An Israeli company playing in the defense space. He does not dabble in the defense space. It is rather on the small side. He would prefer others in this space. These stocks run counter to the economic cycles.

Israel's largest defensive publicly traded contractor. Largely electronics and are within the mid-cycle of defense spending. The largest producer of drones. They make a "re-drone" system that would have safeguarded Saudi oil facilities as it allows for control to be taken over drones to land them safely. Yield 1.09% (Analysts’ price target is $153.67)

The world's biggest producer of military drones, so there's a big renewal for them now. They're also a big maker of night vision systems, and bought a competitor to reduce this space to only two players. 20-30% of their sales in 2018 were in cyber warfare. (Analysts’ price target is $141.24)

We are still in an up-cycle in defense spending. They have high exposure to Israel, the fastest growing economy in the world. They are a leader in drones and electronic warfare. They completed several acquisitions. They have had good contract announcements recently. (Analysts’ price target is $51399.00)

(Past Top Pick, Aug.14, 2017, Down 6%) He's owned this for five years as a core holding. It's been sideways the past year for some reason, but sometimes that just happens. The last quarter, they had 11% backlog growth and announced a few acquisitions not yet in the numbers.

Has something materially changed in their operations? He is not aware of any changes that could be resulting in the stock declining in value and it trades near all-time highs. Business continues to look good and military defence spending will continue to grow. The founding shareholder holds a lot of the stock. Israeli defence spending continues at a high percentage of GDP. One third of their revenues are in cyber-security.

Israel’s largest publicly traded defence contractor, and primarily involved in electronics. About a 3rd of sales is traditional military electronics, things like radars and software defined radios. About 1/3 sales are cyber, including cyber defence and offensive cyber weapons. Another 3rd are in unmanned systems, primarily unmanned aerial systems, where they are the world’s largest producer with the broadest product line. The average age of the drone is 7-10 years old. If you include only the drones that are used by the militaries outside of the US, the average age is a bit older, so expects there will be an upgrade cycle. On the electronics side, electronics has grown at twice the rate of the defence budget growth. This company is well positioned in terms of the segments it serves.

Also likes Northrop Grumman and Raytheon, but would be careful about doing too much. In the case of Raytheon, part of the moat is that they have their own semiconductor foundry, which has allowed them to win share within radars. If they have a chip no one else has, that extends the power, range and reliability of radar. In the case of Northrop, so much of the backlog became classified that they were forced to classify the entire backlog. This is helpful, because classified backlog is the best thing to look for, for future growth. It is very well positioned in space. The Minuteman missiles are quite old and are going to be modernized.

Israel’s largest publicly traded defence contractor. It is divided into 3 segments. One third is being the largest drone producer globally with the broadest product line. The average drone is military and about 7 years old, and thinks they are going to get replaced. A second third is traditional defence electronics such as fire control systems. The final third is their cyber division which includes both offensive and defensive cyber which national security agents may need to deal with terrorist threats. Dividend yield of 1.3%. (Analysts’ price target is ILS 337.00.)
