T = Trends for a Stock’s Movement

Boeing is an aerospace company. It focuses primarily on engineering, information technology, research and development, test and evaluation, technology strategy development, environmental remediation management, and intellectual property management. The company operates in five segments: Commercial Airplanes, Boeing Military Aircraft, Network & Space Systems, Global Services & Support, and Boeing Capital Corp.

China has already established itself as the largest market for automobiles in the world, and thanks to recent relaxations on regulations governing local airlines, it might become one of the largest markets for aircraft as well, as Boeing is getting a $3.8 billion taste of. Juneyao Airlines Co., a major Chinese airline, is now able to launch a low cost subsidy due to the aforementioned slackening of government control on the low-cost industry and is stocking its new unit with fifty Boeing 737 jets, including the next-generation 737 MAX planes. At list prices, these planes sell for between $76 million and $109.9 million, leading to a total cost of between $3.8 billion and $5.5 billion for the order, though manufacturers will often supply discounts on the list prices. Boeing rival Airbus Group NV believes that China may overtake the U.S. as the largest aircraft market by 2032. Bloomberg reported that China’s Civil Aviation Administration said earlier this year that it would relax the regulations and explore tax breaks that would encourage budget carriers, as China Eastern ordered seventy Airbus A320s worth about $6.4 billion this past March. “The low-cost carrier environment is getting increasingly friendlier,” Patrick Xu, a transportation and infrastructure analyst at Barclays told Bloomberg in a phone interview. “We are starting to see more start ups.”
