Finally, some good news for Boeing (BA). Boeing is up 4%, its largest one-day advance in nearly three months, on news their 737 Max jet may be ready to fly sooner rather than later. The Boeing plane has been grounded since this spring after two fatal crashes.

Hong Kong is the most popular place to fly into to visit Macau. Last quarter operating revenue from Wynn's two casinos in Macau fell by over $200 million.
