Top 10 Performing Stocks To Own Right Now: American Airlines Group, Inc.(AAL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    At its investor conference on Wednesday, Delta warned that its Q2 pre-tax margin slump would be steeper than that — and again, it’s pointing to rising jet fuel prices as the culprit. This suggests that American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) and United Continental (NYSE:UAL) could also be at risk of missing their earnings forecasts this quarter.

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    A similar story was repeated this morning by American Airlines Group Inc. (NYSE: AAL), which posted stronger earnings than analysts were expecting. But its shares slid on a warning about higher fuel prices and other input costs. Also lower this morning were shares of Southwest Airlines (LUV), which reported earnings roughly in line with estimates. The Dallas-based airline, still reeling from a recent mid-air mishap, saw its shares lose over 4 percent in early trading.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Not surprisingly, the airlines with the lowest profit margins have been hit hardest. These carriers are the most vulnerable to fuel price increases and demand shocks, as small changes in their profit margins can severely impact their earnings. During the past year, American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) has fallen into the bottom echelon of U.S. airlines in terms of profitability, and so its share price tumbled 7.5% in the first three days of this week.
