  • Boeing: Price Target Of $390 According To The Gordon Growth Model [View article]
    Did I hear this somewhere before, Opinions are noses, we all have them.
    Invest in quality companies like Boeing that has a 5 year backlog and stay the course and you will be rewarded.
    It is doubtful the 390 mark will be seen ANY time soon, but that is just my opinion.
    If the cost for Boeing is too high, check out one of the Boeing suppliers like Honeywell and go long.

  • Boeing: 4 Different Insiders Have Sold Shares During The Last 30 Days [View article]
    As a long time employee, I have never seen any real financial effect on the activities of insider selling. It does not seem to have any long term effect on the stock performance.
    All of us, (including the executives) are getting close to or are already at retirement age, so it appears they (Executives) are just preparing to exit to yet another boardroom to collect another fat bonus.
    It it shocking to see the great wealth that is held by the executives of large corporations at a time when they expect continue to ask the employee that is actually building the product to be more conservative ad do more with less.

  • Boeing (BA) is looking to cut the number of time-consuming and expensive test flights its carries out on each 787 that rolls off the production line in an attempt to speed up delivery of the much delayed jet. Boeing has conducted up to eight flights but the company wants the process to be like that for the 737: "It rolls out [of the factory], take it for a spin, let the customer have a flight, then go." [View news story]
    The many customers have waited way to long for deliveries on this new technology. Now is not the time to be cutting corners on testing when the competitor (Airbus) only needs someone to make a huge mistake at their rival company.
    Stick with the known and reduce testing slowly.
    They have two different plants producing this new product so it seems this could be a expensive idea by some "Bean Counter" at the executive level.

  • With a wholesale ASP of ~$650, the iPhone is much more expensive than the average Android phone before subsidies kick in. That's proving to be a problem in markets where subsidies don't exist, or where consumers prefer to buy phones prepaid rather than agree to expensive contracts. In crisis-hit Greece and Portugal, for example, Apple's (AAPL) smartphone share remains below 10%, leaving Android (GOOG) to dominate the market. (also)  [View news story]
    You have to ask yourself how many people have an Apple product and then ask how many more people will have two more Apple products by the end of the year.
    I'm guessing holding the stock makes a lot of good sense right now.
