WTO rulings 'clearly in favor' of Boeing, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Douglas Harned commented on the WTO Appellate Body ruling on A350 and A380 launch aid. In a research note to investors, Harned contented that many findings went in Airbus' (EADSY) direction, he views the most important issues as A350 and A380 launch aid and that issues on earlier subsidies are "not considered relevant." The rulings on A350 and A380 launch aid, he said, appear to be "clearly in favor" of Boeing (BA), but added that it is unclear what scale of action is now warranted in response. He expects the AB's action related to EU claims of Boeing subsidies to come later this year. The analyst has an Outperform rating on Airbus and Boeing, with respective targets of EUR129 and $422.
