22 Airline Stocks to Consider for Your Stock Portfolio

With so many different investments opportunities, investors often have a difficult time deciding which direction is the best one for them to take.  

Here at TheStreet, we attempt to declutter the excess of information available and present it to our readers in such a way that they can make wise investment decisions.

Whether you’re an individual investor or work with a financial advisor, our objective is to help simplify the process and present information that’s user friendly.  

A category that everyone seems to have a unique opinion on is airlines.

The airline industry is one of the largest consumer industries in the world, which reached $710 billion in revenue last year, according to the International Air Transport Association.

Despite its recent success, the industry has proved to be sensitive to global economic volatility. For example, in 2008 and 2009 during the economic recession, the industry was hard hit when it lost over $30 billion in net profits.

In addition to passenger airlines, the industry also includes the aircraft leasing and airport operating sectors, offering a number of opportunities for the investor.

At TheStreet, we have taken a look at the overall industry, and offer a comprehensive analysis of the best and worst within the category.

Here are 22 different airline industry stocks, ranked by our own proprietary quantitative ranking system at, which you can consider for your investment portfolio:

Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. ADS (GOL)
Category: Airlines

Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. provides regular and non-regular air transportation services for passengers, cargoes, and mailbags in Brazil and internationally.

It operates in two segments, Flight Transportation and Smiles Loyalty Program. The company operates a fleet of 150 aircraft, which includes 96 aircraft under operating leases and 46 aircraft under finance leases. It also develops and manages its own or third party's customer loyalty program.

The company has a strategic partnership with Air France-KLM. Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. was founded in 2001 and is based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

TheStreet Ratings team rates GOL LINHAS AEREAS INTELIGENT as a Sell with a ratings score of D. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate GOL LINHAS AEREAS INTELIGENT (GOL) a SELL. This is driven by multiple weaknesses, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its unimpressive growth in net income, generally high debt management risk and poor profit margins."
