That amount matches both of the firm's previous two distributions, the most recent of which was paid earlier this month. Prior to that, Boeing handed out $0.44 per share. The company is a regular dividend payer, and has steadily lifted that distribution over the years. Since 2000, it has risen from $0.14 per share to the current level.
The just-declared dividend annualizes to $1.94 per share. That yields just under 2% at Boeing's current stock price of $98.50.
