Should I Buy EasyJet Shares?

EasyJet Airline Company Ltd is one of Britain’s most well-known airline carriers, specialising in low-cost flights to over 30 countries across Europe and beyond. Due to a rise in demand for cheaper air travel, EasyJet has expanded through numerous acquisitions, most noticeably the purchase of rival company Go Fly in 2002 for a fee £374million. As a result, EasyJet acquired three new bases in Bristol, the East Midlands and London, ultimately doubling the number of Boeing aircraft in its possession.

Along with its associated brands EasyJet Europe and EasyJet Switzerland, the company operates more than 200 aircrafts and employs over 11,000 members of staff from across Europe. According to reports in 2014, has ferried more than 65million passengers, behind only Ryanair in the number of travellers carried in Europe.

Although its headquarters is located in London’s Luton Airport, the company operates bases across Europe. EasyJet opened a new base in Gatwick Airport in 2002 and, from there, continued to open new facilities in Germany, Italy, Spain and France between 2003 and 2007. After the Brexit referendum introduced uncertainty in the travel and aircraft industry, EasyJet announced it would be opening a European headquarters in Austria, so it can operate smoothly after Britain’s departure from the EU.

Since its establishment in 1995 by Stelios Haji-Ioannou, EasyJet has moved from strength to strength. Kickstarting its success, the company adopted the highly successful Southwest Airlines model of cost-cutting, which eliminated additional benefits such as free snacks. Instead, the model championed additional charges on priority boarding, luggage and food. One of EasyJets first forays into expansion happened in 1998 when it purchased a 40% stake in the Swiss airline TEA Basle. The airline swiftly became EasyJet Switzerland by 1999 after relocating to Geneva International Airport.

Further expansions included the acquisition of GB Airways in October of 2007 for £103.5million and by 2013 EasyJet had launched its 100th route from Gatwick Airport.

As of July 2014, the mastermind behind EasyJet, Stelios Haji-Ioannou, is still connected to EasyJet through the easyGroup holdings. This branch of the company owns a 34.72% stake, the largest shareholder and in March of 2013, the airline joined the FTSE 100. Continuing to flourish despite uncertainty after the Brexit vote, EasyJet will be taking over some of Air Berlin’s old services. Up to 25 A320 former Air Berlin aircraft are being leased by EasyJet under its European AOC. This was a step forward for EasyJet, who previously only operated out of Berlin Schoenfeld Airport.

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.
