Another Mega-Deal Takes Flight


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which editor and analyst Isaac Pino and technology editor and analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac discusses the recent announcement of a huge deal for aircraft manufacturers Boeing and Airbus. Norwegian Air Shuttle, a low-cost European carrier, will purchase more than 200 planes from the two manufacturers in an attempt to expand its operations and steal market share from rivals. For Boeing, this is the second mega-deal in the past two months since the industrial giant reported a $20 billion order from Southwest Airlines in December. Isaac provides insight on other companies that could benefit from a growing interest in energy-efficient aircraft in 2012.

As oil prices continue to soar, energy-efficient options for airlines will present tremendous opportunities to save on jet fuel. However, investors can actually profit from a run-up in fuel prices if they identify the companies that will benefit in the long-run. The Motley Fool recently identified a few companies poised to profit from $100 oil. Read further in our special free report, "3 Stocks for $100 Oil."
