Analysts' Thoughts

Delta stock has been a strong performer in 2019, and after selling off with the overall market in May the stock has already recovered most of its previous losses and is once again approaching its all-time high ahead of the upcoming quarterly report. Delta has posted positive earnings surprises seven straight quarters, and the street expects another small beat with a $2.20 whisper number. Delta is sensitive to oil prices, which have cooled after topping $85 a barrel in October and have hovered in the mid to upper $60s for most of 2019. Delta’s rise to all-time highs has come as the company has grown profits 12.3% annually over the last five years and analysts forecast annual earnings growth of 12.8% for the next five years. Despite shares approaching their highs, DAL remains a very attractive value, with the stock trading at just 9.8 times earnings and 8.2 times future earnings. With the low valuation and high earnings estimates the stock should continue to build on its recent gains, but any run up in oil could put a ceiling on the stock. Analysts have a bullish average price target of $67.08 on the stock.
