Boeing to Boost 737 Production

Boeing has been in the headlines recently for malfunctions in its wide-body, long-range 787 Dreamliner, but the future of the company really rests on the success of its more profitable programs that get less attention. Chief among these is the single-aisle, short-range 737, which Boeing estimates will make up more than half of all commercial aviation demand over the next 20 years.

Boeing recently announced that it would dramatically increase production of these vital little planes. For more about Boeing's plans to build the 737 faster, and what that means for investors, tune in to this video by Motley Fool contributor Daniel Ferry.
