NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Boeing (BA) traded as high as $132.80 before the opening bell Wednesday after the company beat analysts earnings per share estimates by 40 cents earning $2.42. The company upped its full-year guidance, but missed on the revenue line due to an earnings charge related to a fixed-price contract with the U.S. Air Force.
Boeing shares are up 21% over the last 12 months with a 12 month trailing earnings per share ratio at 17.4 and a dividend yield at 2.3%. The stock is down about 5% year to date with the Dow Jones Industrial Average up 3.2%. When I covered the Dow 30 on July 7 the second "crunching the numbers" table showed a semiannual risky level at $132.27.
On July 9 I wrote, "Buy Boeing Shares Following Big Buy Order From Emirates Airlines". In this post I suggested that investors looking to book profiles should consider using a good 'til canceled limit order to sell strength to semiannual and monthly risky levels at $132.27 and $134.22, respectively. With a premarket high at $132.80 the first GTC order would have been triggered.
