Alaska Air Group Inc. stock (NYSE: ALK) is up around 5% in the past week, strongly outperforming the S&P 500 which was up a marginal 0.4% over this period. If you look at the change over the last ten days and one month, too, the stock has returned 0.7% and 0.04%, still performing better than the broader markets which dropped around 4% on both occasions. ALK’s most recent Q2 ’22 earnings, saw revenue rising from $1.53 billion in Q2 ’21 to $2.66 billion in Q2 ’22, driven by a rise across all segments. However, with surging fuel costs, the company reported operating income of $187 million, down from $549 million for Q2 ’21. Due to this, the company’s net earnings dropped, and EPS came in lower at $1.10, compared to $3.18 in Q2 ’21.

Now, is Alaska Air stock set to continue its outperformance or could we expect a pullback? We believe that there is a decent 56% chance of a rise in ALK stock over the next month (21 trading days) based on our machine learning analysis of trends in the stock price over the last ten years.
