Boeing is one of the major players in the aerospace and defense industry. The company’s defense business stands out among its peers by virtue of its broadly diversified programs, strong order bookings and order backlog. At the end of the first quarter of 2015, Boeing Defense, Space & Security (BDS) had a backlog of $60 Billion, 37% of which comprised orders from international clients. This shows that Boeing is witnessing strong demand for its defense products internationally as well.

Wells Fargo analyst team says: We believe there are some investor concerns about the fate of the US Export-Import Bank (ExIm) and the potential effect the agency’s shutdown would have on new Boeing deliveries. In all, we do not expect any meaningful impact on deliveries given that: (1) Congress appears to be prepared to reauthorize ExIm in July; (2) there is abundant liquidity (bank debt + capital markets) for aircraft today; and (3) if necessary, Boeing can finance its own deliveries. As a result, we believe any ExIm-related pressure on the stock is unwarranted.
