The firm's picks for the quarter were in medtech, defense and oil

The merger also comes with spinoffs of Carrier and Otis

On April 3, Raytheon (RTN) and United Technologies (UTX) successfully closed their merger after clearing the last regulatory hurdles the previous week. The merger will create a defense behemoth that generated $74 billion in revenues during 2019. The new company will be named Raytheon Technologies and will begin trading on April 3 under the stock symbol RTX.

Preceding the merger, United Technologies spun off its HVAC division Carrier (CARR) and its elevator division Otis (OTIS) into separate companies, both of which have been added to the S&P 500.

In order to clear the last holdup from the U.S. government, Raytheon

Northrop Grumman has performed much better than its peers in 2020, but the stock offers a low yield and has a mediocre outlook

With markets in free fall due to the economic impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), investors have few places to hide. Many investors are piling into Treasury bills or looking for safety in the more usual recession proof names like utilities, healthcare and consumer staples stocks.

In my opinion, one sector investors with a long-term horizon should consider is the aerospace and defense sector. This group has lost nearly 46% year-to-date. For comparison purposes, the S&P 500 has lost approximately 29%. As I wrote in a recent article on Raytheon Company (RTN), this sector has a tremendous amount going

Along with the rest of the aerospace and defense sector, Raytheon has taken a beating over the past several weeks. Still, there is a lot to like about the sector

The past several years has seen some impressive returns for the Aerospace & Defense ETF (ITA). Last year alone saw the sector exchange-traded fund return nearly 32%, topping the return for the S&P 500. How quickly things have changed as the recent decline in markets has taken no prisoners. The ETF is down more the 46% for 2020, a stark reminder that even market darlings can be crushed during a panic. The S&P 500 has performed much better, “only” losing 29% year to date.

One aerospace and defense name that I have long liked is Raytheon Co. (RTN). I have

Comcast tops the list

The following stocks do not appear to be expensive, so investors looking for value opportunities may want to consider them.

The following four aspects characterize these stocks.

First, their earnings are trading for less than 20 times their price. Second, their history of earnings and sales generation is consistent. Third, they have not supported net losses in the last five years. Fourth, they saw the top and the bottom lines posting average growth rates.

Also, Wall Street sell-side analysts have recommended positive ratings for these stocks.


The first stock under consideration is Comcast Corp. (CMCSA).

This Dividend Aristocrat has raised its dividend at a highly consistent rate over the last decade. The company also benefits from increased defense spending

With the S&P 500 trading with an average price-earnings ratio of more than 24, it can be difficult to find stocks trading at an attractive valuation. At the same time, the 1.8% average yield on the index doesn’t offer much in the way of income.

There are some stocks that offer solid growth prospects, a higher yield and a long history of dividend growth all while trading with a reasonable valuation. One company that I feel checks all of these boxes is General Dynamics Corp. (GD). I feel so strongly about the future of this company (and its ability to

Discussion of markets and holdings

We continue to see corrective price action in many industries since the market highs of January 2018. The global transportation, materials, agriculture and manufacturing industries are a few discounting a recession. Europe, Japan, China and emerging markets have been weak on trade tensions, political uncertainties of Brexit and historic lows in many commodities (many under cost of production). In the US, a continued expansion in labor markets, resilient consumer spending and a stable service sector are positives for the domestic economy. Homebuilder order growth has accelerated with the recent drop in mortgage rates. According to Standard and Poor’s, the spread
