What airline is the best to invest in at this point. I am leaning toward investing in Continental because they took the biggest hit. Anybody else have any suggestions or comments?

For heavens sake don't invest in any airline stocks...go for a put option derivative and you'll make tons.

Purchasing stock right now requires caution. There's a chance the airline you invest in might collapse because of the fragile state of the airline industry. However, if the airline you invest in pulls through and its price rises then great! I just wish I could see into the future...

I have friends that though Nortel was a bargain when it first fell from $110 down to $70....now whereis it, around $7. Don't make the same mistake...thats why I reccomend a put option.

You're young. Buy a company that you know will be around for a long time to come.

I think Delta is a prime example. I can't think of a reason why they wouldn't be around in 15 years.

Delta is very low now. As they say buy low and sell high.

You should buy into UAL. They will certainly rebound, just wait.




I love America. I guess that makes me Bush's poodle, but I'd rather be a dog in New York City than a prince in Riyadh.

I would buy stock in either UAL or DAL. Both airlines will rebound, but you will have to be in it for quite a while and let it ride.

These are my thoughts.

Any of the major airlines (UAL, AMR, CAL) will get out of this crisis. However you should not expect steady gains for the next few months. For example, UAL gain approximately 9% today. This might be lost tomorrow.

You have to invest moderately and for long term gains.

Is ATA worth looking at because they allow their planes to be used as troop carriers? Any value in that alliance?

ChrisNH-The government will pay back the airline, but how much I don't know. I remember PanAm got very very little for their Vietnam efforts.

ChrisNH,

UA is also known to transport our troops. Remeber the Gulf War? UA flew many troops over there.

The best option now is to spread risk around. Do not invest in one stock, but take out several.
Then, if one of those companies does not make it, the other stocks may well compensate and at the very least you won't have lost money on the deal (if they all collapse you're still out of luck of course).
Also consider foreign airlines trading at your favourite exchange. They may well recover more quickly as their initial damage was smaller.
