Boeing (NYSE:BA) stock fans will want to keep an eye on the company when Dec. 13 rolls around. Apparently, Boeing has a “historic announcement” to make.
Boeing is set to make this announcement at its South Carolina location next week. What the company intends to reveal is still unknown, but there are some rumors that investors will want to keep in mind.
The most important one of these is talk that Boeing has reached a major deal with United Airlines (NASDAQ:UAL). Recent reports claim that United is planning to buy “dozens of Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets” from the company.
Why This Matters for BA Stock
If that rumor holds true, a massive sale of Boeing jets could be an incredible catalyst for BA stock. When those rumors first broke, shares got a nice boost. It’s likely that confirmation of a sale would bring further gains to BA stock. However, investors should note that these are only rumors and may not be the big announcement next week.
No matter the case, investors are hoping for something major to lift Boeing shares. The company has been through a rough period these last few years with crashes and the pandemic harming its business. It’s possible that the Dec. 13 announcement will breath new life into the stock.
BA stock is up 1.6% as of Friday morning but still down 12.5% year-to-date (YTD).
