Airline stocks have been flying high lately, perhaps consumers are showing signs of life again and are ready to travel. Oil prices are still down, which certainly helps margins, but even more important is that carriers have reported heavy load numbers. This means butts are in seats and potential profits are good. Other airlines have been performing well, including Delta (a prior chart of the week), but American Airlines is poised for some upside.
American Airlines Stock Chart (NYSE: AAL)
The chart of American Air is constructive, but it’s also bound by brackets and stuck in a range. However, a recent test of the upper range may take the stock even higher toward the May gap at 49 or so. Relative strength is impressive, though it may be due for a pullback and money flow has been improving. MACD has switched over to a buy signal, so when the stock pushes over 45, we’ll be looking for a good entry point.
