Boeing (BA) stockholders have had much to worry about lately, from President Donald Trump's China trade war to 737 Max crashes. But the Dow Jones giant has regained support at key technical levels. Is Boeing stock a good buy now? Investors should look at the aerospace giant's fundamentals and the stock chart.
Americans' views of the near-term U.S. economic outlook remain solidly pessimistic, edging up only slightly from a three-year low, the October IBD/TIPP Poll found. The weak reading came despite an easing of China trade war tensions that fueled last month's stock market gains. But the rally lost steam as weaker economic data last week seemed to confirm that growth has turned sluggish, though the Dow Jones slashed weekly losses in volatile action. The House Democrats' opening of a Trump impeachment inquiry also may have weighed on the outlook.
LOS ANGELES -- October 8, 2019 -- The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index, a leading national poll on consumer confidence, rose 3.5% to 52.6 in October, reversing two months of decline. The index now remains above 50.0 for a record 37 consecutive months, 34 of which have occurred during the Trump presidency. This is the longest streak in positive territory for any U.S. president since IBD/TIPP began tracking. Under President George W. Bush, the index had two separate 24-month runs above 50.0. An index reading below 50.0 for the IBD/TIPP indexes indicates pessimism.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has edged out former Vice President Joe Biden, though both candidates would beat President Donald Trump in direct match-ups, according to a new IBD-TIPP poll released Monday.
The latest IBD/TIPP poll reveals some interesting nuggets that suggest the presidential race is very much in flux. It may not have been the debates alone, but rather the debates combined with Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (Vt.) declining polls and heart attack, open questions about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and former vice president Joe Biden, and solid progress by South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg that have made the Democratic presidential nomination even more uncertain.
Elizabeth Warren has taken a narrow lead over Joe Biden in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, the October IBD/TIPP Poll found. Both candidates continue to lead in a head-to-head matchup against President Trump, though Biden had a more comfortable lead, outside the margin of error.
Half of Americans think President Donald Trump's effort to get Ukraine to investigate potential 2020 election rival Joe Biden is an impeachable offense, the October IBD/TIPP Poll found. But the Ukraine scandal has yet to hurt Trump's approval rating or 2020 election prospects. In fact, Trump cut Biden's advantage in a head-to-head matchup nearly in half compared to the September poll. And a solid majority favors a probe of Biden and his son.
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.’
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.
With the 2016 election nearly upon us, the political world is once again awash with presidential polls. Many of them show very different things, with some showing Hillary Clinton ahead and others Donald Trump. They can't all be right. How can you tell which polls to trust?
The venerated Gallup Poll took a beating this year for being such an outlier in its predictions of who would win the presidency, and the New York Times's Nate Silver has now served up further evidence that the firm has lost its mojo. Silver analyzed the results obtained by about two dozen top polling firms that ran multiple surveys in the last three weeks of the campaign and then ranked the pollsters based on their accuracy: Gallup came in dead last, with an average error of 7.2 points compared to the actual results.
