+ Watch UAL
on My Watchlist
As long as Jeff Smisek is CEO United will be out maneuvered by the competition and the stock will reflect that.
The pre-merger Continental management team led by CEO Jeff Smisek will continue to shrink the airline in quality of product, market share and earnings behind Delta and, ultimately, the new American, unless the board acts to replace them. Internal IT problems, labor issues and a second tier airline mindset still beset United Continental Holdings three years after their merger was completed.
Airlines have never made an aggregate profit since the Wright Brothers. I am a former UAL employee and I love this airline that I can't afford to fly in real life. I have discovered the secret of the airline business. A) Go Bankrupt B) Merge to avoid Bankruptcy C) Merge and then go Bankrupt. I lost real money in the original Continental and United. I actually made a tidy profit in American just before their latest bankruptcy once I figured out the formula.
Single digit PE! People won't believe because they have consistently not made money!
Great time to be an airline company
New planes. Customer service campaign. Purchase of stock by CEO and US has not attacked Syria, so the oil prices will stabilize as well.
More mergers = less competitionless competition = higher fareshigher fares = larger earningslarger earnings = higher share price
just one spike in oil prices, and this one will go down.
This is the classic airline stock right now. Heavy CapEx, low profitability, labor union problems that can only be solved by throwing lots of money at workers, etc. I think UAL will continue to disappoint for the next few quarters.
Once integration issues are addressed, merger synergies would start kicking in.
Of the legacy carriers, it has a comparably healthy financial situation. If you've looked at the pain scheme or the company board, it's obvious that the merger was a case of Continental taking over United instead of the other way around, which is a good thing considering how great Continental was.
This is the strongest of the airlines right now. They should be consolidating their merger, and besides Southwest I wouldn't put money on any other airline.
The airline stocks appear to be at risk of losing in both a good and bad market.If the market continues to decline, financial fears may lower the number of passenger on their flights.If the market has a year end rally, commodity prices including oil will likely increase, which will result in higher operating costs.
they have a lot of cash to withstand downterm and will take advantage of poor competition who are lacking the cash reserve
UAL has focused management and Smiksek is focused on profit..At any expense..Thats good for the investor!
Good grwoth projection. Solid cash flow . Undervalued
the unrest in lybia and the oil prices soaring are only a temporary problem. when it comes to the long run. UAL and all the airline stockholders will be above the SPY because the are a needed part of our society.
What this article clearly misses is the fact that UAL is in the early stages of a merger. Loses are expected and reporting on a pro forma basis is a great way to show the potential that the combined carrier offers investors. The report of burning cash flow was firectly related to a large debt payments that was made not beucase it was due but beucase they were in a financial position that allowed them to. The leadership, the route network, the size, the product is all promising and that is why they will outperform.
