Check out this story at CNN; The US is running out of bombs to drop on ISIS.
Whee-haaa!!! That can only be good news if you're fortunate enough to hold Raytheon and/or Lockheed Martin in your portfolio!
Back in 2000, in the pre-9/11 era, shares in either of these companies could be had for less than twenty bucks. Post 9/11, as America lurched from one foreign policy debacle to the next in Afghanistan and Iraq and Libya and Syria, those share prices have soared into the great blue yonder!
Raytheon closed at $124 yesterday - and that's before CNN reported the bomb shortage!
Lockheed Martin is well over two hundred dollars per share.
As the horizon darkens for humanity, the prospects for the bomb-builders just keep getting brighter!
So next time some pinko whiner pesters you about the bleak outlook for the US economy, just refer them to this story!
