Investors Rate This Airline Best

Denver International Airport plays hosts to dozens of airlines. None occupies nearly so many gates as United Continental (NYSE: UAL  ) , but among investors, it's United's Star Alliance partner, Deutsche Lufthansa (NASDAQOTH: DLAKY  ) , they love best. The company gets the maximum five-star rating from the 32 investors to rate the stock in Motley Fool CAPS.

Is the enthusiasm warranted? Certainly. Debt, which accounts for 45% of total capital, isn't the same concern for Lufthansa as it is for United Continental (87% of total capital) or most other U.S. carriers. What's more, the airline has recently made smart labor-relations moves and is finding ways to expand while cutting costs. Find out more in the following video.

Lufthansa may be flying above peers now, but all that could change should energy prices spike again. How can you hedge your portfolio? We have some ideas in a new special report, "3 Stocks for $100 Oil." Access if free right now. Just click here to claim your copy.
