Elements to consider before selling or buying Boeing shares

Analysis N°1

This commercial aircraft manufacturer no doubt owes its success to the quality and reputation of its aircrafts. It's therefore necessary to monitor all events likely to influence this data, such as the release of new aircrafts along with incidents such as crashes or major technical problems.

Analysis N°2

While Boeing has only one direct competitor in actual fact, namely the manufacturer Airbus, it's important to keep a close eye on all the important publications and news regarding Boing which will have a direct influence on the share value on the stock market.

Analysis N°3

Of course, it is also important to keep an eye on the company's financial data, by carefully studying its order book and quarterly and annual results.

Analysis N°4

The activities of major global airlines are also prime indicators for trading these shares. Boeing's sales are directly dependent on the financial health of this sector of activity.

Analysis N°5

Finally, of course, it will be important to monitor the Group's dealings with other companies, such as the creation of joint ventures, partnerships or other share buy-outs, with a view to developing its activities and growth.

General presentation of Boeing

Buy Boeing shares

The Boeing company  was established in the United States in 1916. The company was one of the first to produce airplanes internationally. Its main competitors are Airbus, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. Boeing continues to work in the field of civil aviation, military and space aeronautics.

But the success of Boeing as we know it today is also due to the acquisition of two other American companies, Rockwell International and more recently, Mc Donnell Douglas.

Boeing has a total turnover of over 68 billion dollars for a net profit of over 1.3 billion dollars per year. Its activities can be classified into two main categories, namely:

  • Commercial and civil aviation, which represents 60% of the group's turnover.
  • Defense, which represents more than 23% of the company's total turnover (production of helicopters and military aircrafts along with missiles and satellites).

Boeing was first listed on the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) market in 1996, but is also listed on the Euronext Amsterdam market today. Boeing's total market capitalization is over $ 47 billion. Its quotation is taken into account in the calculation of the American S&P 500 index.

The major competitors of Boeing

Due to the specific nature of its activities, the Boeing group does not face much competition. The only manufacturer with which it fights regular battles to win or recover certain important markets is Airbus.

Since the late 1990s, the two groups have been in fierce competition in the field of civil aircraft but also in the field of defense. Boeing is also a direct competitor of the Airbus defense and space subsidiary, which operates in the fields of military aircrafts and launchers.

Apart from Boeing and Airbus, no other company in the aeronautical construction sector has managed to find a place in the major stock markets in the world.

The major partners of Boeing

Whether it be for the supply of aircrafts, their maintenance or the very design of new technologies in this sector, Boeing has forged links with other large international companies and has been able to set up certain strategic partnerships. To help you better understand the challenges of such associations, here are the main current partners of the Boeing group:

Dassault System 

a technology company has signed a partnership with Boeing in order to create various specific digital tools as part of the development of new aircrafts for aviation. The two companies are collaborating in the development of the 7E7 Dreamliner, a revolutionary aircraft.

Air France KLM

The Boeing group is also under contract with Air France KLM a partnership aimed at ensuring the maintenance of the 737 Max aircraft produced by the group.


In 2018, the Safran group joined forces with Boeing in the design, production and services of Auxiliary Power Groups.


More recently, in 2019, it's with the Embraer group that Boeing joined forces aimed at establishing a strategic partnership around the field of commercial jets and the military transport aircraft KC-390.

Positive factors for Boeing shares
The factors in favour of a rise in the Boeing share price:

First of all, the positioning of the Boeing group in its sector of activity is of course one of its main strong points. Indeed, the Boeing group is currently one of the largest groups in the world in the field of aerospace. It is also one of the leading manufacturers of defence, space and security systems and one of the world's largest manufacturers of commercial aircraft.

From a purely financial point of view, the Boeing group also reassures investors through its results. Indeed, over the last few years, the American group has shown a constant and significant increase in turnover. This also applies to its operating result, which has also shown interesting and stable growth. This improvement in the company's results is largely due to the ability to deliver on time the aircraft ordered by Boeing's customers. Indeed, the group is known for ensuring optimal operational efficiency, which of course enables it to increase its revenues and continuously improve its profitability.

Of course, and given the high-technology sector in which Boeing operates, it is above all an innovative group that invests heavily in research and development. The group has thus shown its constant interest in R&D, in particular in engineering, operations and technology activities. Thanks to these numerous investments in research and development, Boeing is able to continuously expand its range of products and services. As a result, it can maintain its position among the leaders in its market.

Finally, it is also interesting to note that Boeing is constantly seeking to expand its range of sustainable products and fuels. By expanding its product range, Boeing can meet all its customers' current and future needs and build long-term customer loyalty. Boeing's strong focus on sustainable fuels also helps to reduce CO2 emissions. This contributes to a better image of the company in the eyes of the general public at this time of environmental concern.

Negative factors for Boeing shares
The factors in favour of a drop in the Boeing share price:

First of all, we can point out the problems the Boeing group has with its workforce. Indeed, Boeing about 38% of the total workforce of this group is supervised by a powerful trade union. However, this union regularly causes employees to stop working. These strikes and other stoppages naturally lead to a significant drop in productivity, which can sometimes result in delivery delays. This, of course, has a direct impact on the quality of Boeing's relations with its major customers.

We also know that the Boeing group depends to a large extent on the contracts it has signed with the American government. In fact, U.S. government contracts account for a large portion of Boeing's overall sales. It is estimated that this represents nearly 30% of the group's annual sales, which is considerable. However, the sustainability over time of these contracts depends on many factors, be they economic, budgetary or simply political. As a result, this dependence on US government decisions can represent a threat to the future and in any case leads to a lack of visibility on results for investors.

Finally, the Boeing group also shows a significant dependence on some of its suppliers, which thus have significant negotiating power. This mainly concerns suppliers of raw materials or integrated components as well as other types of suppliers essential to the group's activities. Suppliers are thus able to negotiate their prices with Boeing, which is often forced to accept their terms and conditions since it needs their products and materials in order to carry out its business and to continue production. This problem naturally leads to production costs that are sometimes difficult to control, which have a direct impact on the group's overall profitability and net income.
