Boeing-Running On All Cylenders/Stock @ All Time!

Fri Mar 17, 2006 11:11 pm

It appears that, unlike many other large US manufacturers , Boeing is ahead of the curve . Boeing's restructuring is now paying off which may enable them to enjoy a bright , profitable future !

Moody's lifts Boeing debt ratings

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Citing Boeing Co.'s improving cash flow and lower debt, Moody's Investors Service upgraded its credit ratings on the world's largest aerospace company Wednesday.

"With strong cash flow, approximately $8 billion in cash and marketable securities (including its intermediate term investment portfolio) and $3 billion in undrawn lines of credit, the company is well positioned to internally fund capital spending, dividend payments, and diminished pension obligations as well as maturing debt without access to external sources of capital," Moody's wrote.

$INDU11,253.24, +43.47, +0.4%) , set an all-time high on Wednesday of $76.30. The stock closed up 0.8% to $76.05.

Not bad at all. I guess they are doing something right. Actually it hit $77.05 on Thursday and it's currently trading at $76.73.

Yesterday (16 March 2006) Boeing $77.05, Lockheed Martin $75.85 closed at multi year highs and General Dynamics $129.85 closed at its highest prices ever. Other defence stocks are above or near their 52 week highs. The Pentagon has suggested spending next year will increase and that is driving the run up of defence stocks.

This is awesome. I invested in Boeing at the beginning of June, 2005. It's up more than 20% for me.

As it happens, EADS shares have spiked too - E33.89 at the moment. They're defence contractors as well.

I'd better mention that a mate of mine rang me this afternoon with a hot tip. He used to plan military operations professionally, he's retired now but still takes an interest as an amateur. He's heard through contacts that the Pentagon is dusting off plans for Iran; not a ground invasion, just bombing.

I'd have thought that Abe Lincoln's famous crack when he was advised to face off with Britain over them building the 'Alabama' for the Confederacy - "One war at a time..." - would be good advice for Bush. But you never know with that bloke.

Agree 100% and it is very nice to see how Boeing turning around considering
the situation the airline industry is still in.

Well, not if you are on the receiving end! But, true, the
US was master in keeping the wars "overthere" in the
last century.

He already broke this law, anyway. Neither the war in Afganistan nor the one in Iraq is finished. But with one
"brilliant" move by attacking Iran you can make just one
big war out of the three!
