Come Fly With Boeing

Stocks in this article: BA

Investor interest:

  • I gauge individual investor sentiment by the readers of Motley Fool and 4,270 readers have given the stock a 91% vote of confidence to beat the market
  • Some of the firms giving the stock a recent upgrade are Oppenheimer, Stifel Nicolaus, Argus, RBC Capital and Deutsche Securities
  • Columnists with positive opinions have been Tobin Smith, Jim Jubal and Jim Cramer

How has the market treated Boeing? While Boeing was up 19% in the past year, Lockheed Martin (LMT) was up 29%, Precision Castparts (PCP) up 7% and General Dynamics (GD) up 3%:

Lockheed Martin

  • TheStreet Ratings staff rates the stock A-
  • Revenue projected to decrease 1.80% this year and decrease another 1.30% next year
  • Earnings estimated to increase by 3.20% this year and 3.60% next year
Precision Castparts
  • TheStreet Ratings staff rates the stock A-
  • Revenue projected to increase by 17.00% this year and another 12.00% next year
  • Earnings estimated to increase by 19.20% this year and 15.10% next year
General Dynamics

  • TheStreet Ratings staff give the stock a B rating
  • Revenue projected to be down slightly by 1.10% this year and up only 0.10% next year
  • Earnings expected to be down 2.00% this year and up 4.90% next year

Conclusion: Boeing seems to be an ideal candidate for conservative IRAs on the dividend reinvestment program. The long-term revenue prospects look enormous and if they can't produce aircraft at a profit, who can? As always, keep an eye on the moving averages and turtle channels so you can add to your holdings on a dip:
