01-22-2020: Airline Transporation Group Lags Bull Market


Boeing's problems with the design of the 737 MAX jetliner are affecting many airlines adversely which had that model as part of their fleet. So widespread was the problem that the entire airline transportation industry stock group suffered. Actually, it should have reacted to the amount of exposure an individual airline had to Boeing. There will certainly be fewer purchases of Boeing aircraft in future even by American companies and turning instead to the European Airbus planes.

The airline group's lag provides investment opportunities, and it appears the "fundamentals" (financial value) in the group are significantly better than in other groups in the current bull market. Financial ratios and recovering p/e ratios look better in this group. United Airlines Holdings (UAL) is lagging some other airline stocks, but will probably be playing catchup for a while. It is a large company with its stock in a trading range near the upper part of that range, so some timing might be appropriate when buying the stock, but overall it is currently highly favored by analysts as having low risk.

Our recent article on United Airlines Holdings Inc. (UAL) is in the Archives Section Below.

Zenith's Active List of 39 Stocks as of 01/18/2020

(Updated once a week, usually on Saturday except when less than 5 trading days in the week.)

Note: Zenith tries to pick only stocks which are shortable, but sometimes stocks appear afterward on the SEC Regulation SHO list of stocks which are not shortable, which is beyond our control. On some stocks, Zenith may hold more than the number of shares it trades in its inventory. Thus the "short" sale of such a security would technically not be a "short" sale for us and not subject to SEC rules regarding selling securities which are not deliverable. Also, stocks pop on and off the list available for shorting on successive days, so the presence of a stock on the current SHO list doesn't mean it was there at the time it was shorted.

Stocks recently restricted by SEC Rule 201 as not shortable unless we already have a position which are on our Active List include: XPER (06/15)

Stocks 1
Stocks 2
Stocks 3
Stocks 4
Stocks 5

What are the last three entries in the Active Stocks chart list? These represent typical high-, mid-, and low-cap mutual funds to help us gage the tenor of the stock market as a whole.
