AA Stock Down 8% Today!

Mon Apr 17, 2006 10:58 pm

Just checked AA (AMR) stock today.. Its down over $2.00 a share or 8%. Today is the day AA employees get their final batch of stock options, so I guess there is somewhat of a sell off....
Also I guess the spike in oil prices, as well as a forcast 1st Q loss of $185M all have something to do with it....

A somewhat negative article in the Wall Street Journal today is the probable cause. It's one of those no-news articles that is a compliation of the difficulties facing AMR.

I'm surprised it's only 8%....I haven't read the news today but did the article mention anything about their service lately? Such as delays and damaged luggage? I've had a bit of bad luck with AA lately!

My Dad told me he intends to sell his shares today. By doing so he will actually see a good deal of $.

Some airline stocks are up 100% in the last 6-12 months. I think it's time for a reality check... things are not that good yet, especially since DL will be around for a while still in Ch11. I actually bought some LCC puts today.
