Southwest (LUV, $35.26) gets rating boost, price target hike from Goldman Sachs analyst

On Monday, Goldman analyst Catherine O'Brien raised her rating on the air carrier to buy from sell. O'Brien also boosted her share price target to $47 from $35. According to the  analyst,  Southwest shares have been historically  less volatile compared to  the industry.

"We now expect traffic for the carriers in our coverage universe to recover to 2019 levels in 2023 as opposed to 2022," she said. "However, while we are taking the view that demand recovery will be slower than we were previously expecting, we continue to believe that demand for air travel will return to pre-Covid-19 levels and ultimately continue to grow from there."
