  • Boeing To Bound Higher Over Time [View article]
    Boeing (BA +5.6%) posts its second straight strong advance, powering to new record highs in the afterglow of its surprising Q4 results and 2015 guidance.
    Canaccord is one of several firms raising its stock price targets; reiterating its Buy rating, the firm lifts its target to $160 on strong cash flow guidance which it believes overshadow concerns about risks such as crude pricing, foreign exchange, airline orders and the 777 order bridge.
    Deutsche Bank also cited the impressive cash flow in raising its price target to a Street-high $175 (Briefing.com).

    Think the Greeks have screwed up the country more than anyone else. Never should never have been allowed to join EU in the first place.

    Evidently $800B was not enough the first time around.

    I would be the first one to support more efficiency in the military budget and have no problems with the sequester cuts there. SSec on relatively solid ground. Medicaid/Medicare/Ssec disability will eventually bankrupt nation ala Detroit/Stockton/Greece until substantially reformed which I don't see any politician willing to take on............until the next crisis. On bright side, Europe went down the progressive path 15-20 years before we started, so their collapse might eventually be a wake up call.

    Japan is not a good example to cite to promote your view. Country is dead man walking with two lost decades of no growth and a debt to GDP level approaching 250% with one of the key drivers being the huge investments in this type of "White Elephant"

    GILD is core holding. Had since $40, plan to hold for at least another $60 upside over next 2-3 years if not sooner.

    How often do govt entitlement programs actually get cut? Probably last time was SSEC changes in 1983 that have reduced liabilities by over $5T over past three decades.

    Great example is the ACA which used proposed 23% across the board cuts to medicaid/medicare providers, AKA the "doc fix", to come in close to budget neutral. Those cuts haven't nor will they ever take place. Now CBO estimates ACA will cost $150B to $200B annually by 2020, not to mention the impact to full time jobs since then.
