Boeing Needs to Head Lower: Murphy

Problems with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner means now is not the time to buy the aerospace company's stock, Rosecliff Capital's Mike Murphy said Thursday.

"I do not think now is the time to get in on Boeing," he said.

"If you look at the way the stock traded this morning on news that their entire fleet of Dreamliners was being grounded, it came down almost picture-perfect, down to the $72.60, $72.80 range, which is the 100- and 200-day moving averages, hit that level and bounced right up to where a few seconds ago it was positive."

The Federal Aviation Administration indefinitely grounded the new 787 Dreamliners due to problems with the airliners' batteries.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Murphy saw the issue as more than simple teething pains.

"I would not jump in on Boeing here, and the reason is, this problem is not going to go away anytime soon," he said.

"This is not something that's going to be going away tomorrow or the next day. This is a much bigger problem for Boeing, in my opinion. I need to see it a lot lower."
