10:32 EDTDAL, JBLU, UAL, AALAirline stocks rally after Goldman ups sector rating
Airline stocks are rising in a down market after Goldman Sachs raised its rating on the sector to Attractive from Neutral. WHAT'S NEW: Although airline stocks have already outperformed the market, it's not too late for investors to get involved in the sector, Goldman wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Not yet priced into the stock are higher ticket prices, more crowded planes, and a recovering U.S. consumer, according to the firm. It initiated coverage of American Airlines (AAL) with a Buy rating and upgraded its rating on JetBlue (JBLU) to Neutral from Sell. Goldman kept Buy ratings on Delta (DAL) and United Continental (UAL). PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, American Airlines rose 1.25% to $37, JetBlue added 0.6% to $8.80, Delta gained 2% to $35.30, and United Continental lost 0.5% to $44.65.

16:50 EDTUALUnited Continental January consolidated traffic up 0.1%
UAL's January 2016 consolidated traffic, revenue passenger miles, increased 0.1 percent and consolidated capacity, available seat miles, decreased 0.1 percent versus January 2015. UAL's January 2016 consolidated load factor increased 0.2 points compared to January 2015. The company continues to expect first-quarter 2016 consolidated passenger unit revenue to decline 6 to 8 percent compared to the first quarter of 2015, with the decline driven largely by a strong U.S. dollar, lower surcharges, travel reductions from customers impacted by declining oil prices and softening domestic and international yields.
