Boeing's stock takes a hit after Southwest pushes back estimate of 737 MAX return by a monthShares of Boeing Co. took a hit in afternoon trading Friday, after Southwest Airlines Co. disclosed in an SEC filing that it will be pushing back the expected return of the grounded 737 MAX planes by a month. Boeing's stock was down 1.5%; just before the release of Southwest's 10-Q filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the stock was down 1.0%. Boeing's stock price decline of $5.40 was shaving about 37 points off the Dow Jones Industrial Average's price, which was down 30 points. Southwest shares were down less than 0.1%. Southwest had said last month that it has removed the 737 MAX from its schedules through Feb. 8, 2020, as the air carrier estimates it will take two months to comply with applicable regulatory directives, including necessary training, once the Federal Aviation Administration lifts its order to ground the 737 MAX. "Based on continued uncertainty around the timing of the MAX return to service, the company soon plans to proactively remove the MAX from its flight schedule through March 6, 2020," Southwest stated in the 10-Q. Boeing's stock has gained 4.6% over the past three months and Southwest shares have rallied 15.3%, while the Dow has advanced 4.8%.

The Dangers Southwest Airlines Stock Faces From the 737 MAX’s Return Bernstein’s David Vernon sees expectations getting ahead of themselves for improvement in the company’s performance in 2020 and expects a slower and most costly return of the airline’s 106 737 MAXes.

Southwest's stock falls after Bernstein said investors are too optimistic about 737 MAX returnShares of Southwest Airlines Co. slumped 1.7% in morning trading Thursday, after Bernstein analyst David Vernon downgraded the air carrier, saying investors are too optimistic regarding the return-to-service of Boeing Co.'s 737 MAX planes. Vernon cut his rating to market perform, and has a new stock price target of $61, which is 11% above current levels. The stock has gained 20.4% year to date, to make it the best performer of the Dow Jones Transportation Average's six airline components. In comparison, the Dow transports is up 14.4% this year and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 15.7%. Vernon said Southwest's stock has "held up" through negative earnings estimate revisions on the belief that when the Boeing Co.-made 737 MAX planes returns to service the airline will see an increase in growth and unit cost efficiencies that allow the company to make up some of the significant profit headwind created by the MAX's grounding. "While this thesis seems plausible and will likely be how things will eventually play out, we think the market is pricing in all the good news on the return of the MAX and not appreciating how disruptive its return could be on either the unit revenue or cost fronts," Vernon wrote in a note to clients.

Virgin Galactic shares jump 5% in trading debut as investors bet on human spaceflightShares of Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc. , the space company founded by British billionaire Richard Branson, rose 5% in their trading debut Monday as investors bet on the first public company to take passengers into space. The company went public on the New York Stock Exchange after completing a merger last week with blank-check company Social Capital Hedosophia. The new entity is trading under the ticker symbol "SPCE." "For the first time, anyone will have the opportunity to invest in a human spaceflight company that is transforming the market," Chief Executive George Whitesides said in a statement. The company said last week it already has customer reservations for 600 people in 60 countries, chalking up about $80 million in deposits. The company makes its space vehicles in Mojave, California via a subsidiary called The Spaceship Company, while commercial operations are based at Spaceport America in New Mexico.

JetBlue's stock rallies after J.P. Morgan upgrades, lifts price targetShares of JetBlue Airways Corp. rallied 2.0% in premarket trading Monday, after analyst Jamie Baker at J.P. Morgan turned bullish on the air carrier, citing a more upbeat earnings outlook despite a downbeat Street view. Baker raised his rating to overweight from neutral, and lifted his stock price target to $24 from $23. He expects 2020 earnings per share of $2.67, within JetBlue's guidance range of $2.50 to $3.00 while the FactSet EPS consensus is below the range at $2.40, citing the upbeat metrics of 2.3% growth in total revenue per available seat mile and the 0.7% decline in costs per available seat mile, excluding fuel. "Of the aforementioned drivers, we have the most confidence in the ex-fuel CASM outcome, which is a sharp reversal from how we've viewed the company over the years," Baker wrote in a note to clients. "And [JetBlue] is far from an analyst favorite, as evidenced by the highest [percent] of 'sells' in our universe (and the second-fewest 'buys' after [Spirit Airlines Inc.])." Separately, Baker downgraded Alaska Air Group Inc. to neutral from overweight, citing valuation concerns. Alaska Air's stock slumped 2.5% ahead of the open. JetBlue shares have rallied 16.8% year to date through Friday and Alaska Air's stock has climbed 17.6%, while the NYSE Arca Airline Index has hiked up 18.0% and the S&P 500 has gained 20.6%.
