14:28 EDTJBLUAirlines fall after Justice Department said to probe possible collusion
Major U.S. airline stocks are dropping precipitously in intraday trading following a report of a Justice Department investigation into potential "unlawful coordination" between companies attempting to artificially limit growth to keep fares high. WHAT'S NEW: The Associated Press has obtained a document showing that the U.S. Justice Department is investigating whether major airlines might be colluding to slow their growth in order to maintain high airfares. A spokesperson for the Department confirmed that it is probing airlines over possible "unlawful coordination," though she did not name specific companies in the sector. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Today's report of possible collusion within the industry follows a period of volatility among airline stocks in late May and early June on concerns over undisciplined capacity growth and price competition. Following some recovery in the stocks, a Barron's cover story on June 20 predicated a potential 15%-50% upside in airlines and specifically cited high fares. PRICE ACTION: Shares of American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), Southwest (LUV), United Continental (UAL) and JetBlue (JBLU) are all down over 4.5% in afternoon trading and continue to drop.

06:18 EDTEADSYSuppliers worried about Airbus, Boeing production rate hike, Reuters reports
Major engine suppliers, including General Electric (GE) and Safran, are becoming worried that they may lose out if they invest to meet higher commercial jet production targets from Airbus (EADSY) and Boeing (BA) that may prove unsustainable, Reuters reports. Airbus and Boeing have plans to raise production rates of their best selling single aisle planes by 25% to 50-52 a month in 2017-2018, the report says. Suppliers have said that they need to secure the start of a steep rise in output before making a commitment to even loftier targets, the report says. Reference Link

11:09 EDTJBLUDelta climbs following upgrade, reported fare hike
The shares of Delta Air Lines (DAL) are rising after research firm Wolfe Research upgraded the stock to Outperform from Peer Perform in a note to investors earlier today. Additionally, JPMorgan says Delta appears to have instituted a domestic fare increase yesterday. WHAT'S NEW: Delta's new deal with its pilots on profit sharing removes an unknown that had been facing the company, Wolfe wrote. Additionally, the airlines seems to be implementing additional domestic capacity cuts, the firm stated. As a result, Wolfe slightly increased its passenger revenue per available seat mile, or PRASM, estimate for the company. Furthermore, expectations for Delta's Q3 PRASM have dropped significantly, even though the airlines recently said that its PRASM should turn positive in Q4. Consensus estimates for Delta now look "reasonable" for this year and beatable in 2016, according to Wolfe, which set a $62 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: JPMorgan said Delta appears to have instituted an additional, $2 one-way across-the-board domestic fare increase yesterday, following last week's industry-wide increase. The firm sees "no harm" in Delta trying, but adds it would be surprised to see material support from the discounters. JPMorgan said it remains "puzzled" as to why airline industry stock sentiment is so negative since discipline among the companies is "alive and kicking." The firm has an Overweight rating on Delta. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded airline operators include American Airlines (AAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL). PRICE ACTIOn: In late morning trading, Delta rose 2.5% to $42.38.
