What are analysts saying about Alaska Air Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Alaska Air Group stock:

  • Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Alaska reported its first quarter following the close of its Virgin America acquisition so results were fairly messy but, in general, results were generally in line with expectations while the guidance was generally better than expected. The 4Q RASM decline of 0.3% on a pro-forma basis was slightly better than expected. Management indicated that January RASM for Alaska standalone declined 3% y/y so we're modeling a ~1.5% decline for 1Q which assumes a modestly positive February and low single digit decline in March based on the shift of Easter into April. Alaska's 2017 CASM-ex guidance of flat y/y was better than expected as the company benefits from a favorable purchase accounting adjustment of ~$50m which benefits CASM-ex by roughly 1pt. Even without the purchase accounting benefit, it's a pretty impressive guidance out of the gate and reinforces the quality of management, in our view, though we question whether it was too aggressive relative to risk related to integration and recognizing cost synergies. While the very modest competitive capacity facing Alaska sets it up to perhaps surprise on the upside with RASM, we maintain our Hold over some concerns that cost headwinds associated with a new pilot agreement are more significant than some appreciate and could impair the bullish thesis predicated on attractive valuation." (2/9/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Alaska Air Group has outperformed the broader industry over the past three months. It became the fifth-largest U.S. airline after it completed the acquisition of Virgin America. The buyout helped Alaska Air Group to significantly expand its presence, particularly in the West Coast. The deal also gave the carrier greater access to key cities across the U.S. Alaska Air Group is now striving to get the Federal Aviation Administration certification. Following receipt of the operating certificate, which is expected to take one year, the two airlines can operate as a single carrier. Apart from the deal, we are positive on the flight services to Havana and new services from Portland and San Francisco." (1/16/2017)

  • Cowen and Company analysts commented, "May's unit revenue was consistent with reports from other airlines who did not see improvement from April to May. Alaska will see a sequential decline in capacity growth from 1H to 2H, which should help stabilize the company's unit revenue," Becker wrote in a note.Related Link: Alaska Airlines Launches Seasonal, Non-Stop ServiceAlaska Air also updated second-quarter investor guidance and "continues to forecast capacity growth of 11 percent, with mainline capacity up by 9.5 percent." However, the company sees capacity slowing in 2H, growing at about 4.5 percent down from about 12 percent in the first half. Furthermore, Alaska Air forecasts second-quarter non-fuel unit costs to decline by 1.5 percent, compared to the previous 1 percent decline. "May pricing was somewhat choppy and June continues to remain challenged. We expect to see a modest m/m improvement," (6/14/2016)
