Southwest Airlines - Strong Buy of the Month Review

Since recommending Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) back on Sept 16, the stock has enjoyed a 13% 30-day rise despite the overall bearish market conditions and continued rising fuel costs. The airline industry (AMEX:^XAL) rose only 4.5%, in comparison, during the same time period.

The solid showing was fueled by several positive catalysts:
  • 3 separate upgrades from Fulcrum, JP Morgan & Citigroup
  • Interruptions from Hurricane Rita were much less than expected
  • Flights are starting to recover at New Orleans airport
  • September traffic increased 19%

With Southwest's increasingly aggressive pricing, rising growth opportunities, and superior survival prospects, the stock should continue to shine.

Just thought I'd let you know about a site where you can make over $800 a month in extra income. Go to this site   MAKE MONEY NOW  and put in your zip code..... up will pop several places where you can get paid to secret shop, take surveys, etc.  It's free.  I found several and I live in a small town!
