Northrop Grumman: Beacon Of Stability In An Unstable World

Earlier this week I wrote a new article on Northrop Grumman for Seeking Alpha.You can check it here! Some people are opposed to investing in military and defense companies like NOC. I am not one of those, because it's not the companies or their products that cause war and turmoil, it's people and their politicians. As an investor you might as well profit and hedge yourself in times of geopolitical tensions.

What do you think?

I am curious to know what you thought of the article. Let me know and drop a comment below or at Seeking Alpha. Thanks!
