Dahlman Rose downgrades most airline stocks (airline index XAL -0.8%), citing higher fuel costs and the potential for less demand following fare hikes. Even with airlines down already this year, Dahlman expects weak Q1 earnings will stall any rebound. These shares are downgraded: DAL +1.9%, UAL +0.3%, AMR -2.9%, LCC -2%, JBLU -2.6%, HA +0.3%, RJET -4.1%, CPA -1.1%, WJA -1%.

  • If oil continues to rise, this sector won't drop much more. So airline stocks could serve as a nice hedge to an oil-up portfolio just in case oil prices start falling. I like HA.
