[Policy] More Budget on Defense

New Budget Today President Bush is sending Congress $2.7 trillion budget which gives huge boost in defense and homeland security spending. If the new budget plan does pass through then we should see many defense stocks benefiting from it.

Let's take a look at some of the major company in the the defense industry:

  • General Dynamics(GD): the Falls Church, VA based company makes combat system for army and marine.
