Those of you who follow the Aerospace/Defense stocks (aka: weapons manufacturers, or Military Industrial Complex…MIC) know how well they’ve done…especially in the last year.
Here’s a short list:
Raytheon (RTN) up 41%
Northrup Grumman (NRC) up 47%
Lockheed Martin (LMT) up 25%
Rockwell Automation (ROK) up 19%
Boeing (BA) up an astonishing 80%
General Dynamics (GD) up 17%
The numbers are impressive. And, if all you did last year was buy that group of stocks, you’d look like a genius.
At the same time, you’d be supporting most of the legal and illegal arms dealers in the world.
It’s a troubling thought, isn’t it?
Please don’t misunderstand me here. I’m not condemning anyone for investing in these stocks. And if history is consistent (which it is) the trend for this group remains upward.
In fact, there’s a lot of upside here because of the increasing threat of war. You see, our politicians NEED constant wars to keep the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) happy. Not only does the sale of weapons generate massive profits for the MIC, it’s a funnel for keeping arms dealers in business.
It’s also where they hide Trillions of missing dollars.
The numbers sound crazy but since 9/11, the Pentagon has supposedly lost track of $29 Trillion. (Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development, spoke about it HERE).
The big questions are:
How can you lose $29 Trillion when the entire money supply (M3) of the US is about $14 Trillion?
How can the Pentagon lose $29 Trillion and Banks mysteriously gain $21 Trillion?
Enquiring minds want to know.
All modern-day wars are about Money…and you can bet the banksters are behind this as well.
