late to the party with this one. In spite of rip-roaring 2014, this stock still seems like a good value: low Price/Sales; PE of 24.4 is less than half the PE average of the last 5 years; PEG with estimated 5-year growth at 0.50; decent 12m and 1-year ROE; operating and net margins greater than airline industry averages.Plus, it's still a popular go-to airline with most travelers. Their no-baggage-fee policy is a winner.Let's see if Seabiscuit still has some legs ...
Oil prices are down, and LUV is my favorite airline stock. Well-run, well-managed. There's only upside here. Airlines were part of the big sell-off today. That was a mistake on the market's part which it will correct soon. I intend to ride airlines up.
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.
Continued expansion across US and world. Acquisition of airbus.
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.
I am just a newbie at this but they have done well over the last year...so
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.
Trying something new: picking companies with high customer satisfaction rankings as recorded by various polls/reports.
Good management, responsive business model, relative low overhead, and good forward earnings potential.
they are the best at making money and keeping costs down while taking care of customers
Profitable, good trend
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 yearBecause 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).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
Up 88% in the last year on some postive overall changes and growth into new markets...but its still an airline.
