6 Aircraft Leasing Stocks to Consider for Your Stock Portfolio

Stocks in this article: AYRALFLYAERATSGAAWW

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- With so many different investments options, 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 a way so 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.

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

The overall industry is comprised of different segments, including commercial airlines, airport operating and the aircraft leasing sectors.

The aircraft leasing segment is often overlooked because of its lack of commercial presence. 

Companies in this segment own a variety of aircraft to rent out to commercial airlines or to a wide range of aircraft operators.  Airlines for example, will opt to lease aircraft over buying them for two main reasons: to provide a temporary increase in passenger capacity, and to operate aircrafts without the fiscal responsibility of ownership.

The aircraft leasing industry has experienced tremendous growth worldwide over the past 35 years.  In 1980, less than 5% of airline's fleets were made up of leased aircrafts.  Today, over one-third of the global airline fleet is rented.  In addition, aircraft leasing companies account for over 6,000 available aircraft, whose value totals over $165 billion.

Here are six aircraft leasing stocks, ranked by our own proprietary quantitative ranking system at TheStreetRatings.com, which are worth looking over.  Note that these ratings can change at any time. If you would like access to real-time ratings of these stocks, you can access them by subscribing to TheStreet Quant Ratings.
