JetBlue falls as 4Q2010 revenue and profit fails to meet expectations

28-Jan-2011

JetBlue fell 1.2% amid high trading volumes as the carrier's 4Q2010 profit disappointed the market, falling 18% to USD9 million, due to rising fuel, maintenance, labour and promotion expenses.

Revenue surged 13% to USD940 million, reflecting an 11% increase in passenger numbers and a 4% increase in average fares.

Dahlman Rose upgraded United Continental Holdings from "hold" to "buy". Its stock closed 4.5% higher, while Southwest Airlines' shares were marginally higher on Thursday.

Elsewhere, Santander issued a "buy" rating on Brazilian LCC GOL. Its shares fell 2.4% yesterday.
