  • One of the Best Stocks to Buy Now as Defense Spending Soars

  • A Double-Digit Profit Play for the Upcoming Defense "Supercycle"

    A rogue nation and its cartoonish, unpredictable leader fire two ballistic missiles towards its rival neighbor, a vital American ally. Then the nation claims to have detonated its most powerful atomic bomb ever, which it says will fit nicely on a warhead fitted to those ballistic missiles.

    A strongman in charge of a world power decides to invade a sovereign country to "reunite" half its territory with the mother country – twice, and both times during the Olympic Games.

    Unfortunately, as we all know, these events weren't lifted from the plot of a spy novel.

    They're actually happening in the world today. Border wars, frozen conflicts, and saber rattling in the South China Sea, Ukraine, the Russian Caucasus, the Korean peninsula, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia don't show any signs of letting up.

    A global economy lurching toward recession, bad planning, and poor leadership across the globe don't help international tensions, either. 

    But this is precisely the kind of environment lucrative defense stocks thrive in.

    In fact, nervous nations with deep pockets are propelling the entire defense sector into a "supercycle" that could be good for steady gains for the next 20 years.

    And it doesn't matter who wins in November, either...

  • One Billion Reasons Why This Company Is Good for Another 100% Profit

    Delta Air Lines executives and the mainstream media are looking at Aug. 8's catastrophic systems failure as an equipment outage, which would be great if that's all it truly turns out to be.

    Only problem is… I don't believe in coincidences.

    Today's airlines – like many critical systems we live with daily – depend on complicated, overlapping, and exceptionally large amounts of data so critical that even the smallest snafu has global implications.

    That makes them susceptible to, well, everything.

    There's no doubt in my mind that two-bit cyber terrorists around the world are watching the situation very carefully – and learning from it. And that means, in turn, that preventing more Delta-like situations is a high priority.

    One company I'm tracking stands to make billions by doing something unique.

    I think the stock doubles as a result... again...

  • This Defense Tech Play Is Scorching the Market

    After decades of working with defense technology companies, I know the ebb and flow of military spending all too well.

    I remember that when the Cold War came to an end, the nation's political leaders were talking enthusiastically about the so-called "peace dividend."

    That's Washington-speak for Pentagon budget cuts that always seem to come after a major conflict has ended.

    Many investors believe that with our presence in Iraq largely gone, defense firms will offer mediocre returns at best.

    I'm not buying into it. I think massive profit opportunities are there. And the market and the government are lining up behind them…
