  1. This is a great example of how “proposed” government spending can directly affect prices of stocks in the related industry.

    The Aerospace & Defense industry stocks mentioned in this post could continue to move higher even after the news headline.

    A couple of other stocks in this industry that I like are Dow 30 components.

    Boeing Co (BA) which pays a 3% dividend yield.

    United Technologies (UTX) which pays a 2% dividend yield.

    Both of these 2 stocks are near all time highs which is very bullish.

    Keep up the great work!
