Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA): Current price $115.50

On Sunday, Norwegian Air Shuttle found a third difficulty with one of its two 787 Dreamliners. A plane scheduled to fly from New York to Oslo, Norway, was delayed, and 70 of the 250 passengers had to spend another night in New York due to a hydraulic pump determined unable to handle the full weight of 250 ticketed customers. The flight then made its way to Oslo, according to The Wall Street Journal, and the passengers left behind received food vouchers and 600 euros as compensation. Norwegian Air Shuttle has taken delivery of two 787s thus far out of a total order for eight, and this marks the third time one of its scheduled flights has been cancelled or delayed.
