The leaves are changing and it’s time to wear a sweater. That’s right, everyone! Fall’s here and there’s nothing better than sitting in your backyard, enjoying the crisp air, while sipping on a pumpkin spice latte.
Wait, there is one thing better!
That’s seeing your investment accounts grow by buying stocks of defense industry contractors that profit due to their vital role in America’s cruel, imperialistic actions abroad. Let’s sprinkle some of that sweet pumpkin spice to your portfolio with these hot buys!
Northrop Grumman (NOC)
Millions of Americans spend their Sunday afternoons screaming at their TV sets as pro football returns. But do you know what the estimated 28.5 million citizens of Yemen yell about? It’s because they’re once again being attacked by Northrop Grumman’s X-47B drone, which has been used by the US military to slaughter innocent wedding attendees who have no role in America’s latest undeclared war. With a market cap of over $50 billion, Northrop Grumman’s stock price has a TON of upside as the military-industrial complex continues to dictate America’s foreign policy.
Lockheed Martin (LMT)
You don’t have to keep it a secret! You love the Gilmore Girls — a show that seemingly only took place in the fall months! Taking place in fictional Stars Hollow, Connecticut, the award winning Gilmore Girls chronicles the lives and adventures of strong-willed Lorelei Gilmore and her precariously brilliant daughter Rory. Also located in the Nutmeg State is Lockheed Martin’s Sikorsky business unit, which manufactures the famed Sikorsky UH-Black Hawk that played a prominent role in a misguided 1993 attack in Mogadishu, Somalia. Profiled in the hit film Black Hawk Down, the incident caused the death of 19 US soldiers while also emboldening the global jihadist movement. But Lockheed has since shaken off that incident and today continues to make aircraft and advanced weaponry used to advance America’s infinite neocolonialist impulses.
Halloween is the time of year to hide under a blanket while watching horror movies. But do you know what should also keep you awake at night? The existentialist threat presented by the global hypersonic missiles arms race. With an ability to travel thousands of miles at 15 times the speed of sound paired with stunning pinpoint accuracy, hypersonic missiles are a form of high-tech lethality that mankind can only begin to wrap its brain around. It’s now literally possible for the American war machine to destroy a struggling, third-world nation that provides no direct threat to our shores nor interests within seconds. Defense contractor Raytheon is the leader in hypersonic missile production, making it a must-have for any investor with a short-term time horizon considering that misuse of this technology could literally cause the end of human existence.
