Delta Air Lines technical commentary ahead of results

The shares are trading not far from life highs ahead of earnings news. Prior to the current range which has been volatile, the stock was trading largely between $40 at the low and $50 at the high. If we see a breakout above the life high at $52.76, it would be a strong technical positive and a decisive bullish range break. A move up to the $55 to $57.50 area would be possible. If the news is a negative surprise, price could slip back below the $50 area. Next support levels to watch below $50 as potential downside objectives would be at $47.90, $46.98, $45.66, and $44.81.

Delta Air Lines enters partnership with Aeromexico
Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico accepted the final order issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation granting them antitrust immunity and allowing the airlines to establish a joint cooperation agreement. This historic agreement will establish the largest transborder alliance between Mexico and the United States, expand competition and benefit customers of both airlines. Delta will offer a strong presence in the United States through its hubs in Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York, Salt Lake City and Seattle; while Aeromexico will offer larger access to Mexico through its hubs in Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara. The airlines have been partners for 22 years. The regulatory approval represents an important milestone in the process, announced last year, to launch a cash tender offer for Delta's acquisition for up to 49 percent of Grupo Aeromexico S.A.B. de C.V., capital stock, further strengthening the partnership between the two airlines.

Airline stocks should benefit from fiscal stimulus, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Michael Linenberg believes stronger GDP growth in 2017, helped by fiscal stimulus initiatives, should be good for economically-sensitive stocks such as airlines. Companies that are domestic-oriented, pay cash taxes, have low financial leverage and can take advantage of bonus depreciation should outperform, Linenberg tells investors in a research note. He likes shares of Southwest (LUV), JetBlue (JBLU), Spirit Airlines (SAVE), Allegiant Travel (ALGT) and Alaska Air (ALK). Delta Air Lines (DAL) is his top pick among the majors.
