Allegiant Travel, a low-cost airline company based in Las Vegas, shows strong fundamentals which should allow its shares to pursue its ascent.
Despite a high valuation, analysts polled by Thomson Reuters have recently revised upward the earning per share estimates for 2013. Last quarterly earnings publications reported a 15% increase in revenues to $273 million and a 47% improvement of its net income for the first quarter of 2013.
Graphically, the security is up 23% since the 1st January. It seems able to continue this uptrend supported by the 20-day moving average and will soon test the USD 92.70 short-term resistance. We anticipate a crossing of this level, given the upward orientation of the stock in the medium and long term. Above USD 92.70, a buy signal will be given.
Therefore, investors could take a long position in Allegiant Travel, on crossing of the USD 92.70 short-term resistance. A first target price will be set at USD 100. A stop loss should be placed under USD 90.
