+ Watch BA
on My Watchlist
With a focus on giant things that fly, Boeing is a leading maker of large commercial jets and a top defense contractor.
Recent price weakness may be an opportunity to buy in.
As a retiree, I know Boeing's quality control policy, their procurement partners, their work ethic, and their management market strategy. Solid management, and an employee stock purchase plan which gives the employees a vested interest in the ultimate success of the company. I just wonder when management will opt for a split to make the stock more tempting for employee purchases.
Boeing is one of the few plane makers for the worlds airlines. It is basically the go to company for the Airlines.
The market is expanding with the growth of the world's middle class. Boeing is gaining market share with it's fuel efficient planes. Airlines are retiring older planes.
huge pieces of machinery that FLY! engineers working on bigger and more fuel efficient. plus military, plus drones.
backlog of plane orders
Boeing has fallen from market leader to following Airbus. Even more important, they can't execute on their business plan. The 787 late certification debacle will be MBA study fodder for years. The current opportunity to excel is the 737MAX. Time will tell but it took Boeing years of waffling just to decide if they were going to update the 737 or go with a clean sheet new design.
Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:- A payout ratio below 50%- An increasing dividend from the prior yearBecause there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen. Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
Lot heat on them right now about missing flight, this will blow over.
Tensions in Eastern Europe and South China Sea is good news for defense stocks.

Cant buy a dreamliner till 2019. Think they will be just fine
Better then expected past, lower then expected future, but still good solid growth, better transparent stock, predictable outlook, huge secure buffer orders, double future needs, solid dividends. What matters is not more orders that BA and AirBus can't fill for 7-10 yrs, what matters is ramp up production and delivery and great management in cost cuts, efficiency and profit. Once labor settles and other states opens to invite expension and benefits. new plane growth pain getting towards maturing stage, then kicks in economic production line benefits. good safer defense dividend stock in portfolio to balance speculative bets.
Boeing is the only big jet maker that is left, Great planes.
fleet age, tech improvements resulting in efficiencies with each new model, got rid of defined benefit legacy retirements.
Excellent Management team & a Great Product Line
leader in field
Interested in how folks think the reduction in defense spending will affect Boeing
