Prospects for Boeing

With the recent difficulties in emerging markets, it's probably a good time to assess whether there will be any effect on the current outlook for The Boeing Company in 2014. Moreover, if the aviation market is affected then a major engine manufacturer like General Electric Company will be too.

The Boeing Company's production plans
The two key drivers of its share price are its delivery rates and order book. Investing Fools already know about Boeing's plans for 2014. In particular, Fools will be monitoring Boeing's aim of ramping up production of the 787 Dreamliner to 10 a month, and the Boeing 737 to 42 a month.  In addition investors in General Electric Company and the U.K.'s Rolls Royce will be interested too, because they are the engine suppliers to the 787 program. With regard to the 787, there has been some mixed news recently.
