NYSE: BA | Boeing Co. News, Ratings, and Charts

BA – With the U.S. economy witnessing two consecutive quarters of GDP decline, many analysts believe that a recession has arrived. As the market is expected to face extreme pressure in the upcoming months, shares of fundamentally weak companies Boeing Company (BA), Archer Aviation (ACHR), Beyond Meat (BYND), Carvana (CVNA), and fuboTV (FUBO) could keep losing. So, these stocks are best avoided now. Read more….

Despite the Federal Reserve’s three interest rate hikes to combat inflation this year, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) hit a multi-decade high of 9.1% last month. After another 75 basis-point rate hike yesterday for the second straight month, the central bank is expected to increase rates further. Therefore, a recession looks unavoidable.

The U.S. economy contracted at a 0.9% annual rate in the second quarter after a 1.6% decline in the first quarter, making many analysts believe that a recession has arrived. Moreover, an unexpected decline in global business activity and a sudden rise in weekly jobless claims are expected to keep the market highly volatile in the upcoming weeks.

Amid this backdrop, low profitability, weak financials, and unfavorable analyst estimates make shares of The Boeing Company (BA), Archer Aviation Inc. (ACHR), Beyond Meat, Inc. (BYND), Carvana Co. (CVNA), and fuboTV Inc. (FUBO) risky investments. These stocks could keep losing in the near term.
