Boeing (BA - Get Report) shares are being grounded Tuesday, falling 1.5% to $348.41, after the company reported a 56% drop in May deliveries due in part to a decline in its formerly top-selling 737 MAX jets.

The stock market sprinted ahead in early action Tuesday but then gave back most of the gains. Meanwhile, two optimism gauges sent contradictory messages.
The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index slid 5.4 points to 53.2 in early June, an abrupt comedown from May's 15-year high. President Donald Trump's decision to escalate the China trade war by hiking tariffs on May 10 loomed large in the reversal.
LOS ANGELES -- June 11, 2019 -- The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index, a leading national poll on consumer confidence, fell 9.2 percent overall in June as every component on the index slid.

Investor’s Business Daily with a poll — and, by the way, I need to repeatedly remind you that the IBD poll remains one of the most accurate polls in recent years in predicting the outcome of various elections, including presidential. What they have determined in this latest poll is: “Public Turned Off by Media’s Relentlessly Negative Coverage of Trump — 55% of the public says they’ve grown ‘weary from the media’s persistently negative coverage of President Trump.’
If you're keeping score at home, the tally is Raghavan Mayur 2, Karl Rove zero.
A lot of people are walking into Raghavan Mayur’s office in Ramsey these days to ask how he conducts polls.
In the cornucopia of pro-Clinton polling that preceded the 2016 presidential election, two polls stood out as outliers: the USC/LA Times tracking poll and the Investor's Business Daily/TIPP tracking poll.
All night long, we heard the news networks talk about how "all" the polls and pundits were wrong. They were saying that Clinton is underperforming expectations, and voters were coming out for Trump in numbers no one had expected.
