Why You Should Take Boeing With a Grain of Salt
HUZZAH. The Dreamliner is finally ready to be shipped out and sold, marking the pivotal point in which years of financial dumbweight, liability, and overextension are turned into something potentially gamechanging. However, just because the Dreamliner has the potential to carry Boeing to new heights doesn't mean it will. Short-term, the Dreamliner will not significantly improve Boeing's bottom line; in fact, the culmination of the profitability of the Dreamliner will take years, and chances are short-term investors who have bought into the hype of the Dreamliner will soon realize the mediocracy of Boeing.
