United +6.1% after reporting June results

Revenue passenger miles were flat Y/Y, while available seat miles increased 0.8%. The airline's consolidated load factor fell 0.6 points to 87.1%.

The performance looks to lag industry averages for June, but is ahead of UAL's previous expectation, and shares are up 6.1% in after-hours trade.

    This is the first "good" news about UAL in a long time. The next step is to determine changes to PRASM that go into quarterly earnings. Since UAL does not provide PRASM guidance, it take a lot of research to look into relative changes to PRASM year-over-year. My reviews of United's ticket pricing tell me that with an 87% load factor, that PRASM will be good. United has not had to discount to fill seats. YOY fare increases that I follow are very strong.

    I can't believe that UAL isn't discussed more. By the end of the day, I had written 15 contracts on UAL. Laddered them out. UAL has been a good option play this year. 19 trades so far.
