No. 3 – Boeing Takes Off, Airlines Delayed

There’s an anomaly in the aerospace industry. Boeing (BA) is flirting with all-time highs while the airlines remain stuck at the gate. Where’s the disconnect?

Boeing is an international story, Guy Adami says, and it’s also cream of the crop. The stock is doing everything right, Pete says. For instance, Boeing has made 600 sales of its Dreamliner aircraft. Compare that to sales numbering 13 for Airbus’ A350. “That’s absolutely brutal,” Pete Najarian says.



Stacey Briere Gilbert says even with the bearish sentiment toward the airlines, there’s still a “ripple play” with titanium. She likes Titanium Metals (TIE), which is the focus of takeover rumors, as well as Allegheny Tech (ATI) and RTI International Metals (RTI).

Guy adds Precision Castparts (PCP) to that list. The company makes titanium used in airplanes and is up around 900% over the last five years.

But the bottom line is that even though it’s the first time in five years that all the major airlines are out of bankruptcy, none of them are particularly worth owning outright. The guys agree: stick with Boeing.
