+ 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.
Defense industry play due to pending escalations in the Middle East.
Boeing's ubiquity is clear, as you can see a large portion of their planes at any airport. They are spread nicely over commercial air travel and defense, building airplanes for both. Plus, their sizeable backlog of orders means they will have revenue for years to come, unless the world inexplicably cancels all airplane orders (highly unlikely).
Cheap oil, better more efficiently run airlines, more competition and backlog.will be 200.
I like BA here. Transports are really taking a hit but new planes are needed and I think they are the best in this area.
BOEING CO, ticker BA, has a TTM ROE calculated by Zacks of 56,43%. It's one of my LONG picks.
5-7-2015- - - - -Kuwait is expected to announce in coming weeks order for 28 Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornets, $3 billion-plus deal that will keep jets' St. Louis production line running well into 2019, according to people familiar with deal.
Boeing 787 should bring a lot of Cash to the company - See interview with Epoch in Barron's from April 27, 2015
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.
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.
