The 2% fall in Boeing's (BA) share price yesterday following a fire on a 787 jet was overdone, says Jefferies analyst Howard Rubel, who notes that there has not been another similar incident. Wells Fargo sees the weakness as a buying opportunity, saying that any costs associated with the fire are unlikely to be material to near-term results. BB&T, however, downgrades the stock. Shares -1.4% premarket.
