NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Boeing (BA) - Get Report is close to a deal with Qatar Airways for a multibillion-dollar commercial jet order, Bloomberg reports, citing sources.

This comes after the Chicago-based company yesterday gained U.S. approval for a sale of F-15 fighter jets to Qatar and Kuwait.

Qatar Air is in late-stage discussions to buy at least 30 Boeing wide-body jets and would take 787 Dreamliner and 777 models, the sources said.

The order could be valued at $6.7 billion at catalog prices, but airlines usually negotiate discounts, Bloomberg noted.

Shares of Boeing were declining in mid-afternoon trading today.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Hold" rating with a score of C+ on the stock.

The primary factors that have impacted the rating are mixed. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth and notable return on equity.

But the team also finds weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and generally higher debt management risk.

Recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer's view or that of this articles's author.
