CNBC is worthless, and always has been. Any station that gives airtime to idiots like Cramer and Kudlow cannot be taken seriously by anyone with an IQ over potato.

Half the time, they publish back to back articles that are contradictory. Article 1 = Dow 15K, guaranteed!. Article 2 = Dow -400K, we're all doomed!

Its not the planes they are profiting off of. Its the drones.

I don't have specific numbers in front of me, but I'd bet that the reverse of that is true. Traditionally, defense contracts are usually money losing ventures for all parties involved. Due to the complexities involved, and the farked up low-bid process in place, most contracts come in late and way over cost. Boeing, LM, etc. all compete for them, but mainly as a way to keep the contracts out of the hands of the other guys. It's really all about PR. For Boeing, massive profits on commercial aircraft help offset losses from military projects.
