NYMEX:CL1!   Light Crude Oil Futures
462 9 20
The price of oil             has been sliding in the second half of 2014, but airlines have not lowered their prices. Or brought back free meals. Or allowed domestic customers to check in luggage free of charge. So how can one turn flying friendly? Perhaps by purchasing U.S. airline stocks.

The cost of oil             has plunged nearly 48% since the end of June and the market remains stuck in one direction. OPEC nations might make less profit and Russia, Iran and Iraq might be faced with significant economic and social issues. However, individual customers should be in the winning column.

Customers have not fully benefited from oil’s collapse. While gas is cheaper at the pump, food, clothes and airline tickets haven’t declined appreciably. Since these companies will not pass on even some of their profits to customers, then customers will need to extract benefits on their own.

U.S. airline stocks such as American Airlines (AAL) and Delta (DAL) have been surging since October 10, as they became easy choices for investors and short-term speculators. These stocks have been moving in the opposite direction than oil             ( CL1!             ) and they will remain in demand for as long as oil             will be cratering.

The four-week correlation between oil             and American Airlines is near perfect high negative levels. It rarely drops below -.8, and then the correlation doesn’t last more than a few weeks. Things have changed — the high negative correlation has been in place for 1 ½ months.

Only a bounce of the four-week correlation above -.8 would suggest profit taking on American Airlines and Delta.
This run might have one more flight remaining before landing.

It would be of value to know if these airlines were hedged with higher price point. If not are they planning to buyup a supply for next 3-5 years.

To buy up supplies of jet fuel, the airlines need to have plenty of storage tank i suppose
