Copa Airlines’ Stock Has Stalled, But Earnings Keep Soaring
In my search for stable companies with growing earnings and trading at a discount, I found Copa Holdings SA (CPA). The airline company has been steadily growing throughout the years. The value of the stock has been increasing along with the company’s growth until this year. There is now a disconnect between Copa’s growth and the movement of its stock. The stock is now down 10 percent year-to-date while its earnings are up 35.5 percent for the past twelve months. One thought is that the stock has outrun its earnings and was due for a pullback, but it is only trading at a P/E of 13.20. I decided to take a closer look at the company to see if its stock was worth buying. Read more...
