Should we sell or go long? This pos isn't doing anything right now
Either decent earnings or a new partnership will rebound it IMO. That's it. The latter moreso.

The good thing is Air Canada changes aren't till 2020. If you are hoping for a quick turnaround, I'd sell. Could payoff but I don't think it'll be soon.

When did you buy this stock?

What has changed since you bought the stock other than the price going down?

I think those are important questions you need to be asking yourself.

from AC's conference call this morning
source: TDDI

No material change in booking patterns from Aeroplan


so I assume there wasn't as big rush to redeem as people feared
I don't know who feared that, except folks who don't think.

The "rush to redeem" will happen in the ~ 6 months close to the relationship expiring. We all know the date the relationship ends, and I don't have any choice with Air Canada, I will keep accruing points until then. So why would I redeem now? I will redeem close to the expiry date when I have accumulated the maximum amount of points so as to minimize waste.

This.

Air Miles announced their expiry date 5 years in advance of the first points expiring. Sheer utter redemption panic and public flogging didn't take place until ~6 months out.

How can the ER be good? They haven't had positive EPS since 2012, revenues have been on the decline since 2014, and they still haven't announced a post-AC plan. Is there even a chance something good will come of this Q report?
I should have shut my big yapper. This Q2 report seems nothing but good, especially the null-effect on points the AC news seems to have caused.

Could be better IMO but could be a LOT worse. I think it is better than most expected. Tomorrow should be interesting.

2017 guidance is maintained sounds like great news considering these estimates were given prior to AC departure news or am I interpreting it incorrectly?
