Q: There seems to be a lot of sabre rattling (more global/political than hockey at the moment), so I would like your thoughts on growth at the four companies mentioned i.e., RTX, LMT, NOC, LDOS?
BTW,I don’t know how long I have been a member (I think membership lapsed once for a few days) but it must be at least 10 years (is that possible?). The service you offer is unmatched and it gives DIYers like me the ability to act with confidence.
Also, I keep finding new things on your web site. Hats off your IT staff as well!.

Q: Hello Folks:
Currently we own CMI and NOC however have in the past also owned DEERE and CAT.

We have owned NOC for a couple of years and it never comes close to meeting expectations; while the other three have done well.

What do you think of swapping NOC for DEERE as there is heavy demand for farm equipment this year because of high crop prices (particularly U.S.).

How would you rank these four companies and do you feel there are other better large cap U.S. company choices in this sector?

Thanks again for this wonderful service

Q: A number of years ago I did some due diligence on NOC and have successfully owned it at times since then. The stock had a bit of a pop this spring but has been going sideways in recent months. If I was a technician I might think it was consolidating or building a base. The company could benefit from US stimulus or it might be impacted by supply chain issues.
I would appreciate your thoughts on the company's prospects going into it's next earnings report in late October.
Thanks for your insights.

The companies that I'm looking at right now include LMT, NOC, RTX, GM, BA, HON. Are there other companies I should also be looking at?
Could you please rank the listed companies in order of preference?

Thank you for all that you do!

Q: Hello Folks:
For a number of years I was a satisfied Boeing shareholder, but switched to NOC and RTX when Boeing's problems surfaced (taking a $100.00 hit), subsequently investing in NOC and RTX.
As of today, how would you view and compare these companies potential; I do regret not re-purchasing BA when it was down as it is a strong contender in the industry, however do have companies such as GE in my rear view mirror.

Thanks so much for your good service

Q: What is your opinion of Maxar Technologies. With the current interest in everything `space'. Maxr has a pretty decent P/S and P/E ratio.
ARK funds are also launching a new fund ARKX focused on `Space exploration companies'. Could you suggest which companies would be included in that EFT ?
lastly. SPCE has seen an absurd jump these last 2 days. Is this due to the ARK ETF or REDIT crowd jumping in and causing a short sqeeze.
Thanks and Have a wonderful day. !
