I know I’ve gotten away from it for a while, but I’d like to go back to analyzing multiple companies within one industry, then post a comparison chart of all the important data. For the next few weeks, I’ll be jumping into the defense industry, and looking at a few strong, dividend paying companies.

I’m looking forward to this!
I’ve been interested in a few stocks here including Raytheon, L-3, and General Dynamics. Lockheed looks interesting with the big yield, but the high price/book and debt is concerning.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
I’m personally wary of getting near defense stocks right now. Everything I see from where I stand in Afghanistan points to a contraction in defense spending. I’m always willing to listen to a differing opinion though and Raytheon has crossed my mind more than once.
That’s definitely a worry for any defense stock – if the government continues with austerity, there is a good chance these companies will feel it on their income statements.
