This Airline ETF Can Potentially Fly Higher

from ETF Trends October 18, 2019

Tom Lydon, publisher of ETF Trends, wrote that the U.S. Global Jets ETF (JETS) “appears poised to rally in the fourth quarter” despite Boeing’s grounding of the 737 jets. Airlines could be supported by growing revenue from ancillary fees. As a reminder, ancillary fees are non-ticket fees such as extra baggage, flight changes, inflight Wi-Fi and more.

Others are bullish on the industry too. Al Root, reporting for Barron’s, wrote that “things are better than they were for the sector” since the financial crisis as “profit margins have improved and debt is lower.”
