Boeing's stock takes a hit after Southwest pushes back estimate of 737 MAX return by a monthShares of Boeing Co. took a hit in afternoon trading Friday, after Southwest Airlines Co. disclosed in an SEC filing that it will be pushing back the expected return of the grounded 737 MAX planes by a month. Boeing's stock was down 1.5%; just before the release of Southwest's 10-Q filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the stock was down 1.0%. Boeing's stock price decline of $5.40 was shaving about 37 points off the Dow Jones Industrial Average's price, which was down 30 points. Southwest shares were down less than 0.1%. Southwest had said last month that it has removed the 737 MAX from its schedules through Feb. 8, 2020, as the air carrier estimates it will take two months to comply with applicable regulatory directives, including necessary training, once the Federal Aviation Administration lifts its order to ground the 737 MAX. "Based on continued uncertainty around the timing of the MAX return to service, the company soon plans to proactively remove the MAX from its flight schedule through March 6, 2020," Southwest stated in the 10-Q. Boeing's stock has gained 4.6% over the past three months and Southwest shares have rallied 15.3%, while the Dow has advanced 4.8%.

Boeing's stock rises, as profit falls well below expectations but revenue beatsShares of Boeing Co. rose 1.2% in premarket trading Wednesday, after the aerospace and defense giant reported third-quarter profit that fell well below expectations while revenue beat, as lower 737 deliveries were partially offset by higher defense and services volume. Net income fell to $1.17 billion, or $2.05 a share, from $2.36 billion, or $4.07 a share, in the year-earlier period. Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted earnings per share declined to $1.45 from $3.58, missing the FactSet consensus of $2.07. Revenue fell 21% to $19.98 billion, but topped the FactSet consensus of $19.61 billion. Commercial airplane deliveries fell 67% to 62, below the FactSet consensus of 65, while the segment's revenue declined 41% to $8.25 billion to beat expectations of $7.78 billion. Defense, space and security revenue grew 2% to $7.04 billion to beat expectations of $6.76 billion. The company said it assumes regulatory approval of the 737 Max's return to service will begin in the fourth quarter, and that it will gradually increase the 737 production rate to 57 per month from 42 per month by late 2020. The stock has shed 9.7% over the past three months through Tuesday, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has slipped 2.1%.

Boeing committee set to recommend safety changes: reportBoeing Co.'s full board of directors is expected to hear a report this week detailing structural corporate changes that can be made to improve the safety of its planes following two fatal crashes of its 737 Max planes, Sunday. The recommended changes from a small committee of board members include a new corporate reporting structure, creating a new safety group and building simpler cockpits, the Times said. Under one proposed change, engineers would reportedly report directly to the company's head engineer, rather than a business-unit leader who might favor production deadlines over fixing problems. Boeing in monthly aircraft production last week as the 737 Max remains grounded. Boeing shares are up 18% year to date, compared to the S&P 500's 20% gain.
