T = Trends for a Stock’s Movement

Boeing is an aerospace company. It focuses primarily on engineering, information technology, research and development, test and evaluation, technology strategy development, environmental remediation management, and intellectual property management. The company operates in five segments: Commercial Airplanes, Boeing Military Aircraft, Network & Space Systems, Global Services & Support, and Boeing Capital Corp.

Boeing said on Thursday it will end the traditional pension plans for about 68,000 nonunion employees in 2016 and transition them to a company-funded defined contribution retirement savings plan. Boeing employees, including managers and executives, who participate in the main Boeing and subsidiary defined benefit pension plans are affected by the change. Starting January 1, 2016, the Chicago-based company will make cash contributions each pay period through a new component of the 401(k) plan. When they retire, employees will receive all benefits earned in the current traditional pension plan prior to the transition, and Boeing said it will continue to match employee savings in an existing 401(k) plan.
