Can somebody tell me why I shouldn't throw every available penny into FRNT now? Yes, I know FRNT is losing money and Southwest just moved into Denver. But look at these stats for FRNT (courtesy of yahoo: http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ks?s=FRNT) --

Price/Sales: 0.10

Price/Book: 0.59

Compare with American Airlines (AMR):

Price/Sales: 0.14

Price/Book: 3.92

How can it be right that FRNT's price/book is < 1? And it's not just a little under 1, it's way, way under 1. Hasn't this thing gotten beaten down too far?
