Airline sector weakness a buying opportunity, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Helane Becker noted airline stocks came under pressure as investors grew concerned about capacity growth by United Continental (UAL) and fears it would destroy the fare structure. The analyst noted the capacity growth is in small markets where they might make a difference but that RASM is up year-over-year. Becker would be a buyer of Alaska Air (ALK), Delta Air (DAL), American Airlines (AAL) and Southwest Air (LUV) on the pullback, but would avoid United Continental shares.
