Boeing Has Come In To Fair Value
There are two primary reasons why I chose Boeing as my stock of the week. First was the fact that it has recently fallen into fair value territory after being overvalued for most of 2013, 2014 and 2015. When reviewing Boeing on F.A.S.T. Graphs™ note that this A rated blue-chip dividend growth stock has quickly moved off of fair valuation very quickly in recent history. Consequently, it’s possible this is also a decent candidate for some short-term gains.
Second, at today’s valuation I really like the current yield in excess of 3 ½%. Although Boeing is not a Dividend Aristocrat, its historical earnings growth rate has been above average. Moreover, during our last two recessions (2001 and 2008) the company did freeze their dividend, but they did not cut it. Therefore, I do think the company offers stable dividend income with the potential for long-term growth and income.
