What Boeing's Dividend Increase Means for Mutual Fund Investors (BA)

Shauna O'Brien Dec 16, 2014

Aerospace company Boeing announced that it has boosted its quarterly dividend and established a new buyback program. Here’s what this news means for mutual fund investors.

Inside the News

Dividend Increase

Boeing announced a 24.7% dividend increase after the closing bell on Monday. The next quarterly dividend of 91 cents will be paid on March 6 to shareholders of record on February 13. The stock will go ex-dividend on February 11.

The company will be raising its share buyback program to $12 billion. It bought back $6 billion in shares in 2014.

Great Yield, but Underperforming Compared to Airlines

Boeing now has a dividend yield of nearly 3%, but its stock price is down 8.45% YTD, compared to the outperforming airlines this year. Despite the dip this year, BA has a very healthy dividend yield and payout ratio. As long as its business remains strong, there is room for the company to continue boosting its dividend.

This news is great for investors, as it may result in Boeing being a target for dividend-focused mutual funds.
