Boeing will undertake work related to the aforementioned Air Force contract in St. Louis, Missouri.

Last week, Brian West – chief financial officer of the New York listed behemoth forecast negative cash flow for 2024. Still, Nicolas Owens of Morningstar sees $BA as undervalued. On CNBC’s “Fast Money”, he said:

There’s still a ton of demand for these planes long term. In three to five years, it’s plausible that they’ll be producing many more of these 737s and doing so profitably.

His $221 price objective suggests about a 28% upside from here. Note that the multinational is scheduled to file its 90-day report on quality improvements by May 30th.
