(Bloomberg) -- Social Finance Inc., a financial technology startup, will pay more than $30 million annually over 20 years to put its name on a new stadium that will be the home of the Los Angeles Rams and the Chargers, a person familiar with the deal said.The amount is a record for any naming rights for a sports venue, the person said, declining to be identified because the information is not public.The National Football League stadium in Inglewood, California, which is developed by billionaire Stan Kroenke, will open next summer, according to a joint statement from SoFi, the venue and teams, which declined to disclose the financial terms of the agreement.The $5 billion stadium will host the Super Bowl in 2022, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2028 Olympic Games. SoFi will also be an official partner of the Rams and Chargers, it said.“This is a giant leap toward achieving our company’s mission of helping people get their money right by reaching our members where they are,” SoFi’s Chief Executive Officer Anthony Noto, a former NFL executive,said in the statement.SoFi has a large marketing budget, which has surpassed $200 million annually for the last few years, as the firm launches new products and seeks to acquire new customers.Last year, SoFi counted more than 500,000 members and made a larger push into mortgage lending as well as its checking and savings product, SoFi Money. Having its name on the stadium of some of the most high-profile teams in the NFL could help boost recognition outside of the financial world.SoFi Stadium, which has more than 3 million square feet of space, can seat 70,000 -- and that could be expanded to 100,000, according to the statement.Last month, American Airlines became the first official partner of the new stadium with an agreement to pay $90 million over 10 years. The airline will sponsor the 2.5-acre space that serves as main entrance to the stadium, a person with knowledge of the matter said at the time.As part of the deal, Fort Worth, Texas-based American Airlines Group Inc. will become the official airline of the Rams and Chargers, and have prominent branding during games. American has been the Rams’ carrier since the team returned to Los Angeles from St. Louis in 2016.To contact the reporter on this story: Scott Soshnick in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nick Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org, Linus Chua, Ian FisherFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Massive growth at Sea-tac Airport has not come without challenges for the Transportation Security Administration and its passenger screening as more than 70,000 people go through Sea-Tac security lines in a single day.
Airline stocks have been all over the map this year, but Macquarie thinks that there’s more runway ahead for both one of the best performers in the group and one of the worst. Stock in (AAL) (AAL), another so-called legacy carrier, is firmly in the red. The shares have been hurt by lackluster earnings, debt worries, and the rescheduling headaches that have come from its reliance on the grounded Boeing planes.
An American Airlines mechanic charged with purposely damaging an aircraft in July during a dispute between the airline and its mechanics union involving stalled contract negotiations will remain behind bars until at least Sept. 20, according to a court filing on Thursday. The Federal Aviation Administration also disclosed Thursday that it had issued an emergency order earlier this week revoking Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani's mechanic certificate with immediate effect. Pilots of a flight from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas, on July 17 aborted takeoff plans after receiving an error message involving the flight computer, which reports speed, pitch and other data, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Miami.
Investors have given Boeing (NYSE:BA) stock a long leash. Boeing stock has traded mostly sideways since March, despite the fact that news over that stretch hasn't seemed particularly positive.Source: Alex JW Robinson / Shutterstock.com Of course, Boeing stock fell sharply after the second 737 MAX crash in March. Since then, the company hasn't given investors much to be excited about.Boeing Co took a $5 billion charge with Q2 earnings. Management targets for the return of the 737 MAX to service seem hugely optimistic, and the 777X faces potential delays as well. The defense side of the business has come under criticism for performance under a key Air Force contract.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAnd yet investors have shrugged off those worries. A brief dip in August reversed quickly. Wall Street remains reasonably supportive, with an average price target of $411 suggesting 12% upside.The willingness of investors and analysts to support Boeing Co stock does make some sense. As I wrote last month, Boeing Co probably gets back to earnings growth at some point. But it seemed then like investor patience with BA stock was starting to give way, and if Boeing keeps missing its targets, it may do so again. MAX Delays Hit Deliveries for Boeing CoAs noted, the grounding of the MAX fleet hit Q2 earnings -- and will continue to hit profits going forward. Boeing announced on Tuesday that it had delivered just 18 aircraft in August, less than 30% of what it did the year before. * 10 Battered Tech Stocks to Buy Now To be sure, that figure isn't necessarily surprising, though year-to-date deliveries are lagging analyst expectations. But deliveries aren't the only issue. As detailed on the Q2 conference call, Boeing is still producing 42 737s a month, even with the MAX fleet grounded. And CEO Dennis Muilenberg said on that call that if the MAX didn't return to service by the end of the year, production potentially could be suspended.Increasingly, that looks like it will be the case. Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) has canceled MAX flights into 2020. American Airlines Group (NYSE:AAL) has pulled the MAX from its schedule through December. E.U. regulators are insisting on their own test flight.Meanwhile, Boeing still hasn't updated its prediction from the Q2 call for a return to service early in the fourth quarter. That doesn't inspire confidence. If the MAX slips into 2020, it will cost the company billions in dollars in airline reimbursements, storage fees and incremental production costs. It may also cost Boeing Co the confidence of investors. The 777X, the KC-46 and BA StockWhat is frustrating about BA stock at the moment is that the 737 MAX isn't the only issue. The 777X is facing delays as well. Issues with engines produced by General Electric (NYSE:GE) admittedly are the key problem. But Boeing had a failure with a so-called "load test" this week, which could further push its release into 2020.On the defense side, the company's KC-46 aerial refueling tanker continues to struggle. Debris continues to be left on planes, leading to increased inspections and delayed deliveries. Acting Secretary of the Air Force Matthew Donovan said this summer that Boeing Co management had referred to the issues as "embarrassing". * 7 Upcoming IPOs for September The problems, which truly come down to execution, color Boeing's ability to get future U.S. military contracts. With intense competition from the likes of Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), the KC-46 only seems to add to the worries here. The Case for, and Against, Boeing StockBut, again, investors have largely shrugged off all of those concerns over the last six months. And there's one reason why: as an analyst put it earlier this year, Boeing is almost too big to fail.After all, worldwide demand for air travel is only going to rise going forward amid the rise of the middle class in developing nations. Backlogs at both Boeing and rival Airbus (OTCMKTS:EADSY) extend into the 2030s. And there simply is no competition, even though China is trying to break that duopoly.But even in the context of a roughly $200 billion market cap, a few billion dollars in penalties, fines and costs matter. So does pushing revenue -- and profits -- out a few quarters or a few years. Even if Boeing can avoid the worst-case scenario -- a permanent grounding of the MAX -- the costs are piling up. At some point, that's going to matter.As of this writing, Vince Martin did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

If the Boeing Co. were able to get its 737 MAX back into service for part of the upcoming holiday travel season, at least in the U.S., a Wichita airline researcher says consumers could cash in on some potential savings on ticket prices. Dean Headley, emeritus professor of marketing at Wichita State University and co-author of the annual Airline Quality Rating report, says the airline system as of now has largely factored the grounded MAX out of the equation. In the U.S., the plane would have to be cleared by the Federal Aviation Administration. But it was reported last week that European regulators planned to run their own review on the MAX, rather than work in lock-step with the FAA, as has been the historical norm.
