The Boeing logo is seen at their headquarters in ChicagoBoeing forecast a rise in cash flow to $6.2 billion in 2015, at the top end of expectations, from $4.3 billion at the end of the year. In contrast, commercial airplane margins narrowed as Boeing delivered more 787 Dreamliners, which remain costly to produce. Despite the concerns, Boeing's "solid 2015 cash flow guidance suggests confidence on lower 787 unit costs," JPMorgan analyst Joseph Nadol said in a note to clients. The cash forecast for 2015 was "a very robust number," and gives Boeing flexibility to return money to shareholders, said Peter Arment, an analyst at Sterne Agee.

Costa Rica Presidency handout photo shows Cuba's President Castro arriving in AlajuelaBy Enrique Pretel SAN JOSE (Reuters) - Cuba will not accept any interference in its internal affairs in talks with the United States, President Raul Castro said on Wednesday, warning that meddling would make a diplomatic thawing between the two countries meaningless. Castro urged U.S. President Barack Obama to use executive powers to ease a decades-long embargo, saying the U.S. leader could extend measures to soften the embargo, like those announced for telecoms, to the rest of the Cuban economy. "If these problems are not resolved, this diplomatic rapprochement between Cuba and the United States would be meaningless," he said. The United States and Cuba held historic high-level talks in Havana last week that are expected to lead to the re-establishment of diplomatic ties severed by Washington in 1961.
