Bill Gunderson's Radio Play of the Day: Airline Stocks. Really

Stocks in this article: LCC UNP ARII GWR JBHT

Did someone say 5.5 times forward earnings?

I don't really believe the analysts consensus estimate of 65% growth per year over the next five years. If the company can grow their earnings by 6% or more, I would still be buying it at a discount to earnings.

When I perform my own math on the shares, I come up with a conservative five-year target price of $31. That is substantially higher than the current price of the stock.

No, I swore off airlines a long time ago. I am not going to give in!

When I take into consideration the performance and the valuation of the stock, I come up with a stock that ranks #17 out of the 3,293 stocks that I follow. It also earns a Gunderson Grade of "A."

I refuse to buy a stock that does not have a good stock chart. I hate downtrends, and sideways trends are blah. Topping out trends that are rolling over really scare me. I like fresh new uptrends if I can find them (along with performance and value.)

I just know that there is no way that an airline stock could have a good stock trend, too.

Not a good chart, too! I will never buy another airline stock. I promised myself. I also swore off cheesecake in January. Just my luck, I stayed right next door to a Cheesecake Factory over the weekend. That slice of Peanut Butter Fudge sure was delicious!

At the time of publication aggressive/moderate growth clients of Gunderson Capital Management are currently long U.S. Airways.
