Boeing’s 1-year capital gain stands at -0.23%, falling within the lower 36.84% sector percentile ranking. Furthermore, its 5-year revenue growth is at -28.68%, ranking in the disappointing 25.81% sector percentile.

Moreover, the company’s profitability ratios point towards a weak financial performance, with a Return on Assets (RO) of just 0.46%. The company’s high Debt Equity Ratio of -326.2% compounds these concerns. Additionally, indicators such as a high Price to Earnings Ratio of 16.59 and a low Price to Cash Flow Ratio of 37.02 suggest that the stock may currently be overvalued.

 

Conclusion:

Despite Boeing’s (BA: NYE) assurances of overcoming the challenges posed by program delays and supply chain disruptions, and its reaffirmed production targets for 2023, the critical obstacles it faces remain significant.
