BAE Systems For Defense, Aerospace, & Security

The Industrials sector includes twenty-three industries all related to designing, fabricating and servicing stuff we want and use. The industrials industries range from aerospace and defense to waste management with all the transportation, business services, and equipment required in between.

Today I'm reviewing a large-cap United Kingdom based aerospace and defense firm.

It's name is BAE Systems Plc.

It's trading ticker symbol is BAESF. This stock has improved its prospects slightly since I last reported on it May 9th.  

BAE Systems PLC. engages in the design, development, manufacture, and support of defense and aerospace systems used in the air, on land, at sea, and in space.

BAE Systems operates in five segments: Electronic Systems; Cyber & Intelligence; Platforms & Services (US); Platforms & Services (UK); Platforms & Services (International).

BAE Systems plc was incorporated in 1979 and is based in London, the United Kingdom.

I use three key data points gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund like BAE Systems plc: 

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

After those three, four more keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest. 

No matter what, it's the first three primary traits that best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money. 


BAE's price was $8.55 per share at yesterday's market close. Last July its price was $7.99 for a gain of $0.56 per share in the past year.  

Assuming BAE's price will continue to trade in the range of $7 to $10 next year, its price could grow another $0.56 from $8.55 to $9.11 by July 6, 2019. 

BAESF Dividends

BAE's most recently declared semi-annual dividend was $0.1846 per share paid June 1st. Their Semi-annual dividend equates to an annual 4.04% yield at yesterday's $8.55 closing stock price.  

Gains For BAE?

BAE's $0.56 estimated year over year price gain plus an anticipated annual dividend of $0.30 makes a projected gross annual gain of $0.86 per share, which will be reduced by the costs to trade those shares.
