Battery Maker For Boeing Gets Regulator Clearance
(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
NPR's business news starts with good news for Boeing's battery maker.
When all Boeing 787 Dreamliners were grounded for electrical issues, it sent the stock of the company that makes the plane's batteries into a tailspin.

Boeing will announce its fourth-quarter earnings - by the way - later today.
