Sabre Soars: Why We Said Go Long $SABR (And Why More Upside Is Ahead) - SABR Hedgeye 

For the record, he sees 25% additional upside on 2018 factors alone. He adds that 2019 looks better, but needs more data to confirm.

Additional items of interest.

  • We were loud Sabre bears for 2 years and had it on the Short side whole way
  • We switched from Bear to Bull a few weeks ago and hosted a Black Book called “Short to Long” on Feb 2
  • We think there is more upside ahead, including elements that really just qualitatively are coming to light now (but provide material for quantitative upside exiting 2018 into 2019)
  • On a 2018 basis we previewed valuation in the $18-28 range, ie risk/reward. We got the risk part right away with the market volatility, and now we are heading toward the reward
  • On a 2019 basis we can see that valuation range moving higher.
