NEW YORK - Spirit Airlines (NYSE:SAVE) experienced a sharp 12.26% drop in its stock price Tuesday, closing at $13.67. This downturn halted the carrier's two-day streak of gains and marked a significant underperformance relative to its industry peers. In contrast, Alaska Air (NYSE:ALK) reported an increase, while Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) registered only a slight decline. Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) also faced a minor dip.

The selloff in Spirit's shares occurred against a mixed backdrop in the broader markets, where the NASDAQ Composite Index posted modest gains while the Dow Jones Industrial Average saw a slight decrease. The trading volume for Spirit Airlines was notably higher than average, signaling heightened investor activity around the stock.

Spirit's share price is trading well below its annual high of $21.25, reflecting investor concerns or potential market realignments that have yet to be fully understood.

InvestingPro Insights

In the wake of the recent selloff, Spirit Airlines (NYSE:SAVE) investors are navigating through turbulent financial metrics. According to InvestingPro data, the company's market capitalization has adjusted to $1.49 billion, while the Revenue Growth over the last twelve months as of Q3 2023 stands at a solid 16.45%. However, a closer look at the quarterly figures reveals a concerning dip, with Revenue Growth for Q3 2023 showing a decline of -6.3%.

Adding to the complexity, Spirit Airlines has been grappling with significant challenges as reflected in the InvestingPro Tips. The carrier operates with a substantial debt burden and may face difficulties in making interest payments on its debt, which is particularly alarming for investors considering the company's negative P/E Ratio of -2.80, as of the last twelve months. Analysts have also revised their earnings downwards for the upcoming period, indicating potential headwinds for the airline's financial performance.
