11:58 EDTALK, JBLU, LUV, DAL, UALFirm says airline stocks should be bought on weakness
Research firm Cowen recommends buying shares of airline stocks in the wake of the sector's weakness. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, Cowen recommended buying airline stocks, even though the firm said a number of companies in the sector have provided weak guidance on Passenger Revenue per Available Seat Mile, or PRASM, for the first quarter of this year. Noting that United Continental (UAL), Southwest Airlines (LUV), and Alaska Airlines (ALK) all reported better than expected results, the firm thinks the outlook for the industry is "very much intact." Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and United Continental all have upcoming positive catalysts, the firm added. Cowen kept Outperform ratings on Southwest and Delta Air Lines (DAL). WHAT'S NOTABLE: One prominent company in the sector that still hasn't reported its fourth quarter results is JetBlue (JBLU), which is slated to announce its earnings on January 29. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, United Continental dropped 3.7% to $46.63, Southwest Airlines fell 1.3% to $20.98, Alaska Air fell 1.4% to $80.20, Delta dropped 4.3% to $31.10, and JetBlue declined 3.3% to $8.93.
