Boeing announced plans to hire hundreds of temporary workers to help roll out the 737 Max aircraft once it is FAA approved, which is likely to happen before Thanksgiving. Yahoo Finance's Alexis Keenan joins YFi AM to discuss.
A crew of veteran U.S. astronauts and aviators are training in Houston for a manned mission to the International Space Station aboard Boeing's new Starliner spacecraft, which could also be used to take tourists into space on future missions. The Boeing Starliner mission was originally scheduled for this month, but that has been delayed to at least the end of the year or into 2020 due to technical issues and amid a shakeup in the top echelons of the space agency. Boeing and rival Elon Musk's SpaceX are competing with each other to become the first private company to resume human space flight from U.S. soil after the space shuttle program ended in 2011.
(Bloomberg) -- Indonesia is pushing its domestic airlines to halt purchase of Airbus SE planes in retaliation for curbs imposed by the European Union on use of palm biodiesel.Indonesia’s Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita is also asking carriers including PT Lion Mentari Airlines to consider switching their outstanding aircraft to Boeing Co. Lukita has spoken to Lion’s co-founder Rusdi Kirana about dumping Airbus and the country’s largest low-cost carrier supports the government move, the minister said in a text message on Thursday.“We are exploring all options,” Lukita said, when asked if the government would order all carriers to switch to Boeing from Airbus. “I have contacted Rusdi, and he said the airline will follow whatever the government decides.”Siva Govindasamy, a Singapore-based spokesman for Airbus, didn’t immediately respond to request for comments.The Indonesian threat to turn its back on Airbus is the fallout of European Union’s decision earlier this year to place stricter limits on palm oil’s use in biofuels on concerns over deforestation. Indonesia, the world’s largest producer of the tropical vegetable oil, last week also threatened to slap retaliatory tariffs on import of dairy products from EU after the bloc imposed anti-subsidy duties on its palm oil biodiesel.The escalation of trade feud may complicate Lion’s plan to turn to the European manufacturer following a dispute with Boeing after the crash of its 737 Max 8 jet last year, which killed 189 people. Flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia has also said that it may cancel its Boeing Max orders for other models.Lion Air Said to Plan Airbus Order Switch After Boeing 737 CrashLion Air placed an order for eight Airbus A330neo planes worth $2.4 billion at list prices last year, adding to a 2013 order for 234 planes worth $24 billion.(Recasts throughout.)To contact the reporters on this story: Eko Listiyorini in Jakarta at email@example.com;Harry Suhartono in Jakarta at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Young-Sam Cho at email@example.com, Thomas Kutty Abraham, Rieka RahadianaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

The U.S. Defense Department said on Wednesday it is canceling a Boeing Co contract for a "kill vehicle" due to technical design problems after spending $1.2 billion on the project. The decision to end the contract for the Redesigned Kill Vehicle (RKV) follows the Pentagon's move in May to issue a stop work order on the project after it "determined the technical design problems were so significant as to be either insurmountable or cost-prohibitive to correct," the Pentagon said. In December, the Missile Defense Agency and Boeing deferred a design review due to the failure of critical components to meet technical requirements.
The Pentagon is pulling the plug on a billion-dollar, technically troubled project to build a better weapon that would destroy incoming missiles. The move is aimed in part at considering new approaches to missile defense at a time of rapid technological change.
Stocks rallied Wednesday after President Donald Trump implied he's open to making a deal with China on trade, but gains were capped by the release of minutes from the Federal Reserve's July meeting.Source: rafapress / Shutterstock.com Those minutes revealed that some of the central bank's governors pressed for a cut of 50 basis points last month, but they were obviously out-voted as the Fed proceeded with a reduction of just 25 basis points. What put a lid on today's upside for equities were comments that the July rate cut was not necessarily a precursor for more reductions."In their discussion of the outlook for monetary policy beyond this meeting, participants generally favored an approach in which policy would be guided by incoming information and its implications for the economic outlook and that avoided any appearance of following a pre-set course," according to the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Marijuana Stocks to Ride High on the Farm Bill Currently, Fed funds futures are pricing in another 65 basis points of rate cuts this year, indicating there is room for markets to be left disappointed by the U.S. central bank.Still, the Nasdaq Composite notched an impressive gain of 0.90% today while the S&P 500 settled higher by 0.82%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average tacked on 0.93% amid broad-based strength in the blue-chip index. In late trading, 29 of the 30 Dow stocks were higher. Dow Winners GaloreWhile the Fed minutes may have lacked the punch investors were hoping for, there were some solid earnings reports (non-Dow stocks) out of the retail sector that gave market participants reason to be the oft-discussed recession is a long way from materializing. On that note, Nike (NYSE:NKE) was the Dow's best performer today with a gain of 2.83%.Sticking with consumer cyclical fare for a moment, McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) rose 2.25% after SunTrust analyst Jake Bartlett opined that the company's current Buy One, Get One (BOGO) for $1 promotion won't be a drag on profits. He's got a "buy" rating and $240 price target on McDonald's.The analyst's "research shows that McDonald's new offer is less promotional than its two for $5 mix-and-match deal that the company has cycled through in recent years--meaning McDonald's isn't meaningfully lowering the bar on prices in a way that would force rivals to discount as well," according to Barron's.I'm not saying it's all clear to wade into the energy sector, but it is encouraging to see more positive action out of oil giants Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) and Chevron (NYSE:CVX), both of which traded higher today on the back of some bullish analyst chatter.BMO analyst Daniel Boy said Exxon and Chevron, the two largest U.S. oil companies are the "lowest risk" names and best of breed in the energy patch. Specific to Chevron, that's the second time in a matter of days an analyst has been cheery on the company.Shares of Boeing (NYSE:BA), the Dow's largest component, added 2.49% today on news that the company is looking to fill hundreds of temporary jobs related to getting the 737 MAX passenger back in the air. Wall Street is hoping that will happen by the end of this year and if it does, Boeing shares likely move higher. DJIA Bottom LineIt's easy to get wrapped in the aforementioned Fed "disappointment," if it can really be called that. Additionally, it's easy (and warranted) to be skeptical of President Trump's comments on deals with China because recent history shows this situation is fluid.Maybe what investors should be honing in on is the likelihood of recession. Look at Target (NYSE:TGT) earnings. That stock surged over 20% today on volume that was nearly seven times the daily average because it guided higher. Companies like Target don't guide higher when recessions are right around the corner.Todd Shriber does not own any of the aforementioned securities.

Buoyed by positive gains for shares of Boeing and Nike, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is trading up Wednesday afternoon. The Dow (DJIA) was most recently trading 200 points, or 0.8%, higher, as shares of Boeing (BA) and Nike (NKE) have contributed about 25% of the index's intraday rally. Boeing's shares have climbed $7.98, or 2.4%, while those of Nike have climbed $1.80, or 2.2%, combining for a roughly 66-point boost for the Dow.
Investing.com – Stocks rose for the fourth day in the last five as investors were cheered by Boeing's hope to get its 737 Max jet back into the air and by gains in tech and retail stocks.
Shares of the Boeing Co. were rising on Wednesday after the manufacturer sent a signal that it is preparing for life after the grounding of its 737 MAX. The company has said previously that it intends to hand over its package of software and training updates to global regulators in September in hopes of the jet being cleared to fly again early in the fourth quarter. That’s an important timeline for production work in Wichita, as Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg has said that a delay too far beyond that target could result in decrease on the 737 MAX program or even a temporary halt to it altogether. The 737 MAX accounts for around half of the annual sales at Spirit, which is itself holding excess components on the aircraft, including the full fuselage, in inventory and delivering them to Boeing as requested. Boeing has lowered its output on the 737 MAX to 42 aircraft per month, while Spirit has stayed at the pre-grounding rate of 52 per month as part of a staggered production agreement between the companies. Spirit is Wichita's largest employer with 13,000 local workers.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday issued new guidance that aims to clarify how investors and advisory firms that cast ballots on their behalf should vote in corporate elections on issues like pay and diversity. The guidance, which expands previous 2014 guidance on shareholder voting in corporate ballots, addresses some of the grievances U.S. corporations have long had about so-called proxy advisers, such as mistakes in reports the advisers issue on specific companies and conflicts of interest in their business models. The SEC voted 3-2 to publish the new guidance, with Democratic commissioners dissenting because it could add risks to shareholders' rights and costs for the proxy advisors.
The 262-point, or 1.0% surge in the Dow Jones Industrial Average is unanimous in morning trading Wednesday, as all 30 components were trading higher. Providing the biggest boosts to the blue-chip barometer, the stocks of Boeing Co. rose $8.88, or 2.7%; Apple Inc. hiked up $3.13, or 1.5% and Microsoft Corp. climbed $1.72, or 1.3%. Combined, those stocks added about 93 points to the Dow's price.

Boeing plans to hire hundreds of temporary staff to help get the grounded 737 MAX planes ready for delivery. The company is waiting for regulatory safety approval.
Although discount airliner Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) is up nearly 11% year-to-date, this is a name that peaked too soon. At the beginning of February, the LUV stock price had gained 24% from January's opening volley. However, shares spent much of the year mired in a bearish trend channel since then.Source: Shutterstock InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsOf course, investors aren't terribly surprised at the underperformance of Southwest Airlines stock. For starters, the U.S.-China trade war has weighed heavily on the markets. And though the ratcheting up of trade tensions don't directly affect the airline, they do cloud consumer sentiment. Unfortunately, that does take a bite out of the broader transportation industry.Secondly, Southwest Airlines delivered a mixed earnings report for the second quarter of 2019. While the company delivered a beat on per-share profitability, it came up short on revenue. Against a consensus estimate of $5.93 billion, the airline rang up just under $5.91 billion. Wall Street didn't care for the sales miss and the LUV stock price fell sharply after the disclosure.Adding to the woes was the grounding of the Boeing (NYSE:BA) 737 Max 8 jetliner. After two fatal accidents involving the popular plane, a harsh spotlight glared on the once-respected company. At fault was a stabilization system that required grounding all Max 8 jets for inspection and repair.Boeing's woes are particularly troublesome for Southwest Airlines stock because the underlying company is the world's biggest operator of the Max 8, with 34 in its fleet of about 750 planes. American Airlines Group (NASDAQ:AAL) and Air Canada (OTCMKTS:ACDVF) are tied for second place at 24 planes. * 10 Stocks Under $5 to Buy for Fall With such dependency on a disgraced jetliner, does LUV stock offer a realistic chance to break out of its rut? LUV Stock is a Diamond in the RoughI understand investors' hesitation with Southwest Airlines stock. Not only is it heavily levered to the 737 Max 8, other airliners have outpaced it. For example, Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) dealt with the same economic and geopolitical headwinds, yet its shares are up 20% YTD.In addition, trade tensions and other macro-headwinds have brought about fears of a wider correction or even a major tumble. Certainly, the present environment doesn't inspire a risk on attitude.That said, I believe LUV stock offers a rational bull argument for the risk-tolerant speculator. Amid the mixed Q2 earnings report, management delivered a less ambiguous piece of good news: a resumption of their Hawaiian route expansion strategy.In March, the company debuted a flight from the continental U.S. to Hawaii. A little more than two months later, LUV was flying six round trips between the two regions daily. It also featured 16 daily flights within Hawaii.However, the 737 Max 8 grounding hit Southwest Airlines stock just as the underlying company was gaining serious traction. To counter this unforeseen turbulence, management made the decision to cancel all flights to Newark Airport, freeing up equipment to accommodate the Hawaii routes.It stinks to say this but it's the right decision for the company, the consumers, and LUV stock. After all, who in their right mind would go to Newark over anywhere in Hawaii?Secondly, it's not just domestic demand that will benefit the LUV stock price. It may have become an almost farcical stereotype, but Japanese tourists really love Hawaii. Not only that, many of these tourists are paying ridiculous premiums to travel there.With LUV offering cheap routes to the mainland U.S., I see synergies that can eventually lift Southwest Airlines stock. Another Big Route in the WorksWhile Q2 may have been a disappointment for some observers, LUV stock may benefit from a recoil effect. That is, investors were initially taken aback by the Max 8 grounding. However, when the Max eventually resumes normal operations, its associated revenue channels will also come back online. * 10 Undervalued Stocks With Breakout Potential When it does, this may have a disproportionately positive impact on Southwest Airlines stock. Remember, this is the company that has the most of the currently embattled jetliner.And the route that I'm especially paying attention to is the San Diego-Hawaii route. Why San Diego? Aside from it being the best city in the known universe, it hosts the U.S. offices of several major multinational companies, including Japanese firms, such as Sony (NYSE:SNE).What you have in Southwest Airlines stock is a possible goldmine. Southern California is already a gateway for Japanese tourists, and many of them will undoubtedly make the trip south down the coast. Moreover, you have thousands of constantly rotating Japanese professionals on work visas living in San Diego.Southwest can easily convert this consumer base to full flights to Hawaii. Because let's face it: this is a route that sells itself, which is why buying LUV stock isn't as crazy as it first sounds.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto is long SNE.
