Here’s why Qantas Airways Limited’s $2.8 billion loss could be a buying opportunity
Despite those words of warning there are obviously many investors - 124,205 shareholders according to last year's annual report - who are presumably comfortable owning Qantas Airways Limited's (ASX: QAN) stock.

5 things you need to know about the Australian sharemarket today
Welcome to Friday. Here are the five things I'm looking at today on the Australian sharemarket. The S&P/ ASX 200 Index (Index: ^AXJO) (ASX: XJO) is roughly flat - maybe its exhaustion after the intense last four weeks of company reporting. Good thing it's the weekend, so we can all come back on Monday refreshed. National Australia Bank Ltd (ASX: NAB) has announced that it is selling off its US business Great Western Bank, in a deal that could be worth as much as $2 billion to the bank. NAB shares have jumped more than 1% in lunchtime trading as a result.Analysts have suggested the move means new CEO Andrew Thorburn has signalled his intent to deal with legacy offshore assets. Shareholders will be hoping NAB manages to find a buyer for its UK assets including Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks. Virgin Australia Holdings Ltd (ASX: VAH) boss John Borghetti has upstaged his larger counterpart Qantas Airways Limited (ASX: QAN) after announcing that the airline is selling off 35% of its Velocity frequent flyer program to Affinity Equity Partners. Qantas has spent several months looking at a similar option for its own program, before giving up and deciding to keep 100% of it in house. Virgin says the deal values its Velocity business at $960 million, and will increase its cash balance by $336 million. The airline's shares were up 1.2% at 41 cents. Tweet of the Day
