More bad news for Boeing, stocks fall amid China’s coronavirus and more in Tuesday’s Closing Bell on Money and Markets.
The Top Story
In addition to the market fall off, it may be June or July before federal regulators sign off on the Boeing 737 Max aircraft, according to sources, who told CNBC on Tuesday that the date is considerably later than the company expected.
The 737 Max has been grounded by all U.S. airlines with the aircraft in their fleets and the company recently reported a loss of 87 commercial airplane orders in 2019.
The company could be in the market to secure up to $10 billion in loans to help offset the losses from production halting.
Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) shares dropped 3.3% Tuesday as a result of the news. Trading of the company was halted in the afternoon after the news came out.
