The nation may be fighting a $16 trillion deficit, but Romney says cutting military spending is just not an option to curb the growing debt.
Republicans have historically been more favorable toward defense spending, and analysts expect shares of companies like Boeing (Fortune 500), , General Dynamics (Fortune 500), , Raytheon (Fortune 500), and , Rockwell Collins (Fortune 500) to surge on a Romney victory. ,
"I wouldn't argue that Obama would be bad for the defense sector, especially over the long-term, because I don't think any president is really going to shift from the U.S. defense hegemony," said Carter Leake, senior equity analyst for the aerospace and defense sectors at BB&T Capital Markets. "But if Romney wins, I would expect a bigger, more aggressive and immediate pop for defense stocks."
The presidential election is less than two months away, and the race is tight. But if you think President Obama will be re-elected, consider investing in these five sectors.
