Never buy an airline, right?

I came across a post by Edmund Shing on CommuniFin, and I noticed that he recommended EZJ (easyJet) for 2015. I only have a decade’s worth of data available to me, but I notice that EZJ’s revenues has risen each year during that time. Over 10 years, its shares have risen by 722%, compared to 32% for the Footsie.

Turning to DTG (Dart Group), its revenues have increased almost every year; in 2010 the revenues where a shade lower than the preceeding year. Its gain is not quite as good: it had a market cap of £98.8m in June 2005, compared with £425.77m as of today, which means it has gained about 330%. None too shabby. Note that DTG had a stock split in 2006, which looks miscalculated on Google and Yahoo. I’m using historical market cap figures from SharelockHolmes to perform my calculations.
