Aircraft manufacturer Boeing (BA) reported on Wednesday that the ban on 737 Max has been conditionally lifted by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and that it is set to take off again, thereby ending the plane's 20-month long grounding.
The Boeing 737 Max passenger airliner was grounded globally in March last year following two fatal crashes which killed 346 people. It was the longest jet grounding in the history of commercial aviation (well, the longest that was eventually allowed to fly again, at least).

In my previous article, I wrote about the three ways to define the edge of circle of competency that Chang Jing from Himalaya Capital defined in his value investing class.
However, to define the edge of a circle of competency, we have to build a circle of competency first. How can we tell whether we have built a circle of competency? Chang has offered some general guidelines for this as well.

Following the deadly crashes of two of its 737 Max planes in 2018 and 2019, the model was grounded around the world and orders were cancelled until the issues could be fixed. The stock price dropped, but it didn't go well and truly down the drain until the Covid-19 crisis struck, hitting the aircraft industry hard and making Boeing's new boatload of debt from the 737 Max scandal even more of a lodestone.

Financial markets recorded widely mixed results during the first half of 2020 as the spread of the coronavirus disrupted global economies. Although stocks and bonds experienced extraordinary volatility, historic levels of fiscal and monetary stimulus helped mitigate the losses.
Market sentiment was positive as we entered the year, and the S&P 500 Index advanced to a record high on February 19. However, stocks began falling as the coronavirus spread in Italy and other countries outside China. The major indexes continued their slide as cases mounted in the U.S. and New York City became the epicenter of the pandemic.
