    The $175 bln aircraft giant’s new CEO, David Calhoun, says he won’t cut its $4.6 bln a year dividend. Yet Boeing will burn cash as long as the 737 MAX remains grounded. Borrowing more can paper over problems, but cutting the payout would be prudent in case of further delays.

    The printer maker may try to oust most of HP’s directors to win support for its $33 bln merger proposal. HP’s intransigence isn’t constructive, but its board is stronger. A proxy fight could leave Xerox activist Icahn in control, with only a small share of the company.
