Boeing Co. /zigman2/quotes/208579720/composite BA +0.57% has expanded inspections of newly built 787 Dreamliners after finding a previously known manufacturing defect in sections of the jet where it hadn't been detected yet, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing industry and government officials. The newly uncovered problem does not cause an imminent safety hazard, but it is likely to increase the Federal Aviation Administration's scrutiny of the jet's production line, the report said, quoting the officials. Other defects have sparked the FAA's review earlier this year. A Boeing spokesman told the newspaper the defects are surface spots on the jet's fuselage isn't as smooth as it should be. Shares of Boeing were recently down 0.1%, underperforming the broad market. So far this year, Boeing stock is down 29%, contrasting with gains around 14% for the S&P 500 index. /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX -0.20%
