✈️ Boeing Shares Rally Over 5%
Boeing emerged as the biggest gainer on the DJIA after the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reported over 831K passengers traveled on flights in the US on Sunday.
What Happened? Boeing shares gained 5.5% Monday, adding 64 points to the Dow’s 358-point gain. The TSA announced a nearly 10X growth in travelers since mid-April, with 831,000 travelers screened at US airports on Sunday. Although nowhere close to the 2.6M fliers that traveled this time last year, the modest 831K travelers is a reason to cheer after Covid-19 decimated demand for commercial air travel. The number of Covid-19 cases in the country is trending lower, which is good news for the broader travel sector.
However, market experts are cautious. Air traffic may have spiked 10X on one particular day, but that doesn’t mean the number will sustain in the face of 5M+ reported Covid cases in the US thus far. It will take a lot more than over 830K passengers a day to turn the fortunes of Boeing.
Separate from the Covid-related slowdown, Boeing also suffered a significant setback due to the global grounding of Boeing 737 Max airplanes, as a result of the twin crashes within five months. With its current market cap of $100B, there’s a long way to go before the company regains its lost luster.
Market Reaction: Boeing share rallied 5.52%, finally settling at $179.41. The stock is up 2.07% before trading hours.
Winvesta Writes ✍🏻
A good faith violation (GFV) occurs if you purchase a stock and sell it before the funds that you used to buy it have settled. It’s called ‘good faith violation’ because there was no effort in ‘good faith’ to add necessary funds in the account before the settlement date.
