    • The EPA says greenhouse gases from aircraft endanger human health, a finding that begins a process to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from the aviation industry, the latest sector to be regulated under the Clean Air Act after cars, trucks and power plants.
    • The endangerment finding allows the EPA to implement domestically a global carbon dioxide emissions standard being developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization; the airline industry favors a global standard over individual national standards since airlines operate all over the world and want to avoid a patchwork of rules and measures.
    • GEVO, which has been working on renewable fuels for airplanes, is +3.5% today and +27% so far this month in anticipation of the EPA findings.
    • Also higher are REGI +2%, SZYM +2.5%, AMRS +2%.

    • The jittery airline sector is having a volatile day once again.
    • Capacity concerns have been the major focus of sellers, although the strong move higher of oil prices today is also in the background.
    • American Airlines Group reported a drop in its load factor earlier as capacity growth came in ahead of revenue passenger miles.
    • Though Raymond James issued a biting downgrade on American, United Continental, and Delta yesterday - some analysts such as Sterne Agee CRT's Michael Derchin think the pessimism is overdone.
    • Q2 conference calls could calm fears on capacity running hot, reasons the analyst.
    • A higher level of buybacks in the sector and reasonable valuations based on earnings projections are also factors.
    • Sector watch: Alaska Air Group (ALK -6.4%), Southwest Airlines (LUV -5.8%), SkyWest (SKYW -3.4%), Hawaiian Holdings (HA -4.7%), Spirit Airline (SAVE -4.4%), Delta Air Lines (DAL -3.7%), Allegiant Travel (ALGT -3.6%), Republic Airways (RJET -2.9%), Virgin America (VA -2.6%), United Continental (UAL -1.8%), American Airlines Group (AAL -2%), JetBlue (JBLU -1.9%).
    • The U.S. Global Jets ETF (NYSE:JETS) is down 2.96% on the day.
    • Previously: American Airlines Group's capacity up 2% in May

    • The airline sector has been rattled this month by an indication from Southwest Airlines of a slight increase in capacity and some RevPAR tallies below expectations.
    • Concerns on pricing and capacity have held back some analysts from setting higher price targets on the group for the next year.
    • Over the last year, most airline stocks have showed a high degree of correlation with oil prices despite all the other factors that impact profits in the sector.
    • Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV), United Continental (NYSE:UAL), Alaska Airlines Group (NYSE:ALK), and Allegiant Travel (NASDAQ:ALGT) all had a correlation coefficient of -0.90 or lower between their daily closing share price and the level of oil. A mark of -1.0 indicates perfect negative correlation - while 0.0 indicates no correlation and +1.0 is perfect positive correlation.
    • American Airlines Group (NASDAQ:AAL), Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL), JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU), Republic Airways (NASDAQ:RJET), and Hawaiian Airlines (NASDAQ:HA) were all at -0.80 or lower.
    • Over a shorter period due to its IPO launch, the correlation coefficient on Virgin America (NASDAQ:VA) vs. oil came in at -0.733.
    • The U.S. carriers marching with the most independence from oil prices were Spirit Airlines (NASDAQ:SAVE) at -0.622 and SkyWest (NASDAQ:SKYW) at -0.701.

    • Airline stocks trade higher to help take some of the sting off recent declines generated in the sector.
    • Some analysts see the strong free cash flow trends in the industry offsetting concerns over pricing and capacity.
    • Hawaiian Holdings (HA +6.7%), United Continental (UAL +3.2%), Spirit Airline (SAVE +2.1%) and JetBlue (JBLU +2.6%) are making the sharpest moves on the day.

    • Airline stocks stretched their losing streak to six sessions today, the longest such stretch since last October and the worst cumulative showing (-8.8%) since shedding 10.9%, also in October.
    • Analysts cite pressure from concerns over capacity growth and the resulting lack of pricing power, as well as a May spike in west coast jet fuel prices due to several unscheduled refinery outages; "jet fuel assumptions at airlines may have to be raised due to the high cost of refining jet fuel on the west coast," Cowen's Helane Becker says.
    • Even as he remains somewhat bullish on the stocks, UBS analyst Darryl Genovesi today cut his earnings estimates this year and next for American (NASDAQ:AAL), Delta (NYSE:DAL) and Alaska Air (NYSE:ALK), and lowered his estimate for Southwest (NYSE:LUV) earnings this year and United (NYSE:UAL) in 2016.
    • Among some of the more active airline stocks, DAL has fallen 11%, JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) has shed 8.7%, AAL has plunged 15%, and LUV has sunk 14% over the past six sessions.

    • Aggressive positioning by airlines this week has led to some sharp share prices declines.
    • American Airlines indicated it would match lower fares from peers, while Southwest Airlines added capacity on some key routes.
    • Lower oil prices and stronger demand in the business segment has sparked some of the capacity growth.
    • Airline stocks: LUV, AAL, DAL, JBLU, SAVE, ALK, HA, VA, RJET, UAL.

    • Airline stocks are making a strong move lower after oil prices react to supply data out of the U.S. and Japan along with renewed tension in Yemen.
    • Some sector analysts have noted the swings in airline share prices (up/down) are outsized compared to the impact on jet fuel prices of daily developments in the crude oil market.
    • Platts has a breakdown of how supply and demand forces in the jet fuel market bring other factors into play.
