    My friends at Robohub.org are running a week-long series of focused stories about robotics for defense, security and surveillance purposes. In an attempt to add to the conversation, here is a list of some of the companies that produce these types of robotic devices. This list is comprised of publicly-traded stocks in various stock exchanges more »

  • Investing in the Latest Trends in Aerospace

    By Lee Samaha - February 4, 2013 | Tickers: AIR, BEAV, HEI, BA

    I want to take a brief look at some of the trends in the commercial aerospace industry and suggest some stock ideas that could fit in with conclusions reached. Aviation is a cyclical sector, but all cycles are different and I think there are some really interesting geographic and industry-specific trends here. They deserve more attention than just listening to a tv journalist shouting on about Boeing’s (NYSE: BAmore »)

  • How to Play the Aerospace Sector

    By Lee Samaha - December 19, 2012 | Tickers: AIR, BEAV, HEI, BA

    A couple of small cap aerospace companies reported results recently, and I thought it would be interesting to look at them together. Aerospace is a fascinating sector, because the dynamics of the industry are changing and investors need to be very selective.

AAR Corp (NYSE: AIR) had already pre-announced results at the start of the month but when they formally released them the stock was met with a 6% decline and then a 3% rise the next day; this is after raising guidance as well. The results were actually fairly strong, but there was a lot in the more »

  • The Best Play in the Aerospace Sector?

    Every investor has one of these stocks. You know the type. The one where you find something you really like about the stock and then spend years waiting for its evaluation to get into range, or some other part of the company to perform, or some macro clouds to clear or whatever. The upshot is, you never get round to owning the stock. In my case it’s Heico (NYSE: HEImore »)

  • Is it a Case of Jam Today with this Stock?

    By Lee Samaha - July 27, 2012 | Tickers: AIR, AA, GE, TXT

    A stock like General Electric (NYSE: GE) is always going to be seen as a proxy for global GDP growth and I can’t argue with the logic. However, global economies have many moving parts and I think there was good cause to believe that GE was exposed to some of the more favorable trends. The bad news is that while the recent results confirmed some positive end markets, on more »
