1402 ET -- Boeing is one of the most mentioned companies in the U.S. across all news items in the past 12 hours, according to Factiva data. Boeing's Starliner spacecraft sits atop a United Launch Alliance rocket at Cape Canaveral's Space Launch Complex 41 ahead of NASA's Boeing Crew Flight Test slated for Monday evening. The weather is looking favorable for the first crewed launch of the Starliner, Boeing's reusable spaceship that will take astronauts to and from the International Space Station. A two-man crew will fly to the space station and remain for about two weeks. ULA is a 50/50 joint venture between Boeing and Lockheed Martin. Dow Jones & Co. owns Factiva.
