Boeing expects 2017 revenues of $91.4 billion and earnings of $10.20 a share. In 2018, an expected increase in military contracts may push revenues to $94 billion, and with strong net profit margins of 6.7 percent, earnings may grow to be above the $11 level. Therefore, many on Wall Street expect that today’s $5.68 dividend will be raised to $6.50 next year. Though BA has risen sharply and perhaps a bit too fast this year, please keep this stock.
