The Dow component leading the way higher looks to be Boeing (NYSE: BA), which is sporting a $1.21 gain (+0.9%) bringing the stock to $135.99. This single gain is lifting the Dow Jones Industrial Average by 9.16 points or roughly accounting for 53.9% of the Dow's overall gain. Volume for Boeing currently sits at 143,362 shares traded vs. an average daily trading volume of 4.5 million shares.

Boeing has a market cap of $99.94 billion and is part of the industrial goods sector and aerospace/defense industry. Shares are up 76.5% year to date as of Tuesday's close. The stock's dividend yield sits at 1.5%.

The Boeing Company, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the design, development, manufacture, sale, and support of commercial jetliners, military aircraft, satellites, missile defense, human space flight, and launch systems and services worldwide. The company has a P/E ratio of 23.6, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Boeing as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Holding back the Dow today is Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), which is lagging the broader Dow index with a 12-cent decline (-0.5%) bringing the stock to $23.53. Volume for Intel currently sits at 1.5 million shares traded vs. an average daily trading volume of 32.7 million shares.

The company has a P/E ratio of 12.8, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Intel as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share.
