Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about American Airlines Group stock:

  • 1. Imperial Capital analysts commented, "We are maintaining our In-Line rating and our EPS estimates on AAL shares, but lowering our price target to $46 from $51, reflecting increased competitive concerns. Our price target is about 9% above the recent share price. We are maintaining our 1Q17 EPS estimate of $0.50, our FY17 estimate of $4.50, and our FY18 estimate of $5.35. Our $46 price target now assumes the stock trades 6.75x FY18E TEV/EBITDAR, versus 7.0x previously, and 8.5x FY18E EPS, versus 9.0x previously." (3/17/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of American Airlines outperformed the broader market in the last six months. The company reported better-than-expected revenues but in-line earnings in the fourth quarter of 2016. Total revenue per available seat miles (TRASM) improved 1.3% in the reported quarter. This was the first quarter in which the metric grew on a year-over-year basis, since the fourth quarter of 2014. Further improvement in the metric is expected in the first quarter. Increasing labor costs are, however, expected to continue hurting the bottom line. Consolidated CASM (excluding fuel and special items) is projected to increase 9% in the first quarter of 2017. Nonetheless, we are impressed by the company's efforts to reward shareholders. The efforts to modernize its fleets are also encouraging." (2/8/2017)
