After attending its investor update, Raymond James analysts Savanthi Syth and Matt Roberts see a “pathway to substantial and sustainable shareholder value creation” at Delta Air Lines (DAL). They explain: Bloomberg News Delta held its fourth mid-year investor update primarily focused on providing updated capital deployment targets. The cash flow and capital deployment commentary in general was better than our, and we believe consensus, expectations and continues to position Delta with a lower-risk business model that should generate profitability and shareholder value through the business cycle… Financial targets (largely in-line): We had anticipated Delta to raise its three-year margin/ROIC targets (and, in turn, operating cash flow) based on lower-for-longer fuel expectation.

Experts have questioned the value of the headline growth goal, saying it encourages local and provincial officials to distort their numbers to please Beijing. After decades of breakneck expansion, China’s economy is now decelerating. The government is trying to shift the growth engine away from a reliance … Continue reading
