Spent 40 years at A and this is more than teething problems. As far as the pps is concerned there are more issues to factor in than this monster. The engineers contract and the debt ceiling are all going to weigh on the pps this quarter. Usually I play earnings and do well, but this is the first time I am out 100% and will remain out for the next several months. I do this rarely, but the performance under McNernney has been dismal. Go back to see that we were in the mid 50's the last time the debt ceiling was a problem and Moody's downgraded the US. Another action by Moody's and I could see it happen again and couple that to the labor issue alone make me gun shy here. The fix may be very costly for the company and I don't have the confidence in Chicago to manage it any better than they have managed the pps and the execution so far. They are buying back shares as quickly as they can so I don't think the got a pass as you think., last week. Just how many shares they will continue to buy to support the pps is anyone's guess, but I will wait until spring and have a much better understanding of these issues. Hoping it's over soon and the company sustains minimal damage for all, but Chicago's execution is still an issue, and by that I mean "dog of the DOW". Investor confidence ini management has been shaken.
