What are Wall Street analysts saying about Allegiant Travel stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Allegiant Travel stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "We are pleased with Allegiant's efforts to reward shareholders in the form of share buybacks and dividend payments. The company's efforts to modernize its fleet sound impressive. Allegiant aims to maintain an all-airbus fleet by year-end and increase efficiences. The company intends to improve the flying experience of passengers by maintaining a single-fleet type. Moreover, the company's favorable return on equity (ROE) reflects efficient utilisation of shareholder funds. Despite such positives, shares of Allegiant have declined more than 14% on a year-to-date basis. This downturn can be attributed to headwinds like capacity-related woes, safety-related issues, high debt levels and escalating fuel costs. Additionally, the  CBS News' report, 60 Minutes, which had alleged that Allegiant was facing a number of safety-related issues is also a major headwind." (9/11/2018)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Dunkin’ Brands (DNKN) announced 2Q18 (June) pro forma EPS of $0.77, which beat our Street-matching $0.74 estimate. Aggressive buybacks added $0.02 to EPS relative to our pre-release model, with the remaining $0.01 beat due to a revenue beat." (7/26/2018)
