Boeing stock (NYSE: BA) is up 19% in a month, while it’s up 2% over the last twelve months, outperforming the broader markets, with the S&P500 index down 17%. Last month, United Airlines placed a large order of one hundred 787 Dreamliners with an option to buy one hundred more. The deal value will likely be over $30 billion. [1] There are also reports of Air India being close to signing a large order of over 200 aircraft with Boeing. [2] Besides the expected rise in orders, Boeing stock also benefits from a rise in deliveries. It delivered 48 airplanes in November, compared to just 35 in October. Some Wall Street analysts have also raised their price targets for BA, bolstering its stock price growth.

Now that BA stock has seen a rise of 19% in a month, will it continue its upward trajectory, or is a fall imminent? Going by historical performance, there is a lower chance of a rise for BA stock over the next month. A move of 19% in a month has occurred 84 times in the past ten years. Of those 84 instances, only 38 resulted in BA stock rising over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days). This historical pattern reflects 38 out of 84, or about a 45% chance of a rise in BA stock over the next month. See our analysis of Boeing’s Stock Chance of Rise for more details.
