14:01 EDTBABoeing technical comments ahead of results
The stock has performed in line with returns from the broader averages over the last three months. The trend has been range bound with the bulk of the range contained at $118 at the low and $128.50 at the high. These two bounds become the defining markers for post-earnings reactions. A breakout above $128.50 would see first resistance at $130.31 and then at $132.99 and $133.97. The latter is a prior pivot high. If the news disappoints, it isn't likely that shares would reach the low of the range unless the news was an extreme disappointment. First support of significance would be at $124.10 and then at $122.16 and $120.29.
