Airline stocks are rocketing higher on Tuesday morning, joining in a broader market rally as investors celebrate signs economic activity is returning to normal and promising developments in the race for the COVID-19 vaccine. Shares of Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) led the way, up more than 14% as of 10 a.m. EDT, with shares of Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV), United Airlines Holdings (NASDAQ: UAL), Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL), American Airlines Group (NASDAQ: AAL), Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK), JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU), and Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ: HA) all up double digits.
What happened We've been saying for weeks now that airlines, thanks in part to a government cash infusion, are in no immediate danger of liquidity issues, but the industry needs traffic to normalize in the months to come to avoid dire consequences.
Airlines have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, sending stocks crashing down and causing Warren Buffett to run for the emergency exits. During a May 12 television interview, CEO David Calhoun said a "major U.S. carrier" will "most likely" go out of business this year, predicting an extended decline in travel.
Over the past decade, this budget airline's stock price soared from $12 to $85, then sank back below $10. Yet while its near-term outlook is bleak, its long-term potential is substantial.
Shares of United Airlines Holdings (NASDAQ: UAL) closed down more than 3% on Thursday and were down 12% earlier in the trading session, as the carrier's troubles continue to mount. It was a down day for most of the airlines, but United continues to underperform. It's been a rough week for United shareholders.
Airline shares were under pressure again on Wednesday following comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell forecasting a long post-COVID-19 recovery that could "leave behind lasting damage" to the economy. The airlines need a quick economic rebound to avoid financial distress, and Powell's comments provided new reason for investors to worry about the viability of airline shares. As of 12:30 p.m. EDT, shares of Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) were down 14%, shares of United Airlines Holdings (NASDAQ: UAL) were off 9.8%, and shares of Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL), American Airlines Group (NASDAQ: AAL), and Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) were all down more than 5% apiece.
