Stocks soared to record highs, fueled by earnings from Facebook, Boeing and Verizon, a go-slow Fed and soaring oil prices. But techs retreated late in the week.
Boeing Co (NYSE:BA) stockholders have had a first-class ride for quite some time, enjoying 54% year-to-date gains in BA stock, compared with the 8% rise in the S&P 500 index. The Chicago-based jet maker has not been known as a high-flyer, but BA stock has benefited from the company’s strong balance sheet and rising cash flow, which provides the stability investors crave — particularly in an overheated market. Combined with the company’s solid dividend yield of 2.4%, you would be hard-pressed to find a more stable Dow Jones stock.
The Dow outperformed the two other benchmarks to close at a record high riding on a rally in shares of Boeing and Verizon.
