Moreover, TOST currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), which means it is in the top 20% of more than the 4,000 stocks that we rank based on four factors related to earnings estimates.

American Airlines Group Inc. AAL was formed following the December 2013 merger between AMR (American Airlines' parent group, which was founded in 1934) and U.S. Airways. Improved air-travel demand, particularly on the domestic front, is aiding American Airlines. Owing to upbeat air-travel demand, Operating revenues in third-quarter 2022 increased 50.1% year over year. Buoyant air-travel demand is also reflected by the total operating revenue increase of 13% from the third-quarter 2019 (pre-coronavirus) levels despite 9.6% lower capacity. Driven by soaring demand on healthy bookings, management expects total revenues in the fourth quarter of 2022 to be roughly 11-13% higher than the level recorded in fourth-quarter 2019. The carrier's debt-reduction efforts are impressive as well. AAL is currently sporting a Zacks Rank of #2 (Buy), as well as a Value grade of A. American Airlines will be looking to display strength as it nears its next earnings release, which is expected to be January 26, 2023.
