Has This Company's Luck Turned?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.

Boeing (NYSE: BA  ) was on an order hot streak in 2011, with a multibillion-dollar order seemingly every month. But Boeing's issue has never been securing the orders, but rather building and delivering the planes in a reasonable amount of time. To that end, Boeing recently announced that it will not hit its delivery goal for the year. How much does this hurt the aerospace giant, and what does it mean going forward?

While we still believe that 2012 could be a great year for Boeing, there is one specific stock that we believe will grow tremendously and take Latin American retail by storm. There is astounding growth potential for this company that we've dubbed our "Top Stock for 2012."  The Motley Fool has compiled a special FREE report outlining this company. In it you'll discover the company hand-picked by our analysts that is positioned to be the titan of retail in the future. You can access the report -- 100% free of charge -- by clicking here.

    "While we still believe that 2012 could be a great year for Boeing" ...who is this "we"? You own Rich TMFDitty Smith prophecied that we investors could "kiss any more earnings from Boeing goodbye" after the 787 which is it? Doom or Dream? Amazing ya'll choose to print this rubble. You drink the CAPS koolaid, that's one thing, but to drag others into the cesspool with you...that's just sad.
