Boeing stock fell and made a 52-week low
Boing shares fell 18% on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, hitting a 52-week low at $187. These news made the Boing stock plunge:
“JP Morgan analysts have given up on their long-term “overweight” call on Boeing Co shares, cutting their price target for the company by $160 to just $210 dollars in a note to clients on Thursday.
The bank, which now rates Boeing “neutral”, said the added hit from the coronavirus to airlines made it impossible to stick with its call that investors should wait out the grounding of the company’s 737 MAX planes this year.
Boeing said on Wednesday it was freezing new hiring and overtime except in certain critical areas to preserve cash, and the company is also moving to draw down funds from existing loan facilities as it battles the worst crisis in its history.” Source: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/jp-morgan-abandons-boeing-buy-093927182.html
