United Continental: On Course to Lose Money Next Quarter?

The result has been rapid margin deterioration. In Q1, United's adjusted pre-tax margin plunged to 2.3% from 8.4% a year earlier. Its adjusted pre-tax margin fell by just 1.3 percentage points in Q2 (from 14.5% to 13.2%). However, margin erosion accelerated again in Q3 , as United's pre-tax margin fell to 10.4% from 15.7% a year earlier.

Looking at the first three quarters together, United's adjusted pre-tax margin has fallen by more than 4 percentage points, reaching 9%. The company's Q4 guidance implies that it will suffer an even bigger margin decline this quarter.

The Q1 outlook isn't good

United's management blamed the weak Q3 performance on rising fuel prices, the impact of Hurricane Harvey, and some strategy missteps. It attributed the weak fourth-quarter margin outlook to higher fuel prices (again) and the timing of school vacations in December.

However, while United Continental wants to attribute its problems to short-term issues, it will still encounter plenty of headwinds in 2018. On the cost side, oil prices continue to rise. Based on the recent price of jet fuel, United could end up paying close to $2.00/gallon next quarter, up from $1.71/gallon in Q1 2017. That would be a 2- to 3-percentage-point year-over-year headwind to its pre-tax margin.
