TSX has several aviation companies listed on it. Along with the traditional passenger airlines, it also has aviation equipment and air cargo. Irrespective of the stocks you pick, conduct your research and consider even the smallest factors while assessing. Not every stock may be favourable to every investor. For some investors, the selection criteria may be on dividends; for others, it may be the revenue generated by the company.

As a long-term investor, reposition your portfolio from time to time depending upon the criticality of the market. The aviation sector faced a downturn during the pandemic time. Now, with increasing inflation and interest rates, the sector may again fluctuate up and down. Make sure to pick the stocks that prove to be favourable to you. Now, let us look at the two stocks mentioned with their recent financial performance.

Find the right opportunities to tap on to get your desired portfolio.
