The Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA): Current price $115.70

Boeing is readying for potential delays in jetliner deliveries, including its new 787 Dreamliner, which could be caused by the federal government shutdown that has idled thousands of United States aviation officials who are required to certify the planes. Boeing said that the delays, if they begin, would likely impact the company’s newest models, like the 787, and could also affect development of other new models such as the stretched 787-9 derivative. Older models such as the 737, which do not need significant engineering as part of the production, are less likely to be involved.
