Oscar Stock #9 –
Southwest Airlines (LUV)
This wonderful animated film is about a loving husband named Carl who loses his wife and best friend in his golden years and becomes a bit of a
crank as a result. But thanks to the help of a bumbling “Wilderness Explorer” tot named Russell, Carl fulfills his lifelong dream to visit
the South American wonder known as Paradise Falls. The family movie won Best Animated Picture at the Oscars.
In Up, Carl’s preferred mode of transportation is a house tethered to hundreds of helium balloons. Since the FAA frowns upon such
behavior and prefers that travelers use boring old airplanes to get around, Southwest (LUV)
is a much better way to profit from the business of travel. The company continually ranks highly with customers, and has topped Wall Street forecasts
by 50% in each of the last two quarterly reports.
