SkyWest – Chart Of The Day

The Chart of the Day belongs to SkyWest (NASDAQ:SKYW). I found the air transportation stock by using Barchart to sort the Russell 3000 Index stocks first for a Weighted Alpha above 50.00+ and then again for technical buy signals of 80% or better.

SkyWest, Inc., through its wholly-owned subsidiary, SkyWest Airlines, Inc. , operates one of the larger regional airlines in the United States. SkyWest provides passenger and air freight service and completes over 880 daily flights. Pursuant to a joint marketing and code sharing agreement with Delta Airlines, Inc., SkyWest operates as a Delta Connection in certain SkyWest markets. SkyWest entered into a marketing and code sharing agreement with Continental Airlines, Inc. Which allows SkyWest to operate as a Continental Connection in certain markets in and out of Los Angeles.
