    Why Boeing Was the Worst Dow 30 Index Performer on December 6

    Boeing (BA) stock fell ~3.1% on December 6, making it the day’s worst-performing stock among the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s 30 stocks. The stock opened 3.7% down and fell as much as 7.4% during yesterday’s trading session due to two main reasons: the broader market sell-off on possible trade tension escalation between the US and China and news of Lion Air considering canceling orders for Boeing’s 737 Max jets. The initial blow to Boeing’s stock came due to the broader market sell-off triggered by the arrest of Huawei Technologies’ CFO, which raised fears of a potentially worsening trade relationship between the US and China.
