The industrial giant has lost all the gains amassed since President Donald Trump arrived in the White House in January 2017, which begs the question: Is the maker of the presidential plane, Air Force One, on solid financial ground? "Boeing is in distress and a lot of that is self-inflicted."

Because of that, I switched Orlov back to the left and Dillon on the right. I also bumped Jonas Siegenthaler up to the top pair as he seems to play well with John Carlson and moved Michal Kempny down to the third.
