NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Boeing (BA - Get Report) shares appear ready for a flight higher following the company's announcement that it sold 150 model 777X airplanes to Emirates Airline. The total list price for all of those planes is $56 billion.
On July 7 I wrote, "Dow 30 Higher as Earnings Begin," and in this post I said that Boeing was the weakest of all Dow Jones Industrial Average components. As of July 3, its shares had lost 5.8% since the start of the year.
Although the Emirates Airline order will not affect Boeing's second-quarter results, it should be talked about in the company's forward guidance. The company plans to report quarterly results before the opening bell on July 23.
