Despite the turbulence in Boeing's (BA -0.4%) shares lately, Barron's Jack Hough says the stock could rise by 50% from current levels over the next few years. Malfunctions are common with newer planes and tend not to have a long-term impact on share prices, Hough notes. The Dreamliner will be successful over the long run, with production fully booked already through 2015. That translates into nearly a doubling of free cash flow over the same period, from $11B to over $19B.

    You say 787 poduction is fully booked through 2015. First I thought, "Wait, they're not going to deliver 800 787s in 3 years since the goal is to be producing only 10 787s per month by the end of 2013". But, I assume you mean there are no open slots for orders with a delivery date beforel 2016, right?

    Wow Boeing has been building and assembling aircrafts since 1916
    Leaking fuel lines and battery fire are just a normal day for the 787
    So was John Candy Dodge in Planes, Trains & Automobiles
    May be Boeing could offer Firestone 500 Tires for the 787 too

     

    It took 40 minute to put out the battery fire that with fire trucks and fire fighters
    The 787 has under design wing box with a band-aid fix, the aircraft is overweight from 9.8 tons to 4 tons overweight
    Engine half SHAFT problems
    Workmen ship problems with fasteners, wiring, missing o-ring on the fuel lines and missing lock wire on fuel lines
    55 of the first 70 had to be rework,
    The first 40 787 lost configuration and had to be park
    The first 40 787 cost 32 BILLIONS
    Boeing took 844 orders for the 787 and will need to sell 1100 to break even
    Boeing said its would assemble one 787 every three days, Boeing should have deliver 300 to 400 787 to date
    Boeing has delivery 50 787 in the late 4 years
    Some airlines have cancel or delay their orders for 787
    Boeing is writing late fee and perform shortfall checks to the airline
    ------------------------
    Boeing sold 111 747-8 and delivery 36 and 4 cancellations
    The 747-8 is two years late and 2.04 Billion over budgets
    The 747-8 wing is overweight alone with the aircraft causing the aircraft to miss its perform guarantee
    ----------------------...
    The FAA has know about the problems with lithium ion battery for a few years see

     

    DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, Federal Aviation Administration, 14 CFR Part 25
    [Docket No. NM375 Special Conditions No. 25-07-10-SC]

    Boeing should just reinstalled the older type battery in there aircrafts
    In the old day aircraft had a four man crews, pilot copilot, flight engineer and navigation
    Boeing should add a Dentist to the flight crew or a Boeing spokesperson, leaking fuel lines and fire in the batties,are just minors teething problems nothing to worries about for a ETOPS 330min extended operations aircraft but has the FAA ever ETOPS the passengers for 330 min
    The airship Hindenburg disaster was cause by static electricity and the Titanic's was only a few pieces of ice too

     

    There will be teething problems, yes, minor teething problems." Now its growing pains
    But the Boeing Dental Plan will cover these teething problems will 787 is going to be toothless soon
    but the 787 will gums its thought it teething problems, but the life vests are located under the seat just in case
    Installing engines, fuel lines, Wiggins fuel line connectors , installing o-ring, tightening fuels connectors and lock wire is aircraft 101 that been around since the 707 dating back to 1958 or the Wright brother of 1903
    "Lefty-loosey, Righty-tighty"
    The lazy-B call this Phenomenon is known as a learning curve, Manufacturer learns how to do things better and faster as they move further along in production.
    May be for Boeing in Seattle,
    But Boeing has been building and assembling aircrafts since 1916
    But in California it call the Lemon laws
    The FAA call it’s a Fine
    The real world known this as The Lazy-B will not assemble any aircrafts before its Whine
    The Airlines call its cancellation of their orders or time to stop believing in Boeing BS and buy from Airbus
    That why new aircraft program have a 18 to 24 months flight test programs

    but passengers may still want to carry a Parachute, and life vest is under the seat
    Disneyland or Six Flag or Universal studios may wanted to buy some 787’s as “E” ticket ride
    The Airport movies of the 1970’s that using a 747 now can be remade using a 787
    Not to worries Boeing will hire another sell guy to fix the problems
    Boeing's new jet boss Ray Conner a born salesman
    Who got 60,000 of Boeing stock

    Jim Albaugh got 57 millions to leave Boeing
    All this money, bonus and stock Boeing could hire a Quality Teams to inspected the aircrafts before its leave the factory and before its made the News
