Max Hu of ZZ Capital international presented his investment thesis on Boeing (US: BA) at Asian Investing Summit 2023. Max also discussed his macro outlook.

Thesis summary:

Boeing is a leading global company that sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets, satellites, telecommunications equipment, and missiles worldwide. The company generated revenue of $66 billion in 2022 (~40% Commercial Aviation, ~35% Defense & Space, and ~25% Aviation Services).

Boeing shares recently traded at a price-to-book multiple of 1.8x. The stock price has declined by ~40% since 2017 and has underperformed over the last five years, likely due to bad US-China relations, 737 MAX-related news, and covid.

Max believes that the stagnating stock price provides an attractive entry point for long-term investors. The shares could benefit either if (1) China-US relations improve and Boeing receives new orders from China, or (2) China-US relations deteriorate further, in which case dual-use aviation and military assets could become highly valuable.
