(only intelligent, and serious post please)
Hey guys dont know if you guys have noticed but some airline stocks are extremely underpriced right now, mostly due to the bad news about fuel prices. However with the recent shift of lower gas prices stocks like CAL (Continental Airlines) have raised about 15% since lower Jet-A prices at nationwide airports.
I think 2007 is the year for airlines if gas prices stay down, mainly due to the simple fact that airlines have been flying more then ever, making more money… but lately been spending so much on Jet-A prices. Crude prices have “somewhat stablized” since mid sept. and then into the november
CAL’s fair market value is <$80 a share! - Reuters

P.S. JBLU (NASDAQ) has also seen nice gains, and is another good stock to pick up mainly due to the fact that they are only a $15 dollar stock!!!
Brother, did you post in the wrong place if you were looking for “only intelligent and serious” postings!
I think JetBlue is priced about right. About 2-3 years ago the stock was going for the high 20’s/low 30’s. That was overpriced, especially compared to Southwest. (Southwest maintains a price of less than $20 a share. If the price goes above that then they declare a stock split.)
JetBlue’s future, in my oh-so-humble-opinion, is not as rosy as everyone thinks it is.
not me, I think jblu is destined to be trading around high 30s low 40s. Once a more balanced market emerges. thats why its such a good buy right now. they where voted “best domestic airline”…what ever that means
Y’know, that’s one of the weird things about stock markets. Airbus stock is probably so cheap right now, it may be a wise choice for bargain hunters. The A320 family will sell enough to bring in SOME revenue, and I’m betting that the French government will bail the company out if things get too much worse.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m not endorsing Airbus by any means, and I’m not saying that tougher times aren’t ahead. But if you truly follow the rules of “buy low, sell high,” then it’s one to look at, as crazy as the idea may seem…unless you think they haven’t bottomed out yet.
I was actually talking to my stock guru the other day about Airbus. I told him that I thought Airbus has NOT bottomed out. I would say that while, you are correct that the A320 family may bring some revenue, the stock and company won’t begin to rebound until the first batch (not first one) of A380s have been delivered and are in service for a couple of months to make sure all is well. What surprised me is that for once, my stock guru and I were on the same page (he told me NOT to buy Boeing when I did).
