    UPDATE 2-Boeing hiring as it targets 737 MAX fights resuming ‘early 4th quarter’

    Boeing Co said on Tuesday it plans to add extra staff and hire "a few hundred" temporary employees at an airport in Washington state where it is storing many grounded 737 MAX jetliners, a key step in its best-case plan for resuming deliveries to airline customers in October. The world's largest planemaker, burning cash as one of the worst crises in its history stretches into a sixth month, said the workers will assist with aircraft maintenance and customer delivery preparations at Grant County International Airport. The hiring plans are the first publicly detailed steps Boeing will take as it works to deliver hundreds of grounded 737 MAX jets to airlines globally, an undertaking that would amount to one of the biggest logistical operations in modern civil aviation.

    This Big Bet on International Growth Could Hurt American Airlines Stock

    The past year and a half haven't been easy for American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL). American Airlines stock is down a painful 55% from its January-2018 peak.Source: Shutterstock Every time it looked like it might snap out of that funk, it's managed to find an even lower low. The weakness will ultimately serve as a buying opportunity, even if this month's new 52-week lows don't end up being the ultimate bottom.At a trailing P/E of 7.8 and a forward-looking P/E of 4.6, AAL stock is priced as if an apocalypse is inevitable. That is to say, the worst-case scenario is already priced in, and then some.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAs to when American Airlines stock will rebound though, and how well it recovers, most of that will hinge on the carrier's international business. Much of it's being rearranged, largely for the purpose of expansion. Expansion Plans and American Airlines StockAt first glance, news that American Airlines was adding another flight to and from Phoenix to Hermosillo, Mexico, could be shrugged off. Airlines add, and drop, regular flights all the time, as dictated by changing demand. * 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Load Up On This addition is tacked on to a string of new nonstop flights to and from Mexico has already added this year, however. American also added two new flights from Dallas to Tokyo two weeks ago. Around the same time, it announced a new route from Dallas and Tel Aviv, Israel, restoring service that was discontinued in early 2016.London, Athens, Madrid and Munich were also destinations of new flights from American this summer, even if only on a temporary basis.Africa is also an increasingly important destination from the United States. Vasu Raja, vice president of Network & Schedule Planning at American Airlines, explains:"We see the ability to develop Africa over multiple years - three, five, seven years. Today, we go fly to Casablanca, but through our partnership through Royal Air Maroc we can connect customers to a number of destinations in Africa. As those connections continue to grow, we'll be able to create value for more customers, and as we see where it is the customers grow, we can go to those places nonstop from a U.S. hub."The same may apply all over the world now, however."I think in three years what you will see is a much more globally diversified American Airlines that is operating in the markets that three or four years ago that it wouldn't have dared to dream about," Raja added. Longevity in QuestionThe underpinnings of the expansion are debatable, as is the longevity of the demand.Chief among concerns is a trade war, largely being fought with tariffs, between China and the United States that could create a ripple effect across the globe. Some fear it already has.The current administration hasn't been particularly dovish with Mexico in terms of trade either, calling into question the need for American Airlines' new routes to several destinations in Latin America.Concerned owners of American Airlines stock will also point out that the new routes added to Iceland in the middle of last year, in response to a travel boom at the time, are all going to be discontinued by October."The likely problem is that the airlines jumped in too quickly as soon as they saw a boom in Iceland's visitor numbers without anticipating the slowdown that will likely occur," Laura Beaton, Travel & Tourism analyst with London-based GlobalData said of the recently-added routes.It's entirely possible all carriers could be making a similar mistake with the addition of several new international routes. Changing Air Travel and American Airlines StockOn the other hand, it's also possible the air travel industry is at a critical turning point, where incomes are high enough everywhere and air travel is affordable enough everywhere that new international demand is here to stay.One underlying evolution driving that paradigm shift may be the jets themselves.It's difficult to call the early days of the 737-MAX series of passenger jets from Boeing (NYSE:BA) anything but a disaster. Two fatal crashes of the plane just a few months after they first took to the air have proven incredibly disruptive to previously-planned routes that have since been canceled or serviced by other planes with a different number of seats.Still, beyond the computerized safety system that appears to be the culprit of both crashes, the 737-MAX had proven to be 20% more fuel-efficient than comparable planes, thanks to the structural design of the aircraft.That upside still stands. Other aircraft designs will certainly borrow from the best aspects of the 737 MAX.Another key development? More, and better, infrastructure. More international hubs are being established, and more airports are being built.Meanwhile, existing airports are being improved in a way that allows them to accommodate more planes and passengers. This is particularly true of so-called "emerging and developing economies," where American Airlines is slowly but surely pushing its way in. Looking Ahead for American Airlines StockIn its long-term air travel outlook recently updated by International Air Transport Association (IATA), the organization predicts that the number of annual air travelers will more than double over the course of the next twenty years.By 2040, more than 20 billion total air trips are expected to be made. China and India will be featured prominently in that growth, as will Latin America. American Airlines is simply looking to stay ahead of that trend. Rival airlines like Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) and United Airlines Holdings (NASDAQ:UAL) are seeking to do the same.But, somehow for the perpetually-less-profitable American Airlines, the effort to expand internationally is an opportunity to grow its margins to levels more like those of its peers.Still, it's an awfully big risk, if the industry's growth trend isn't as reliable as it seems on the surface.As of the time of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    All 30 Dow Stocks Ranked: The Analysts Weigh In

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average - that elite group of 30 industry-leading dividend payers - is having a very good year. True, the blue-chip average has lost about 1,350 points since hitting an all-time closing high on July 15, but all told, the collection of Dow stocks still is up a healthy 12% for the year-to-date.That's just on a price basis alone. Factor in dividends (the industrial average yields a decent-though-not-spectacular 2.1%), and the Dow has delivered a total return of 13% so far this year.But not all Dow stocks are created equal. Although all these names have solid pedigrees, their short-to-intermediate term prospects diverge widely - at least as far as Wall Street analysts are concerned.For investors who want to pick and choose among the bluest of blue chips, we sorted the Dow 30 by analysts' average recommendation. S&P; Global Market Intelligence surveys analysts' stock calls and scores them on a five-point scale, where 1.0 equals a Strong Buy and 5.0 is a Strong Sell. Any score lower than 3.0 (Hold) means that analysts, on average, rate the stock as being buy-worthy. The closer a score gets to 1.0, the better.Here's a look at how analysts rate all 30 Dow stocks right now - and why. SEE ALSO: 57 Dividend Stocks You Can Count On in 2019

    Stock Market Today: Is GE a Fraud or a Screaming Buy?

    What's more wild, the story unfolding with General Electric (NYSE:GE) or the volatility in the stock market?Headline after headline has been wreaking havoc on the broader markets, as volatility remains elevated and as investors try to figure out their next step. Trade war worries, imploding foreign stock markets and recession concerns are engulfing the news flow.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsCasual investors will at least like the news from the stock market today, where the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) rose 1.25%, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:SPY) climbed 1.48% and the PowerShares QQQ ETF (NASDAQ:QQQ) jumped 1.61%.Amid that calamity, the story unfolding with General Electric is even more interesting. Is GE Stock a Sham or a Buy?General Electric has been under pressure since it reported earnings. For months, readers here have been cognizant of $10.50 range resistance and $9 range support. The breakout never materialized and GE stock quickly sank down to support. * 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Load Up On It was an unimpressive showing, but not surprising given the volatility in the broader market and the suspect nature of GE's balance sheet. The most recent quarter showed that General Electric is inching its way out of trouble, but could still have some unknown risks, particularly with Boeing's (NYSE:BA) 737 issues.On Thursday, range support between $9 and $9.25 blew out, as reports began circulating that a whistleblower was sounding the alarm on GE's accounting practices. That whistleblower was Harry Markopolos, who also raised concern over Bernie Madoff before his ponzi scheme was uncovered.GE pushed back, saying it stands behind its financials and that it remains in a strong position of liquidity. GE even went as far as to say that Markopolos is being "compensated by unnamed hedge funds [that] are financially motivated to attempt to generate short selling in a company's stock."Wow, dramatic.It doesn't end there, though. GE CEO Larry Culp refuted the claims even more aggressively, calling it "plain and simple" market manipulation. He then went out and bought 2 million shares of GE stock!Analysts came out to GE's defense on Friday morning, as did the well-known short-seller of Citron Research, Andrew Left. The latter also corroborates GE's stance regarding hedge fund compensation, noting that, "As noted in the disclaimer on his site, Harry is being paid a % of profits from an unnamed hedge fund that is short GE. No credible hedge fund or short seller would ever do this."GE jumped almost 9% in response to Friday's news, (Here's the trade layout). Movers in the Stock Market TodayGE was an obvious mover on the day, but it wasn't the only one.Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) rallied 7.5% on the day, showing some upside momentum after the company beat on earnings and revenue estimates. While the headline numbers look good and many believe in its long-term future, there are still some short-term concerns. Revenue sank 17.3% year-over-year and management expects third-quarter sales of $2.84 billion to $2.96 billion. Expectations were at $2.98 billion.Still, NVDA is on the move higher, which may be good news for bulls should the overall market start to rally too.Deere (NYSE:DE) stock was also on the move higher, climbing over 4% despite missing on bottom-line expectations. Earnings of $2.71 per share missed analysts' expectations by 13 cents. However, revenue of $10.04 billion handedly beat estimates by $660 million despite sinking 2.6% year-over-year.Shares of Palo Alto Networks (NYSE:PANW) were trading well on the day, up several percent before collapsing in the afternoon. PANW ended lower by 7.2% on news that Dave Peranich, EVP of worldwide sales, is leaving his post after three years on the job. Seems like it could be an overreaction, even if he was a top sales exec.Disney's (NYSE:DIS) latest billion-dollar hit is Toy Story 4, the company's fifth billion-dollar film this year. It now holds the record for most such films in a single year, while there is only one other competing film this year to top the nine-figure mark (Spider-Man: Far From Home). Further, the company announced last month that it had broken its prior annual box office record total of $7.61 billion, pulling in $7.67 billion in sales already in 2019.Don't forget, there's Frozen 2 and a Star Wars film still slated for 2019. It's going to be a huge year for Disney.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell. As of this writing, Bret Kenwell is long NVDA and DIS.

    Boeing Stock Has a Chance to Navigate the Turbulence

    As a component of the recently beleaguered Dow Jones Industrial Average, investors are understandably hesitant about Boeing (NYSE:BA). During the midweek massacre, the Boeing stock price shed nearly 4%. That's a sizable chunk for a historically reliable blue-chip company.Source: Shutterstock Of course, BA stock lost its previously stellar reputation. After two high-profile fatal accidents involving the Boeing 737 Max 8 jetliner, the airplane manufacturer had to come clean. They admitted defects within their anti-stalling system known as Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS).Eventually, the investigations into the MCAS software revealed horrendous oversight issues with the Federal Aviation Administration. As a result, government bodies throughout the world grounded the Max 8 until Boeing delivered a permanent resolution. Naturally, the Boeing stock price has encountered upside resistance throughout this year.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsYet BA stock may also benefit in the longer run from the "forgotten money" dynamic. Imagine putting loose change in a jar. Over time, those savings can amount to serious dollars. And in a higher-level sense, that's what we have with BA. * 10 Stocks Under $5 to Buy for Fall Recently, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the U.S. economy will get a kickstart once governments lift the Max ban. By Ross' estimation, the grounding eliminated about 0.4% from the second-quarter GDP.And before you say this is political pandering, the Commerce Secretary does have a point. We're in the sixth month of the ban. Moreover, several airliners have eliminated flights involving the Max 8, stymieing travel during high-demand seasons. A return to flight will certainly drive up the Boeing stock price.Additionally, the plane manufacturer enjoys organic headwinds that could end up at least sustaining BA stock during this difficult time. Perpetually Relevant Boeing Stock a Safer Bet Than OthersAllow me to bring one clarifying caveat to the table: I'm not suggesting that BA stock is an easy buy. With macro-headwinds such as the U.S.-China trade war and the yield-curve inversion, even a stalwart like Boeing will face volatility.At the same time, the company has a very relevant business, with practically only one other competitor, Airbus (OTCMKTS:EADSY). As I argued in late June of this year, Boeing and Airbus are locked into a duopoly. Sure, other players are trying to break into this arena. However, it's going to take substantial time to break the two giants' deeply embedded foothold.It's no surprise, then, that revenue for Boeing stock is extremely consistent, quarter in and quarter out. In the most recent earnings report, management reported top-line sales of $15.75 billion. That was a 35% loss from the second-quarter 2018 results. And the markets hadn't witnessed a sales decline like that since the Great Recession.Otherwise, since Q1 2013, BA quarterly revenue averages over $23 billion. Once the forgotten money of the Max 8 returns to the runway, Boeing stock should resume its normal course; that is, a somewhat boring name bringing in consistently reliable sales and earnings.Another point to consider is that Airbus really can't impact BA stock. Let's use an extreme example for illustration purposes. One of the reasons I hated Papa John's (NASDAQ:PZZA) after their racial slur incident was transmutability: consumers can easily switch their favorite pizza brand.But an airplane supplier? Such orders take years to fulfill. From that standpoint alone, airliners are better off waiting out the Max 8 rather than disrupting their relationship with Boeing. Furthermore, Airbus knows this situation is temporary. They don't want to load up their inventory with expensive planes they can't move. Diverse Business May Lift BA StockFor most companies, weakening economic metrics represent only one thing: bad news. But for the Boeing stock price, there's a silver lining. * 15 Growth Stocks to Buy for the Long Haul Underlining the economic conflict in the U.S.-China trade war is a militaristic one. I'm not suggesting that the trade war will turn into a real war. Rather, we have many geopolitical adversaries that are seeking to advantage our tariffs tit-for-tat.Most notably, I'm talking about North Korea. The hermit nation has few allies, but China is one of them. While the trade war rages, North Korea hasn't been shy about flexing their muscle. Apparently, bullies don't respect anything but violence. Thus, the U.S. has an incentive to ramp up their war machinery to keep such belligerent sentiment in check. Logically, this helps BA stock longer term due to Boeing's defense arm.And while we're talking about adversaries, we should also mention Russia. Lately, the Russians have been ramping up Cold War tensions. Worryingly, they've also been encroaching closer toward U.S. territory. This is another incentive for our government to fortify our military capabilities, which ultimately supports Boeing stock.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
