Investors are betting big on Boeing for now, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average was the beneficiary on Thursday.
The Dow finished the day up 0.2%, or about 50 points. But Boeing's shares were up more than 4.3% and added nearly 98 points to the blue-chip index by itself.
At the same time, the S&P 500 slipped a very modest 0.05% and the Nasdaq Composite fell 0.36%.
Boeing was surging because of its Tuesday announcement that it is marshaling a temporary workforce of several hundred workers to help get 737 Max jetliners back into service once the FAA and others agree that its fixes to the jet's problems will work.
