Boeing Co reported a 52 percent increase in quarterly profit, helped by a rise in commercial aircraft deliveries, and raised its full-year earnings forecast. Still, that was not enough for the company to beat Wall Street's average revenue estimate. Boeing's shares, which have gained 21 percent in the past year, were down 1 percent at $128.40 premarket on Wednesday. The company said commercial aircraft deliveries rose 7 percent to 181, including 30 Dreamliner jets, in the second quarter ended June 30.
