Analysts Think Boeing Co (BA) Is Ready to Takeoff

Boeing Co (NYSE:BA) is getting the attention of the Wall Street. The company has increased its dividend no less than 14 times over the past 25 years. The stock has a dividend yield of about 2.4%. The company’s civilian aircraft business is rising on the back of skyrocketing travel traffic. According to an estimate, about 7.2 billion passengers are expected to travel in 2035, double the amount recorded in 2016.

Boeing will also benefit from the geopolitical situation in Asia Pacific. President Trump has requested a 10% defense budget hike in 2018, which would result in more defense contracts. Boeing will also be a major benefactor of the upcoming tax cuts program. The stock has already gained about 54% so far this year.

For this year Boeing 's revenue will be around 91,9 billion USD. This is according to the average of the analysts' estimates. This is slightly lower than 2016's revenue of 94,57 billion USD.
