NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of American Airlines (AAL) - Get Report are falling 3.65% to $31.93 late Monday morning as airline stocks are lower following the nightclub shooting in Orlando this weekend and a bombing at an airport in Shanghai.
Fifty people were killed and another 53 were injured in a mass shooting at gay nightclub Pulse at about 2 a.m. EDT on Sunday. The shooter Omar Mateen was among those killed.
This is the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. and the nation's worst terror attack since 9/11, authorities told CNN.
During the attack, Mateen called 911 to pledge allegiance to ISIS and mentioned the Boston Marathon bombers, CNN added.
Airline stocks are often pressured in the wake of terrorist acts due to concerns that people will become less likely to travel because of safety fears.
Air travel-related stocks are also being pressured by a bombing at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport on Sunday afternoon, which left five people injured.
Police blamed the explosion on a migrant factory worker with debts from online gambling, who had told friends he was about to begin a suicide mission, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Hold" rating with a score of C- on the stock.
The primary factors that have impacted the rating are mixed. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity and good cash flow from operations.
However, the team also finds weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, generally higher debt management risk and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.
