Boeing Wants to Be More Like Apple in Its Strategic Planning

The stock's dividend yield currently is about 2.21%, representing a sustainable payout ratio of 38%. At the end of the first quarter 2014 Boeing had total cash of nearly $12.2 billion, TTM operating cash flow of $8.77 billion and nearly $5.5 billion of free cash flow, according to Thomson Reuters.

The company recently finalized an order for eight more next-generation 737-800s and seven 737 MAX 8s. According to a Boeing press release the 737 MAX now has 2,017 orders from 40 customers.

At the investors meeting management reiterated its2014 financial guidance and renewed confidence that Boeing can continue to grow its margins and that production issues surrounding the 787s are resolved.

As the worldwide economy strengthens I anticipate more people will travel and airlines will have more money to invest in new planes, leading to increased orders for Boeing. Factor in the cost cutting and production efficiencies that management learns from Apple and EPS should outperform, too.

Most analysts give Boeing a one-year price target of $156 on average. Based on the CEO's determination to improve the production process and strengthen its ROE I see shares soaring to $170 over the next 12 months. Look for buying opportunities this summer below $133.
