4 Transportation Sector Research Candidates: Do You Dare Have Your Money Travel With These Stocks?


As a rule, I have never been very fascinated by the Transportation Sector. This is especially true regarding airlines and air transport companies.  Nevertheless, there are two airlines and two air freight carriers in the Transportation Sector that I felt comfortable featuring in this article.

However, I still admit to having trouble suggesting that anyone invest in airlines. But, with that said the two airlines I’m covering in this article are considered among the best-managed airlines in the world. Even then, I would be very cautious before investing in airlines despite the expected future growth that I will be illustrating later in the video associated with this article.

The operating fortunes of air freight couriers are similar in nature to the airlines. However, the big differentiator is that air freight demand is more consistent and predictable than passenger traffic. Consequently, air freight couriers offer more appeal to me personally.
