Is Boeing under- or over-valued?
Valuing Boeing stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Boeing's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Boeing's PEG ratio
Boeing's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.5305. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Boeing's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
|Revenue TTM||$61.4 billion|
|Gross profit TTM||$5.2 billion|

Boeing's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Boeing.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Boeing's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 41.15
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Boeing's overall score of 41.15 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 86th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Boeing is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Boeing's environmental score
Environmental score: 12.02/100
Boeing's environmental score of 12.02 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Boeing is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Boeing's social score
Social score: 22.37/100
Boeing's social score of 22.37 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Boeing is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Boeing's governance score
Governance score: 11.76/100
Boeing's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Boeing is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Boeing's controversy score
Controversy score: 4/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Boeing scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that Boeing has a damaged public profile.
Boeing share dividends
We're not expecting Boeing to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Boeing's shares ever split?
Boeing's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 June 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Boeing shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Boeing shares which in turn could have impacted Boeing's share price.
Boeing share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Boeing's shares have ranged in value from as little as $113.02 up to $229.67. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Boeing's is 1.4989. This would suggest that Boeing's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
