The reality about the investment world is that thinking about realities for the next six to eighteen months matter a lot more than many people (even brokers and investment analysts) think. And that brings us to easyJet (EZJ) this morning publishing its nine months numbers. I know it makes sense for most companies to use the end of December as their full year point. Meanwhile some old-school corporations use the end of the UK tax year at the end of March/start of April. However many travel companies use the end of September, especially if they have a big summer holiday focus, often maxing out their revenue flow in the months leading up to that time. Nevertheless, you would expect some interesting comments – and guidance – at the nine month numbers published in July. And this brings us to easyJet today.
