BAE Systems Protects Us All From Everybody Else

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 British-based Aerospace & Defense Industrials firm operating as a defense, aerospace, and security company worldwide

The company's name is BAE Systems plc. It's trading ticker symbol is BAESF

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 Systems's price was $8.32 per share at yesterday's market close. A year ago its price was $8.15 for a gain of $0.17 per share in the past year.  

Assuming BAESF's price will trade in the range of $7.00 to $9.00 next year, its price could grow another $0.17 from $8.32 to $8.49 by early May 2019. 

BAESF Dividends

BAE Systems's most recent variable semi-annual dividend was $0.185 per share declared in February and payable June 1st. A $0.30  total annual dividend for 2018 yields 3.6% at yesterday's $8.32  stock price.
