About the Airline Stock Index
As you might have expected, these stocks will take you places... literally. People love to hate airlines when it comes to flight cancellations, lost bags and long lines. But the truth is, airlines are massive companies that make for interesting investments, especially if you are willing to take on a bit of risk to add some growth to your portfolio.
You can't talk about airline stocks without talking about jet fuel. While you may not see that big of a difference at the pump, low oil prices are fueling a surge in airline stock prices. The shear buying power of these travel giants results in a low fuel cost environment that has a nice effect on their bottom line.
