- Boeing (BA -1.5%) and Airbus (OTCPK:EADSY -3.3%) are sharply lower following engine supplier Rolls-Royce's (OTCPK:RYCEY -19.8%) warning of a weaker than expected 2015 earnings outlook and sharply weaker demand in 2016.
- Rolls-Royce, which makes engines for Boeing’s 787 Dreamliners and Airbus A380 superjumbos, says it expects sharply lower volumes of corporate jets powered by its engines next year, and that its aftermarket service segment had begun to suffer as customers use older, wide-body engines less and shift to more fuel-efficient planes.
- Rolls-Royce's gloomier outlook also comes as engines made by GE (GE -1.4%) and Pratt & Whitney (UTX +1.1%) for the Airbus A330 reportedly have driven down prices for its Trent 700 engines.

The company says it plans to slim down its portfolio, targeting increased sales of a narrower range of products. | Jun. 19, 2013, 3:33 PM
