What are Wall Street analysts saying about Boeing stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Boeing stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Boeing's share price outperformed the industry's rally over the last year, with the company being the largest aircraft manufacturer in the world in terms of revenues, orders and deliveries. The company’s 20-year market outlook forecasts commercial jetliner demand to increase by 4.1%, with single-aisle jets being the major driver behind this demand growth. Boeing expects the commercial fleet to be fueled by sustained annual growth in commercial passenger traffic along with a big wave of retiring, old planes. Boeing’s strong balance sheet and cash flows provide financial flexibility in matters of incremental dividend, ongoing share repurchases and earnings accretive acquisitions. However, this aerospace giant may face competitive challenges if new manufacturers like China enters the commercial jet space. Engine-related issues pertaining to its 787 fleet may may also hurt company's growth." (10/26/2018)
  • 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "We’re encouraged with Teligent’s topical product approval flow and concrete steps the company is taking to address its balance sheet. However, we continue to wait for validation of Teligent’s new injectables facility, which we think is critical to building a sustainable generics business, and remain HOLD rated on TLGT shares. We will be looking for updates on the company’s earnings call next month, at which point we will review our estimates and valuation." (7/25/2018)
