Southwest Airlines and the Transport Workers Union, or TWU, 550, representing the carrier's 250 Flight Dispatchers, announce they have come to terms on a new four-year contract extension.

Southwest stated: "Our network optimization is producing strong financial results, and we are pleased with the performance of our markets under development. We continue to project roughly 700 aircraft by year-end, and an approximate 7% year-over-year increase in ASMs versus 2014. The full year effect of 2015's expansion is also estimated to increase 2016 ASMs approximately 5%, year-over-year, and we currently expect any further 2016 ASM year-over-year growth to be modest, with a focus on producing strong returns on our investments. Our incremental fleet growth in 2016 is currently expected to approximate two percent, compared with 2015."

15:43 EDTLUVSouthwest technical preview ahead of earnings
The stock has benefited along with its peers in the decline of crude pricing. WIth the recovery in crude, some of the gains have recently been given back. That leaves the stock poised near its 30-week moving average at $41.09. This moving average has been an excellent support line proxy for the shares since late 2012. If there is a negative surprise, a breakdown below the 30-week would be bearish, snapping the uptrend line for the first time since late 2012. Downside levels to watch would be at the following support levels: $40.26, $38.24, and $34.55. If the news is bullish, the key resistance level would be at $47.17 which is the 52-week high and life high. A breakout above that level would leave open a run to $47.50 to $50.
