Boeing Upgraded to “Overweight” at Morgan Stanley; New Plane Orders Should Boost Earnings (BA)

Aircraft maker The Boeing Company ( BA ) on Monday caught a big upgrade from analysts at Morgan Stanley following a big plane order from Etihad Airways.

The firm said it boosted its rating on BA from "Equalweight" to "Overweight" with an $82 price target. That target suggests a 14% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $71.93.

Morgan Stanley made the move following Boeing's announcement that United Arab Emirates airline giant Etihad Airways has ordered ten Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and two Boeing 777 Freighters. Those new orders carry a price tag of around $2.8 billion.

Boeing shares fell 42 cents, or -0.6%, in premarket trading Monday.

The Bottom Line

Shares of Boeing ( BA ) have a 2.34% dividend yield, based on Friday's closing stock price of $71.93. The stock has technical support in the $65 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $75 price level.
