About Southwest Airlines
Southwest Airlines is the largest low-cost carrier (LCC) in North America and the only US-listed airline to have an investment grade credit rating. Its low-cost operations, domestic US leisure focus, highly experienced management team, and strong balance sheet helped the company to weather the COVID-19 pandemic better than peers. The team believed it would be a key beneficiary as the US economy re-opens and consumer demand normalises on the successful rollout of a COVID-19 vaccine. This was a proprietary trading idea of the desk after extensive market/sector analysis. The team also consulted with our in-house aviation expertise as well as third party research to help to inform this view.
As you’ll see in the chart and the table below – the team bought and sold this idea two times as part of the Best 8 basket between June and December 2020, generating strong trading profits each time. This example highlights the benefit of partnering with a team that not only can generate strong trading ideas for clients but can also navigate short-term volatility, gauge entry and exit points, and stick to strict money management discipline – all necessary ingredients for a successful trade.
