In the said letter, Miller Value Partners highlighted a few stocks and Boeing Co (NYSE:BA) is one of them. Boeing is an aerospace company. Year-to-date, Boeing Co (NYSE:BA) stock lost 37% and on June 9th it had a closing price of $216.74. Here is what Miller Value Partners said:
“We built a position in Boeing Co. (BA) during the period which returned 23.1%. Boeing was hit from the impact on travel by COVID-19 and the belief that the government would seek equity positions in connection to any financial help. Boeing’s CEO, David Calhoun, stated that Boeing will not accept government aid if it requires an equity stake noting that they have plenty of other options. The company has stated that they have ~$15B in liquidity and believes they will be able to meet its obligations through the summer (~8 months). The company suspended their regular dividend indefinitely while also pausing any share buybacks.”
