United Continental Holdings Inc Stock Readies for Takeoff

UAL

'United Continental Holdings Inc (NYSE:UAL), the airline best known for dogs dying in its cargo holds, announced its Q1 2018 earnings yesterday after the close of trading.', 'United stock has a history of big moves after earnings announcements, both good and bad, so it’s not surprising that the good news it delivered Wednesday pushed UAL higher by more than 6%.', 'Going into its latest quarterly report I considered both the positive and negative aspects of United earnings and what that meant for the future direction of UAL stock.', 'The analysts estimate for revenue and earnings per share in the first quarter were $9.01 billion and 45 cents; they came in at $9.03 billion and 50 cents, increases of 7.2% and 19.1% over the same quarter a year earlier and well ahead of analyst expectations. However, comparisons to earnings estimates are to be taken with a grain of salt.'

Why Freeport-McMoRan, United Continental Holdings, and CSX Jumped Today

UAL FCX +1 more UAL FCX CSX

'Earnings continued to dominate the headlines on Wall Street, and despite some clear losers on that front, investors seemed to be generally pleased with the way that the first quarter seems to have gone for corporate America. Some leading companies had good news that pushed their shares higher.', 'Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE: FCX), United Continental Holdings (NYSE: UAL), and CSX (NASDAQ: CSX) were among the best performers on the day.', "Domestic crude oil prices rose about $2 per barrel to around $68.50, while international Brent crude climbed to $73.50 per barrel as positive comments from Saudi Arabia spurred speculation that oil prices could return to triple digits in the foreseeable future.

Avoid United Continental Holdings Inc Stock Despite Earnings Beat

UAL

'Avoid United Continental Holdings Inc Stock Despite Earnings Beat. Although United Continental Holdings Inc (NYSE:UAL) earnings weren’t hurt by another public relations debacle, United stock just isn’t a safe bet.', 'Moreover, with the stock rising 22-fold since 2009, low multiples, and high earnings growth predicted, one might be inclined to ignore the bad press. However, given the UAL’s performance in comparison to peers, this earnings beat is not enough reason to buy United stock, especially when you can get better stocks with way less risk.', 'Perhaps no U.S.-based carrier has dealt with more embarrassing press than has UAL. Even so-called “legacy” carriers such as American Airlines Group Inc (NASDAQ:AAL) and Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE:DAL) have not come under this degree of fire.', 'The problem for would-be buyers of United Airlines stock is that its peers enjoy the same level of growth. And if old-line carriers such as American and Delta see these kinds of profit increases, younger, more nimble airlines such as Southwest Airlines Co (NYSE:LUV), JetBlue Airways Corporation (NASDAQ:JBLU), and Spirit Airlines Incorporated (NYSE:SAVE) also benefit from these growth levels.'
