Looking at the right side column of Related Stocks, all the military industrial stocks are getting sold. What gives? Would have thought they would be going up with Ukraine on all the front pages??? Any thoughts?

@mk1992 Sliver of hope: Kremlin sees a diplomatic path on Ukraine


This is why and energy also down today.
china certificate and purchase should move the price higher by 5% - 10%

230 per share this year ?
@blue_angels When will news announce?
Really good news for BA's freighter prospects against the A350. COVID has certainly shifted the balance of air traffic in the direction of pure freight. At least some of this shift is likely permanent with changes in business practices.

Getting Qatar to also buy in on the 737 was good as well although these are "provisional orders" whatever that means?

@Iflyvolaris 737 MAX - 25 firm orders with option to take another 25.
Life is a marathon-------baby steps, to walking to jogging to running. And yes the arrogance and pettiness and stupidity took down Boeing for a few years-------hopefully these "Big Machers"--------know the score and wake up. Long BA !!
Glad for GE, but the last sentence gave me concern.

It mentioned an "increasingly bitter dispute" between Airbus and Boeing apparently as a result of this transaction. That could become more worrisome until some issues are addressed between these two giants.
@jeffreyzinkan dispute between Qatar and airbus not between boeing
@vavemula I read it differently. Don't think Qatar is a company. The link gives me the impression that Boeing and Airbus are at odds over the Qatar deal and that the "increasingly bitter dispute" is between those two companies - perhaps over other deals as well. Admittedly, I don't follow this issue that closely.

@jeffreyzinkan Just google Qatar Airbus cancelled orders. Boeing has nothing to do with the spat.

Boeing losing the Qantas and KLM order were big losses. If Boeing can get British Airways to commit to the B737MAX then it will be a great win for Boeing (along with the Allegiant Airlines order).
White House event?? Must be a big moment.
@Parkspec I'd say 20 billion is a pretty big moment. Especially when the grand poobah of Quatar is sitting eating lunch at the White House.
@meadowlandscris Boeing did this - Biden didn't.
@Parkspec Unless of course Donnie was in the WH - then it would have been all him, the great deal maker, right? Typical...
Great news for BA as they will continue to dominate the market for freighters well into the future.
Great news for US workers
