Getting back on the right foot

Dan Caplinger (Crocs): Many apparel and footwear companies go through a brief period of popularity, establishing a fashion craze that quickly flames out. Crocs appeared to be exactly that sort of company, with its now-famous sandals with holes having created a huge business that sent the stock soaring in 2007.

By last year, shares had lost 90% of their value from the 2007 peak.

Best Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now: SkyWest, Inc.(SKYW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Over the past five years, top regional airline SkyWest (NASDAQ:SKYW) has achieved a remarkable comeback. In 2014, the company was barely profitable, due to a combination of unfavorable weather, rising pilot costs, and the poor profitability of its ExpressJet subsidiary. SkyWest posted a full-year adjusted profit of less than $7 million — on more than $3 billion of revenue — for 2014.

    Of these potential explanations for United’s pending service cuts, the most plausible is that a pilot shortage forced its hand. Of the three routes that will be canceled, two are flown by subsidiaries of SkyWest (NASDAQ:SKYW), while the Champaign/Urbana route is operated by Trans States Airlines.
