  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Allegiant is being aided by constant efforts to modernize its fleet. In line with its fleet-modernization efforts, the carrier is not only adding new and more efficient planes but retiring old ones. 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. Additionally, Allegiant's efforts to reward shareholders in the form of share buybacks and dividend payments are encouraging. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for current-quarter earnings has increased 3.6% over the last 60 days. This reflects the positivity surrounding the stock. Despite such positives, we are concerned about the company's high debt levels. In fact, shares of the company have underperformed the industry it belongs to in the past year." (12/31/2018)
