Neal Dihora: Today, we are talking about commercial aerospace--specifically aircraft with more than 100 seats, a market dominated by Boeing (BA) and Airbus (AIR).

The promise of fuel-efficient aircraft combined with low interest rates have helped these two firms combine 11,500 orders of undelivered aircraft, that totals more than five years of production. Given this and the confidence of Boeing and Airbus management teams, they will be increasing production rates over the next five years.
