Updated on January 5, 2018

Alex has been an investor for years now. He has investments in the stock market, cryptocurrencies, bonds, and the United States Treasury.

First Thing's First

I feel the need to include another short disclaimer. I cannot and will not take responsibility for what others do with their money. I do not claim to know the future, nor am I telling anyone what to do. Stocks are highly speculative, and my forecasts and insights are just that - forecasts and insights - and nothing written in stone (well, maybe on a hard drive, but no Old Testament tablets!). That being said, and out of the way, let's delve into the benefits if investing in the Boeing Company!

Share Values Have Been Going Up

The title says it all. In the last three years, shares in the Boeing Company have increased more than 50% in value! In January of 2015, shares in the company were less than $150.00. As of the beginning of the new year 2018, shares have almost reached a rate of $300 per share!

From the kickoff of 2017 to that year's end, shares in the corporation have gone up well over $100 per share! That is, shares in the Boeing Company nearly doubled in value over the course of a single year. Hopefully, the Boeing Company will be as successful during 2018 as it was during 2017!

Comparisons

Boeing shares' increase was very drastic indeed throughout the year, just as was the growth in the value of shares in a few other notable companies, such as AbbVie, Inc. (from roughly $60 per share in January to practically $100 per share in December). AbbVie, Inc. shares also practically doubled in monetary worth. Shares in businesses like the Kohl's Corporation went up in value during 2017 as well, but the advance was far less drastic.

The Value of Diversifying

It can be important to diversify your portfolio. Here's why; I had invested in multiple companies over the years. Many of those businesses have gown down in value. But, fortunately I have also invested in companies like Boeing - which have increased in value significantly!

Diversity gives one the chance to sell out of companies doing well, if need be, and buying more shares in the businesses which have fallen in value. This may seem self-explanatory to many of you, but many people seem not to understand the value of diversity in various aspects of our lives.

The Boeing Company Pays Dividends

Not only have share prices been going up, but Boeing pays quarterly dividends. The company has been paying out about one dollar per share for some time now. With the apparent success of the business, based on the increase in the company's share value, I would only suspect that dividend payouts will probably continue to increase as well (as they have been). Companies like GoPro, Inc. and Facebook, Inc. have not been giving shareholders any dividends for their shares.

Of course, I feel as though many people who own shares in Facebook might be quite happy right now (as it has been going up even more so than other businesses that I've covered), GoPro shareholders (such as myself) may be very disappointed in the possibly permanent loss of money. Keep in mind, dear readers, that in order to avoid such disappointment - one should have a vested interest in the aggregate of your investments, and not only an interest in potential financial gains.

My Concluding Remarks

Look, I won't tell you to invest in the Boeing Company. I partially state this, because if the business decreases in value over the next years - those valleys of lows just might be the best time to invest. However, the prospects of investing, even now, seem considerably good. Shares and dividends have only been going up in value, so perhaps now is the prime time to invest.

I think that piece of advise which I can give to you with the most confidence is to diversify your investments if you take investing seriously. I personally think it best to play it safe, but those may simply be the words of a man who is approaching his 30's. Whatever you chose to do - be careful! There are no guarantees in investing!

All I do know is that inaction seldom gives birth to the fruits of greater prosperity. Whatever you do chose to do, I will suggest that you eventually do something. Reading my articles is a very good start!

      I like to invest too so I appreciated your analysis. Over the years, Home Depot and Altria have treated me especially well. In the past year, I was lucky enough to hop on the AbbieVie bandwagon early on.

      Diversification is definitely key when investing in stocks. That way the risk is spread all across the board. Stocks do rise and fall in value so not having all ones money in just one stock is a smart approach. All good financial advisors would tout diversification as the way to go. Boeing Company does seem to offer good rewards. We know someone who works for them in Seattle.
