Gencorp manufactures defense systems that include tactical missiles and precision-strike missiles. With the international war on terror just beginning and Gencorp trading near its 52-week low, the stock makes an interesting play here, offering inventors a company that generates total revenue of $668 million a year with 15% quarterly revenue growth. It also handily beat earnings estimates last quarter by 15 cents.

Gencorp, the parent company of Aerojet, enjoyed much stronger revenue from its space and defense programs, including the Orion, Standard Missile and Titan, which could result in a huge contract. It's also a possible takeover target for the likes of Boeing (BA - Cramer's Take - Stockpickr - Rating) or Lockheed Martin (LMT - Cramer's Take - Stockpickr - Rating).
