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, "Allegiant has been benefiting from strong passenger revenues on the back of impressive travel demand. Passenger revenues increased 11.8% in 2018. The company's projection for 2019 earnings is also bullish. It expects earnings per share in the range of $13.25-$14.75, whose mid-point is more than 30% above the 2018-levels. The company’s measures to reward shareholders through share buybacks and dividends are appreciative as well. Its fleet modernization efforts are another positive. However, the company's high debt levels are a drag. Additionally, in the event of the company's provisional pay-related deal inked with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, representing Allegiant's flight dispatchers, failing to materialize, the stock might be hurt. In fact, shares of the company have declined 23.7% in a year's time. " (4/2/2019)
  • 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)
