As an income-minded value investor, I’m not normally very keen on airline stocks, which collectively have a history of poor profitability and volatile returns.
However, today’s final results from easyJet plc (LON:EZJ) suggest that the UK’s top budget carrier remains a stable, income-paying and reasonably priced stock — and that 2015 could be a bumper year.
easyJet’s growth has been impressive enough, but the company doesn’t seemed to have sacrificed balance sheet strength or profitability to have got there — and I believe the current fall in oil prices could play into easyJet’s hands over the next year.
Is easyJet still a buy? I’d say yes, albeit with one caveat: I took a closer look at easyJet’s results earlier today, and distilled my conclusions into a new article for the Motley Fool, which you can read here.
