+ Watch LUV
on My Watchlist
A major domestic airline that provides point-to-point, low-fare service.
Constantly growing as a company and providing fantastic service. I think we will see more market share for Southwest in the coming years.
2014 Sabrient Pick
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?)Category: PVn
International Flights beginning
still down but due for a bounce
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)
Screen: Over $10B, Top 10% EBIT/EV, Z Score >1.81
Southwest makes money, and I think will start charging bag fees like the rest of american airlines. People might not like it, but just means SW will make more money.
Industry is on the rebound
I've been flying SW my entire life. I've never had a bad experience. The flight attendants tell good jokes. And my bags fly free (for the moment). I might own this stock forever.
Southwest knows how to fly. The employees are happy and union.
LUV and DAL. Two airlines with their stuff all together in one sock.
Many problems with merger will take time to strighten out employee disputes. Landing area disputes. Financial agreements with two airlines
Southwest continues to add destinations, still avoids bag fees (though this may change in the future), and has a good on-time rating (83% on time). Low fares call to most of us, and the recent drop in oil-prices should help LUV's bottom line.
