    • Crumbling oil prices haven't helped the Dow Jones Transportation Average (NYSEARCA:IYT) - down 19% year-to-date vs. the DJIA's (NYSEARCA:DIA3% loss.
    • Oppenheimer technician Ari Wald isn't seeing a bottom though. He expects the Transports to break below 7,400 support (last night's close was 7,415), and with it the DJIA to slip to the 16K area (last night's close 17,252).

    • Airline fares rose 1.2% M/M in November to follow a 1.5% increase in October, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    • The average fare in November was 3.8% lower than the level from a year ago on an unadjusted basis after promotional activity in the first half of the year factored in.
    • The read on airline fares could calm some anxiety over PRASM forecasts from key carriers. It's also worth noting again that fuel costs are down 40% to 50% for carriers on the year-over-year comparison.

    • Airline stocks confounded some investors this week by not reacting favorably to a sharp drop in crude oil prices or monthly traffic reports which showed improvement in load factors. Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) in particular rattled the market.
    • The focus in the sector remains locked on the key PRASM metric (passenger revenue per available seat mile) which has been guided lower by several carriers due to fare pressure.
    • "We believe there has been a softening in domestic fares in off-peak periods compared to what seen toward the end of October when airlines provided initial guidance updates, " noted Raymond James in an update to investors.
    • Some industry insiders see fares leveling out or increasing next year as airlines adjust to their increased levels of capacity. That development could provide a nice recovery for PRASM with crude oil prices expected to stay low for most of 2016 and booking trends strong.
    • Airlines trading with a forward price-to-earnings ratio below 10 include Spirit Airlines (NASDAQ:SAVE), Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL), United Continental (NYSE:UAL), American Airlines Group (NASDAQ:AAL), SkyWest (NASDAQ:SKYW), and Virgin America (NASDAQ:VA). JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) and Southwest are just slightly over the 10 PE mark. Many of the above names are listed as top holdings of the U.S. Global Jets ETF (NYSEARCA:JETS).

    • JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) is down 2.7% after hours to $24.75 after reporting its revenue passenger miles (RPMs, traffic) rose 14.2% Y/Y in November to 3.4B, and its available seat miles (ASMs, capacity) 10.7% to 4.05B. RPMs and ASMs respectively rose 11.8% and 11.1% in October.
    • Load factor was 83.9% vs. 84% in October and 81.4% a year ago. Revenue passengers rose 13.2% Y/Y to 2.88M, and departures 7.7% to 25,764.
    • Passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) rose 2% Y/Y, after dropping 2% in October. PRASM is said to be "negatively impacted in [Q4] by the timing of year-end Holidays and a higher completion factor than expected, due to better operational performance and more favorable winter weather than anticipated."
    • Update: Also of note: JetBlue expects Q4 PRASM to be down 2%-3% Y/Y.

    • A global travel warning issued by the U.S. Department is impacting several sectors. Hotel stocks are notably weaker, while amusement park stocks are also trailing broad market averages. Airlines are feeling a double whammy from travel demand concerns and a 3% rise in crude oil futures.
    • In some cases the sell-off appears to be an overreaction with little evidence in that travel habits will change dramatically, according to some analysts.
    • Decliners include Hyatt Hotels (H -1.5%), Hilton Worldwide (HLT -1.1%), Marriott International (MAR -1.8%), JetBlue (JBLU -1.7%), Delta Air Lines (DAL -3.3%), American Airlines Group (AAL -2.4%), United Continental (UAL -3.2%), Allegiant Travel (ALGT -5.3%), Spirit Airlines (SAVE -4.1%), Southwest Airlines (LUV -2.7%), Six Flags (SIX -1.0%), Cedar Fair (FUN -1.0%), Disney (DIS -0.9%), and Sabre (SABR -3.9%), Virgin Amerinca (VA -2.5%), Alaska Air Group (ALK -1.5%).

    • Airline fares increased 1.5% M/M in October to break a streak of monthly declines, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    • The average fare was still 5.2% lower than the level from a year ago on an unadjusted basis.
    • The slight increase in fares is a positive development for the sector after Q3 earnings were pinched on highly competitive pricing in key markets.
