We found an airline that hasn’t been in the news for treating customers like cattle! Perhaps those flying around Hawaii are just in a better move? All joking aside, our models have upgraded Hawaiian Holdings–parent of Hawaiian Airlines–to STRONG BUY.

Hawaiian Holdings (HA) is a holding company of Hawaiian Airlines. Hawaiian Airlines is the largest airline headquartered in Hawaii. They are engaged primarily in the scheduled transportation of passengers, cargo and mail. Scheduled passenger service consists of daily service between Hawaii and Las Vegas, Nevada and the four key United States West Coast gateway cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco, California, Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon; daily service among the major islands of Hawaii; and bi-weekly service to Pago Pago, American Samoa, Papeete and Tahiti.

The company recently reported earnings for Q1 2017. At that time, the CEO, Mark Dunkerly, note that “the year has started extremely well. Strong demand coupled with benign industry capacity growth in our geographies have given us a robust operating environment sufficient to more than offset the impact of the rising price of fuel.”

For Q1, the company showed net income of @$37 million or $0.68/share. This was down from the same quarter last year, when the company reported income of $0.95/share. Revenues were up @11% with the company reporting $614.2 million vs $551.2 million last year. Investors have taken notice of the stock, and the share price increased @17% during the month of April.
