This is an index I have created to track airline stocks. It is equally weighted and includes:

  • BA - 1 share
  • AAL - 15 shares
  • UAL - 5 shares
  • DAL - 5 shares
  • SAVE - 9 shares
  • ALK - 5 shares
  • LUV - 5 shares
  • JBLU - 16 shares
Comment: Please leave thought below on why I should or should not leave BA in the index. Thank you!


How did you come up with the number of shares for each? and I would maybe exclude BA even though it is highly correlated it's technically not an airline.

@EBITDAtiger, Thanks for your input. Did an equal weight across everything at the time of creation. I am thinking about rebalancing now that Q1 has ended. I agree that BA should be removed as well. I will be put out another index this weekend.

so am what I'm seeing recommending buying all of these airlines now for a hold? And not sure I understand why considering removing BA as I feel it will definitely hit 300 by year end

@extreamsolutions, I am using this as an airline index. BA has many lines of business that do not apply to commercial airlines. They get a lot of money through work government contracts
Thanks so much for your insight and creativity. Since BA is a UK company, I don't think they fit. It would be interesting to create a "global" airline index to compare to the USA index.
