+ Watch LUV
on My Watchlist
A major domestic airline that provides point-to-point, low-fare service.
fair winds & following seas in the near term
Fundamentally a simple business model executed very well YOY. Plus I really enjoy flying SWA. Great company culture!
Best operating structured airline in the U.S., maybe the world. EFFICIENCY.
I want to own every airline possible. Supply discipline will make these all work over the next several years. Lower fuel prices the whipped cream on top.
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.
