Boeing's $4.3 Billion Purchase

Boeing (NYSE: BA) needs a big win to turn this awful year around, and it may have finally struck a positive deal.

Details: Reuters reported Sunday that Boeing will acquire Spirit AeroSystems (NYSE: SPR) for $37.25 per share, which values the aerostructure supplier at about $4.3 billion. An official announcement could arrive today.

  • Some of Spirit’s assets will be owned by Boeing’s rival Airbus (OTCMKTS: EADSY).

  • Spirit closed at $32.87 per share on Friday.

Background: Both Boeing and Spirit have negotiated this deal for some time. The agreement comes as Boeing has faced numerous, well-publicized safety incidents this year.

Stock Price: Those safety incidents have caused Boeing to drop 27% this year.

Early Bird’s Nest Egg Gains: Acquiring Spirit and bringing the supplier in-house allows Boeing to address safety concerns, improve quality control in the manufacturing process, streamline production, and have more direct control over a major part of its supply chain.

Final Thoughts: While a costly acquisition, this deal could lead to long-term cost savings for Boeing.

The cryptocurrency Chainlink jumped 5% Sunday after the Web3 platform posted an adoption update.

Details: There were 12 integrations of 6 Chainlink services across 8 different chains this week, including on Ethereum and Avalanche, the platform posted on social media. Those integrations include several new crypto projects.

Price: Chainlink is one of the few digital coins that are down in value this year. It is also down 20% in the last 30 days.

Final Thoughts: This a volatile crypto, but the new integrations should improve the value of Chainlink.
