Buy Boeing Shares Following Big Buy Order From Emirates Airline

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Boeing (BA - Get Report) shares appear ready for a flight higher following the company's announcement that it sold 150 model 777X airplanes to Emirates Airline. The total list price for all of those planes is $56 billion.

On July 7 I wrote, "Dow 30 Higher as Earnings Begin," and in this post I said that Boeing was the weakest of all Dow Jones Industrial Average components. As of July 3, its shares had lost 5.8% since the start of the year.

Although the Emirates Airline order will not affect Boeing's second-quarter results, it should be talked about in the company's forward guidance. The company plans to report quarterly results before the opening bell on July 23.

Analysts expect Boeing to report earnings per share of $2.00. This is up a penny from the estimate shown in my July 7 post. On June 23 the company announced a 73 cent-per-share dividend payable on Sept. 5 to shareholders of record on Aug. 8.

The stock is up 21% over the last 12 months and has a price-to-earnings ratio (based on trailing 12-month earnings) of 17.0. TheStreet Quant Ratings has a buy rating for Boeing.

Let's take a look at Boeing's daily chart:
