Republic Airways Holdings (RJET) Weak On High Volume Today

Trade-Ideas LLC identified Republic Airways Holdings ( RJET) as a weak on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Republic Airways Holdings as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • RJET has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $4.3 million.
  • RJET has traded 149,204 shares today.
  • RJET is trading at 2.35 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.
  • RJET is trading at a new low 5.02% below yesterday's close.

'Weak on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as material stock news, analyst downgrades, insider selling, selling from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and traders are piling out of a stock ahead of a catalyst. Regardless of the impetus behind the price and volume action, when a stock moves with strength and volume it can indicate the start of a new trend on which early investors can capitalize (or avoid losses by trimming weak positions). In the event of a well-timed trading opportunity, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends and a disciplined trading methodology should help you take the first steps towards investment success.

TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Republic Airways Holdings as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, generally higher debt management risk and disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 5.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 2.6%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • 38.62% is the gross profit margin for REPUBLIC AIRWAYS HLDGS INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of RJET's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, RJET's net profit margin of 0.85% is significantly lower than the industry average.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 3.74 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. To add to this, RJET has a quick ratio of 0.59, this demonstrates the lack of ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • Current return on equity is lower than its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of weakness within the company. In comparison to the other companies in the Airlines industry and the overall market, REPUBLIC AIRWAYS HLDGS INC's return on equity is significantly below that of the industry average and is below that of the S&P 500.
