Oscar Stock #5 – Northrop Grumman (NOC)
In The Hurt Locker, as the war in Iraq rages on, a munitions specialist grows more and more reckless in his job of defusing bombs and protecting
American troops. His supervisor is then forced to balance the need to use the bomb expert’s skills and his need to protect his troops from a
man becoming unhinged. The Iraq drama cleaned up, winning the coveted Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay honors along with a few sound and editing awards.
Protecting U.S. troops from roadside bombs in Iraq is no easy task, but Northrop Grumman (NOC)
is one of the industry leaders in unmanned aircraft and other surveillance gear that ensures soldiers stay out of harm’s way. The company posted
a significant profit and topped forecasts in its recent Q4 report compared to a loss in the same period a year ago — a sign that this defense stock
is gathering momentum.
