The airline hasn’t had the massive layoffs of the other major airlines in part because it gave employees a choice.

It’s a rough time to be an airline.

Look no further than the decisions by United and American to impose massive layoffs and furloughs that began on October 1. That was the date airlines had agreed to when they received assistance from the U.S. government. Between them, those two companies say as many as 35,000 employees may lose their jobs, at least in the short term.

While the airline industry has pushed for a second round of aid to preserve jobs through next March, it’s unclear whether that will happen. The President tweeted that he believes Congress should provide $25 billion for airlines despite previously indicating that there would be no further pandemic-related assistance package until after the election.

Of all the businesses affected by the pandemic, I think it’s fair to say that airlines have faced some of the greatest challenges. Not only are people simply not traveling as much (or at all), but when they do, airlines face the enormous responsibility of keeping them safe.

That combination of decreased demand and increased safety expenses makes it very hard for airlines to make money. As the entire industry has canceled flights and reduced overall capacity, it may seem logical that the quickest way to reduce expenses is to furlough employees.

Delta, however, is taking a different approach. It said in September that it will avoid furloughing flight attendants, and has delayed any pilot reductions until at least November 1. That is largely the result of the company’s

JetBlue  (JBLU) – Get Report, United Airlines  (UAL) – Get Report and Spirit Airlines  (SAVE) – Get Report all saw their shares rise Wednesday as J.P. Morgan analyst Jamie Baker upgraded them amid expectations of a recovery for the industry in 2022.

JetBlue received a double upgrade.

Airline stocks also have benefited from President Donald Trump on Tuesday called on Congress to approve $25 billion in aid for airlines. 

As for J.P. Morgan, an industry recovery in 2022 signals “upside potential in excess of 40%” for several stocks, Baker said in a commentary cited by Bloomberg.

He upgraded JetBlue, Long Island City, N.Y., to overweight from underweight, lifting his share-price target to $17 from $12. 

JetBlue recently traded at $12.11, up 5.2%. The shares have slumped 34% year to date. 

He upgraded Chicago-based United Airlines to overweight from neutral, boosting its share-price target to $52 from $44. 

United recently traded at $35.96, up 3.1%. The stock has dropped 58% year to date.

And he upgraded Spirit Air, Miramar, Fla., to neutral from underweight, increasing his share-price target to $19 from $14.

Spirit recently traded at $16.11, up 32.3%. The stock has fallen 60% year to date.

Still, “we wouldn’t extrapolate these changes to mean a renewed bullishness for 2021 fundamentals; quite the opposite, in fact,” Baker said.

Airline stocks dropped sharply Tuesday after Trump pulled his negotiators out of talks with Congress on a fiscal-stimulus package. 

He tweeted that the Senate would no longer consider the $2.2 trillion stimulus bill proposed by House Democrats, dashing hopes for airlines that they might be able to hold off large-scale furloughs and layoffs.

The results are in for FY20 for United Natural Foods (NYSE:UNFI), and the highlights are pretty amazing (from press release):

  • Reduced outstanding debt, net of cash, by $388 million; year-end adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio of 4.0x
  • Net sales increased to $26.5 billion
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased to $673 million
  • Adjusted EPS increased to $2.72

Despite beating earnings and revenue estimates, and raising FY21 guidance, the stock has sold off over 20%. Some are attributing this to the CEO’s retirement announcement, but given the nine-month timetable on that decision, the explanation leaves investors wanting more. No UNFI thesis on Seeking Alpha has referenced the management team as a company strength, and if anything, the mistakes and debt burden from the Supervalu acquisition are a reminder of the team’s missteps.

Possible other explanations:

  • Q4 cash generation fell short of investor expectations
  • Relatively significant number of shares (~2m) granted to management, diluting investors
  • Lack of CEO successor
  • Lack of Whole Foods contract extension
  • Margin pressure on FY21 revenue

While all of these could be part of the story, I still don’t see it. It is true that management expects Q3/Q4 21 to be tough comps Y/Y, but the fact it continues to guide above expectations for revenue and EBITDA after a blowout year shouldn’t be taken for granted. It has a good track record of setting reasonable guidance it can beat, which is even more encouraging.

Regarding the Whole Foods contract, the last extension was announced Nov 2nd, 2015. I expect a similar announcement in the coming couple quarters, removing a significant overhang from the stock.


Updating the valuation waterfall, I’ve included company guidance for FY21, assuming cash balance and market cap at current levels, and showing debt paydown of $310 which reflects EBITDA midpoint of $710m, less $225m for CapEx and
