Why Flight Centre’s share price could continue to soar

Since August 20 this year to the time of writing, Flight Centre’s (ASX:FLT) share price has risen almost 66 per cent, from $13.74 to $22.90. It’s been spurred on by investors wanting to profit from the reopening of travel, particularly outbound international travel. And despite being heavily shorted, I believe there are some compelling reasons why the share price has further to run.

  1. FLT I believe issued 77% more shares for the captial raising meaning $23/ share is close to the old $41. Right? Thats damn high ignoring the euphoric near $60 which isnt worth counting.

    • Hey Paul, That’s not quite how we’d measure the impact. It looks elegant but it fails to account for a bunch of things including a lower cost base, impact on ROE from taking market share etc…Much better to examine the impact on equity per share and then incorporate the future expected ROE. Of course all bets are off if another more virulent strain of the virus breaks out!
