Hedgeye issues some negative comments on the airline sector (AAMRQ.PK, LCC, UAL, DAL, LUV, HA, JBLU, ALK, RJET, ALGT, SAVE): 1) The firm notes that with the merger of U.S. Airways and American Airlines now set, a big catalyst is removed and the path toward actual integration and synergies is still slow. 2) Even if industry consolidation supports a higher fare environment, new low-cost carriers will pop up. 3) Is bigger really better? Several transportation industries have struggled after consolidation instead of thrived.
