Boeing Boosts Dividend for First Time Since 2008

Monday, 12 Dec 2011 04:10 PM

Boeing Co. raised its quarterly dividend 4.8 percent to 44 cents a share, the first increase since 2008 at the world’s largest aerospace company.

The dividend will be payable on March 2 to shareholders of record as of Feb. 10, Boeing said Monday in a statement. The previous amount was 42 cents a share. A Bloomberg projection called for a new total of 45 cents.

Boeing’s last increase was announced Dec. 15, 2008, when the Chicago-based planemaker raised the amount to 42 cents a share from 40 cents, payable in March 2009. Boeing had struggled since then with delays in its 787 Dreamliner and 747-8 jumbo jet, which entered commercial service this year.

Monday’s move came after Morgan Stanley boosted its rating on Boeing to “overweight” from “equal weight.” Boeing fell 1.9 percent to $70.59 at 3:28 p.m. in New York as broad U.S. indexes slumped.
