I think they're trying to bottom out their stock for a short sale. Anyone know who the biggest sellers of UA stock were as of last month?

Yes at this point it definitely does seem suspicious. Hmm I wonder if its a good time to short them.

Edit: I went and looked at the yearly trends, and if anything it looks like they got a little boost out of all the publicity. Holy fuck the stock market is a terrible idea.

The funny thing is many investors are following the same information. Like investors business daily has their "stocks on the move" or "stock watch" or whatever they are calling it now which is basically stocks that they project will earn well in the short term. Many people just blindly purchase whatever they are showcasing.

Only the people who have no qualms spending a few extra bucks actually boycotted united, everyone else was happy the prices dropped. I know 2 couples who immediately bought tickets through them after the fight club. One did it because of the lowered price on a trip they were already planning, the other couple went on an impromptu vacation that they could suddenly afford. Sure, united took a cut in price per ticket, but I'm pretty sure they more than made up for it in new volume.

It does seem intentional

Nah their stock has barely moved. Infact it's up 5 points from April 17th. Airlines' stocks are generally are really inelastic because of their high valued assets and their monopolies at certain airports.

It's the MSM trying to cash in on the clicks due to recent events.
