+ Watch BA
on My Watchlist
With a focus on giant things that fly, Boeing is a leading maker of large commercial jets and a top defense contractor.
Interested in how folks think the reduction in defense spending will affect Boeing
Wide moat and sales back log.
They continue to lead in quality and innovation vs. Airbus. More importantly, The airline industry is healthy enough to actually afford purchasing planes at a time when the fuel savings on newer planes are enormous. The stars are aligned for Boeing.
One word: backlog. Boeing wisely focused on making their jets more fuel efficient. Lowering the costs for its customers is a reason why Boeing g has turned things around.
growth brand with great numbers
These type of articles are "chicken little" media whores mouthing off just to stir up the investors.Boeing is STILL and WILL be so overbooked with orders that losing a couple of airlines even if amounts to $$ billions, it doesn't matter. IF you are running a business and you have orders to keep you 100% busy for 10 to 15 years you have nothing to worry about with your financials. Don't fall for the 'sky is falling' mentality these bozo writers are spewing. THEY are only trying to stir the pot so they can glean readers.

This is a great core stock,
Record backlog of orders. 787 Dreamliner is a game changer !!
I'm sure glad I had this stock in my portfolio for the last 20+ yrs.
Outperform because of the winning design of the 787 and while forces of the market will try and drag it down, there's a surge of orders that has to take place, and the world needs their airplanes, as more and more people fly for the first time!
long term growth, wide moat.
Boeing makes better planes than Airbus, the military contracts will continue to add stability.
the Dreamliner will outperform the Airbus 380
With a high barrier to entry, it is unlikely that Boeing will face much competition from up and coming companies; its main competitor is Airbus industries, the European consortium. Boeing has been steadily been growing its backlog of aircraft, mainly the new 737 series which will launch in 2017 and demand in the 787. Boeing is ahead of Airbus in terms of developing aircraft such as the 787 which use composite materials as their primary construction material. Airbus's A-350 is just now entering testing and will not enter service for a few more years, giving Boeing the opportunity to iron out any wrinkles in the 787 that may come up. They have already addressed the issue with the Lithium Ion batteries and handled the situation in such a manner that they were able to gain control of the situation quickly. As long as Boeing continues to execute as it has in the past few years, it should have no problem growing sales and increasing its backlog.
Due to growing demand for Jets & the Dreamliner
Products are in high demand, especially the 787 dreamliner. The 787 is 20% more fuel efficient than the 747. Boeing cannot build them fast enough. They also have a good defense business.
I think there is potential for tons of growth once the Dreamliner is fully functional. Also with the back order of many planes, once filled there will be a large profit growth.
Until they solve the battery problem and they can begin shipping airliners, their bottom line will have to suffer over the short term. Hopefully, the
