+ 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.
mgk, s&p 4 star, 148.85
Positive: - Commercial aircraft will be in high demand for a long time to come - The only new competitors will come from China but they are far from proving themselves - Military markets are currently growing and with continued growth of tensions worldwide this trend will continue for some years Negative: - Expensive stock Category: BV
Still selling at a fair price, Boeing is firing on all cylinders right now. Very healthy return on capital figures with growing sales and earnings. Manageable debt and lots of demand for jets. Nice dividend as well.
Airlines are flush with cash, due to low jet fuel prices. They will invest in new planes, Boeing should benefit.That's my theory anyway:)CheersHarry
I'll leave it to the more 'significant' analyzer types to advise. But....only one real competitor for large passenger jets, a major backlog already, future sales assured for at least 3-4 years, a nice tidy dividend etc. etc. If, assuming market stays stable, then in the 140 somish range...buy buy buy
Boeing is a fairly diversified company for being in the aerospace business. I expect that its military contracts will generate more revenue as conflict looms.
Best in the world in their sector. Period.
This is how you travel
Investigations into "Illegal" distribution of "Unlawful" weapons to Contractors.....will help!
I like planes.
Industry leader yet still looking for ways to improve and shortenproduct construction. Popular model plane sold out until theyear 2021. Toured construction facility recently impressed withcleanliness and organization.
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.
