Business and commercial: AC investors could get a bumpy ride

Canada's number one airline continues to fly high in more ways that one. Those in Canada who follow business and commercial news may know that the last four years have been a roller coaster of changes. But company stock continues to do well as investors continue to buy in on the brand and stay on the same page with the airline's cost-cutting measures.

To top it off, Air Canada recently acquired Air Transat with the deal to close in the second quarter of 2020. Takeover price was $18 per share. Analysts say that if the Transat deal does go through as expected, Air Canada is poised to control nearly half the domestic market. Some analysts are saying, however, regulatory hurdles could still block the sale of Transat to Air Canada and some advise investors to consider selling their Air Canada stock before it heads into a tailspin.

The stock has been a wise investment, but analysts say there is only so much juice that can be squeezed out of an orange. As economic pressure increases, the stock could become volatile. Some suggest selling now while the price is firm.

Business and commercial endeavours often take a lot of pondering. Decisions may be better made after having received the advice of a lawyer in Canada who is experienced in business law. A lawyer will always have the best interests of an entrepreneurial client at heart and will ensure decisions are made adhering to the letter of the law. It is best to be cautious in business and commercial dealings.
