13:48 EDTBAEarnings Preview: Boeing shares flat since Q1 earnings report
The Boeing Company (BA) is expected to report second quarter earnings on Wednesday, July 23 before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 10:30 am ET. Boeing is a diversified aerospace company. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $2.01 on revenue of $22.33B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.88-$2.24 on revenue of $21.68B-$23.12B. LAST QUARTER: Boeing reported first quarter core EPS of $1.76 against estimates for $1.56 on revenue of $20.46B against estimates for $20.19B. The company raised its FY14 core EPS view to $7.15-$7.35, from $7.00-$7.20 to reflect the benefit of a tax settlement to be recognized in Q2, compared to consensus of $7.38. It forecast FY14 revenue of $87.5B-$90.5B, versus consensus of $89.92B. Boeing reported a backlog of $440B at Q1-end, and continues to see FY14 commercial deliveries of 715-725. For FY14, the company expects a book-to-build ratio above 1. On May 21 at its Investor Day meeting, Boeing reported a Commercial airplanes backlog of $374B, and a Defense backlog of $67B, with approximately 30% of that being international. CEO Jim McNerney said there were "significant" opportunities ahead to add to the backlog, and the Boeing 787-9 was on track for a mid-year delivery. ANALYST REACTION: Street research has been mostly positive in the weeks leading up to Boeing's Q2 report. On May 2, Argus raised their price target on Boeing to $161 from $150 after the company reported higher than expected Q1 EPS. The firm kept a Buy rating on the stock. On May 5, CRT Capital raised their price target on Boeing to $165 from $148 and increased estimates to reflect stronger than expected Q1 earnings, operating margin improvements and buybacks. Shares were Buy rated. On June 11, RBC Capital downgraded Boeing to Sector Perform from Outperform due to valuation and maintained its $145 price target. PRICE ACTION: Boeing’s shares are trading at essentially the same levels they did prior to the company's Q1 results. In afternoon trading ahead of Wednesday's Q2 report, Boeing’s shares are up about 0.6% to $129.20.

Boeing is struggling to find buyers for 10 787 Dreamliners, reports the Wall Street Journal.
