Airline Stocks: The Traveller`s Pain, The Investor`s Gain

Just back from a short visit to New Orleans, with a side trip to Texas. Being a long time economist and a stock market investor, the journey brought some new ideas. The reason: The airports (Newark, New Orleans & Houston) are very crowded and in the airplanes every seat is taken. 

This situation should be good for the airlines, which suffered a lot in the last recession.  The Broker Maxim Group declared today that they expect a spring rally in airline stocks, with the worst of the harsh winter weather behind us. Strong demand is going to allow carriers to pass through much of increased fuel costs to consumers.
