    • Transportation stocks are lower on the day on some broad macroeconomic concerns. Some BAML downgrades in the sector are also weighing on sentiment.
    • Trading is notably weak in CXS Corp (CSX -2.3%), American Railcar Industries (ARII -2.6%), Kansas City Southern (KSU -1.9%), YRC Worldwide (YRCW -5.7%), Heartland Express (HTLD -3.7%), Swift Transportation (SWFT -3%), FedEx (FDX -0.9%), UPS (UPS -0.5%), Air Transport Services (ATSG -1.7%), and Matson (MATX -2.5%).
    • A notable exception to the sector slide is airline stocks which are showing strength after Delta Air Lines (DAL +2.7%) reported some eye-opening capacity constraint. The major carrier increased passenger revenue per available seat mile sand load factor during November. A 3% decline in crude oil prices is also factoring in to the rally in airline stocks.
    • United Continental (UAL +3.2%), Hawaiian Holdings (HA +2.9%), Southwest Airlines (LUV +2.3%), and Republic Airways Holdings (RJET +4.4%) are all solidly higher.
    • The Dow Jones Transportation Average is down 0.8% off the conflicting forces of gravity.

    • AMR (AAMRQ +24%) soars upon settlement of the DOJ suit over its merger with U.S. Airways (LCC -0.6%).
    • The two will divest 52 slot paris at Reagan National and 17 at LaGuardia, as well as two gates each at Logan International, O'Hare, Love Field, LAX, and Miami. Even with the divestitures, the new American is expected to generate net synergies of more than $1B beginning in 2015.

    Shares of UPS (UPS +2.2%) ride the coattails of FedEx higher without any direct news on the company out. With the significant help of the air freight stocks, the Dow Jones Transports (IYT +2.5%) ETF is having itself a nice little day.

    Sterne Agee gets a tepid response from the market after initiating the airliners today: AMR (AMR -0.6%), Allegiant Travel (ALGT -2%), Delta (DAL -2%), JetBlue (JBLU -0.2%) and United Continental (UAL -3.2%) are all started with buys, and US Airways (LCC -3%) and Southwest Airlines (LUV -4%) are initiated with a neutral.

    Airline shares took a hit today as investors anticipate a wave of flight cancellations due to Hurricane Irene. The ripple effects are likely to be felt across the country as flights become grounded throughout major U.S. travel corridors. United Continental (UAL -2.9%), AMR (AMR -2.9%), Delta (DAL -5.8%).
