At least some good news.

[P]In a related move, Donofrio upgraded Northwest Airlines ([A href=][FONT color=#3333ff]NWAC[/FONT][/A]: [A href=][FONT color=#3333ff]news[/FONT][/A]) to buy from hold, adding the Eagan, Minn.-based carrier''s shares to her winner''s circle -- those airline stocks that she believes investors should be focusing on. [/P]
[P]Also in the winner''s circle are Delta Air Lines ([A href=][FONT color=#3333ff]DAL[/FONT][/A]: [A href=][FONT color=#3333ff]news[/FONT][/A]) and Continental Airlines ([A href=][FONT color=#3333ff]CAL[/FONT][/A]: [A href=][FONT color=#3333ff]news[/FONT][/A]).[/P]
[P]Not only are all three airlines financially stable, but we think that strategically all three have shown great strides with respect to making sure that they are in a strong competitive position over the long term, Donofrio wrote.[/P]
