(A Top Pick Jul 02/19, Up 1%) He still owns this and likes the defense sector. They have a $144 billion in back log orders and that will continue to grow. He thinks global defense spending will continue to grow. Aircraft and missile spending continues to grow. Operations a creating $23 billion of cash in the next three years. This allows for M&A and for dividend growth. It trades at 14 times earnings -- not expensive. Yield 3.2%

In a sweet spot, as defence spending will go up. Pressure to increase payments to NATO. LMT's suite of products is what people need, and this is where spending will go.

LMT vs. MA Both have done well recently. MA is warning it's being affected by coronavirus. Both really good businesses. LMT can be affected by the election. If Trump gets back in, LMT will probably do pretty well. Buy LMT on weakness. For MA, it's been on a rocket for the last 5 years, and it's breaking a bit here with the warning and technical selling. So he'd wait on it, but long-term it's a good business.

Trades at 16x, with a 9% growth rate. Not bad, but he'd look at some other names. Chart moved down to 200-day moving average, which might provide support. Election later this year may bring volatility and uncertainty.

The defence industry has performed well in the past year, but he prefers Raytheon/UTX (see past picks and Raytheon). LMT's problem is the fighter jet program's huge cost overruns as well as the American government's belligerence towards its trading partners.

Defence will continue to do well given rising defence spending in American and globally. LMT has a great aircraft modernization business and missile defence business. They enjoy better topline growth vs. peers. Free cash flow growth will allow acquisitions. Defence companies will do well in the coming years. (Analysts’ price target is $409.05)

He has owned LMT for a long time as a play into aerospace defense stocks. There are countless sector charts that look like this, testing support and now surging again. The stock looks great here.

18.4x PE, so not badly overvalued, but he's not chasing it either. The price has run up. Uncertainty will creep into this stock. LMT is recession-proof, and geopolitics have in fact helped LMT. But he's reluctant to step in.

Defence industry is a good place to be. Good momentum. Defence spending increasing. Great projects coming through. Not a high multiple. One of the better players in the market right now. Great company. He'd buy it at these levels. Cost-cutting will produce leverage in next little while.

He has recommended defense stocks for years. He would rather buy Lockheed instead of Raytheon. The aerospace and defensive sector will be strong.

(A Top Pick May 10/19, Up 7%) Industrials are negative in the summer, but segments of it do well including LMT. April 11-August 28 is seasonality. Too late to take advantage of this though, so don't chase it now.

This is another summer defensive play. April - August is the optimal time to own. Tends to move higher when the market is very volatile. Not as prone to pressure as some of the other political footballs. Yield is 2.58%. (Analysts’ price target is $366.74)

Not a bad name, and he likes aerospace/defence. Also, geopolitical tensions remain in the world (i.e. North Korea and Russia). LMT is good, but you can also look at Raytheon which focuses on cyber and missile defence; also have heavy international exposure. Also look at the ITA ETF.
