Many of the defense stocks are in 'bubble' territory, IMHO. However, if a Bush becomes president or VP, I'll go long! Bush's like war, and, hell, Iran is still in existence (sarcasm).

Long-term contratian pick. Current Graham price is $115 (based on $8.77 earnings and $67 book value), compared to current price below $70, so that's a 40% margin of safety. Get a nice $2 dividend every year (2.9% yield) while waiting.

Currently depressed because of military spending cuts in the U.S. and elsewhere, but this won't last forever so it seems like a good opportunity to add this while prices are depressed. Existing aircraft will still need to be maintained and upgraded.

High yield strategy: TMFHighYield says to look for "high dividend payers from the S&P 500 from diverse sectors, relatively low debt, and a history of increasing dividend payments." This is my Industrial Goods pick.

LLL was a well run company with some impressive products and skills in the defense sector.

Now it's a well run company with impressive products and skills in the defense sector AND there's a historically successful activist fund pushing to unlock shareholder value. I'm in!

Relational Investors just reported that it is now the largest shareholder of the defense contractor L-3. I have had success following this activist investor in the past. Most recently when it successfully pushed for the break-up of ITT.

To unlock value, Relational is pushing for a the sale or spin-off of business units that it believes are dragging down L-3's performance. This may include the sale of the company's low-margin, no growth government-services division and its aircraft-maintenance division.

Divesting these businesses would enable L-3 to focus its resources on growing its high-margin businesses, including such as electronic systems and surveillance / intelligence.

Good solid company with good growth rates. I don't really think it going to blow the S&P out of the water but will stay with it.

More flexible a defense stock than most; can make money off of mod'ing legacy systems as well as being part of new ones.
