  • opec has the power to lower oil prices to kill any threats then let market raise prices-- right now they are lowering to take out the thin fracking guys who have to drill drill drill drill to make oil you get the oil but it is expensive-- opec will not cut production to get to higher oil they first must get less fracking, coal, nuclear, solar, tar sands,etc etc---they will do this buy lowering oil prices-- probably take about a year. BP saw fracking as expensive and with oil low they have been capping well in gom.

  • someone knows soethig about earnings and/or subject of cc. Just something fishy when with no announcement this picks-up ---average public investor never stands a chance---game is rigged.

  • What did government and press cause I saw--stopped fishing and drilling. Tourism hurt by press. Ixtoc was probably worse but reports I read say environment not hurt-- heck everybody knows dead zone the size of Delaware is due to fertilizer run-off but this gets no press. BP said from the beginning they would pay all legitiment claims. Guys it just makes me sick to read articles about the enviromental disaster when there was not one-- hell these are the same crack in the earth methane guys or large undersea oil plume that is going to stop the gulf stream. I guess it sells papers and they cover themselves by saying it could happen in the future but these guys are getting as bad as the lawyers with non-exisyent claimants. I am beginning to laugh at their efforts if it was not so easy to sway some people--what is the crime for such untruths??

    alstrom looking for more train investment after selling turbines to GE, but bombardier only has $8 billion in debt with most of that due past 2020. where are you seeing $17 billion???

  • yield means nothing with stock dropping 2% per day-- I think the bad publicity from these upcoming movies and bardier's love of louisiana (get as much possible) from BP are coming at a bad time (oil glut).

  • sorry-- but this ebola thing is on my mind. If a terrorist can convince someone to blow themselves up or drive an airplane into to a building, whats to stop them from convincing someone to go kiss/hug someone in west africa and then fly to USA. Ten and twenty such people could do a lot of damage. Now is time to do it while homeland security is just taking temps (and making people take off their shoes). I does sound like something our government is not prepared for. Once it happens they will start quarantine.

  • this old press from boeing : its 2014 Current Market Outlook, Boeing sees a need for more than 25,000 single-aisle airplanes over the next 20 years, valued at $2.56 trillion. That's up from its prior 20-year outlook of 24,670.
    "For over a decade we have seen resilient demand for the 737 and a rate increase to 52 per month reflects the appetite for airplanes like the 737 MAX and Next-Generation 737," Randy Tinseth, VP of marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said in a release. "Our thorough analysis tells us the single-aisle market continues to expand and is the fastest growing, most dynamic segment of the market."

    Bad news is Boeing is increasing 737 rate from 42 to 52 per month-- good news is they think this will be most dynamic segment in market and cseries has potential to be best plane in this market.

    orders are necessary but they don't add to bottom line--unfortunately money from cseries will not start until 2016.

    Hey danvandam--- no I think the money boys are usually right and for what the company is right now the price maybe a little low but not what it could be. This is a family company that does not care about stock price. The Beuadoins are workaholics and have built a juggernault they care about building a company not so much about stockholders. The goal for them is not to make money but to make great products. The bookvalue of the stock is probably less than $2/share because of the debt but that does not matter last Sept. a marvelous piece of equipment flew at Mirabel-- that was the goal. Debt at $8 billion not a problem, revenues steady for 10 years not a problem-- BUT what is next. It is up to the family, do they settle down and make money or do they jump into something crazy-- outer space or electric cars/buses, etc. Hopefully they decide to turn company public and make profit for themselves, shareholders, employees.

  • The headoffice and large debt are two reasons this company's share price is so low,BUT both are not relevent at this time-- Pierre is a winner and only 750 million due in 2016 and NOTHING due in 2017. The problem is this is a family run business they do not answer to shareholders they are driven to be the best and they have goals--- I think the Cseries is the peak. The Cseries was a gamble that a for profit company would not have made. Like Alexander who cried because there was nothing left to conquer I think the single aisle is the end of the march for the family. I am sure that among the grandkids there is another Laurent but it may be time to give them some seed money and let them pursue other rainbows. I know this fanatical drive has to be taking a toll. I use to think they would split rail and planes and screw the shareholders like they did with BRP but if they talk to "Brain" or some other smart advisors they will probably advise to give up two tier voting (become a true public company) and stock price will go to level that will be more than Chinese would pay for planes. It is a solution that everyone could be happy with-- family would profit, shareholders (ME) and government and employees. Walmart did it and they still call the shots because they still hold the most shares. The peak is there with the Cseries -- get the bugs worked-out-- get the production rolling, pay down the debt, get credit to AA, and make the best planes and trains in the world and accept the laurels and do the right thing.

    $30million X 40 = $1.2 billion saved compared to A320 neo. Wow and they are going to get a better plane. Okay who is going to blink -- not bbd until cseries gets some respect.

  • the 2 year delay was bad but it is behind --- the $4 billion development costs have been spent-- bbd builds great value products--cseries will not be an exception--bottom is in imho.

  • airbus new engine and upgrades to complete with cseries is ready for first flight. production delivery may actually be before cseries, but this isn't a new cleansheet but an upgrade. airbus has over 3000 firm orders and this is funny because ceries is priced at least 30% less. bombardier sales team probably has to be going nuts---they have a better product at millions less per plane but are without orders-- because 95% of parts on neo match and airlines will go with what they know. they just need one big efficient airline to place a big order and this will change quickly -money talks --and if your competitor's plane is 30% less he will eat your lunch--so 3000x20 million is $60 billion less for airbus---guys this ain't going to happen to airbus and boeing. its going to be interesting to see how airbus and boeing handle this threat to the main source of profits (single aisle)--my guess is they concede-- if bbd does not get them then comac will-- and drop price. not so much a win for bbd as a loss doe airbus and ba.

  • so I got this letter is mail some company looking for 30+ acres on 3 phase near utility substation -- so I look them up and they are looking to place solar farms. They say with tax breaks and credits and government forcing power companies into renewables they can guarantee 12% return and give you a power company buyback in 5 years. Well these guys are busy they have built about 20 of these farms in the last few years. They admit that cost wise solar can not compete with nuclear and is intermittent but if government wants it and is willing to pay for it then why not (yes I do remember the biofuel frenzy)-- so here we go will politics or economics win?? oh yes the company was innovative solar systems llc out of asheville nc. They seem like reasonable folks--- I just can't believe nuclear is going to lose (so cheap and so clean)

    great idea but you must take the blue state retirees back they are taking over down here

  • Shortly after Boeing announced its production increase to 47 of its 737s a month, Airbus said it would raise production on the A320 to 46 a month. There’s a limit to how many single-aisle, narrow-body planes the market can absorb, according to the analysts at Canaccord Genuity:

    [W]e are concerned that the risk of over producing on the narrow-body market increases substantially as rates go up. As a general rule of thumb, many suppliers cite 100/month combined for both Boeing and Airbus as a natural limit, and are concerned that anything above this level is unsustainable for more than a short period of time.

    guess you could look at it from a positive point of view and say bbd did its market research and knew the need for single aisle cseries---or you could look at it from a negative point of view and say lots of luck competing against airbus and boeing ???
