Defense & Aerospace Sector Stocks primed for next move!
You would think with he current Woe’s of Boeing (BA) that the Defense & Aerospace Sector would be struggling at the moment. The Dow upward movement may have been stifled in the last few weeks due to BA. But this pull back in the Defence & Aerospace sector has lots of Defense Stocks ready to move higher on an Elliott 5th Wave Move.
$XAR, which tracks an equal-weighted index of US aerospace & defense companies has already started its 5th Wave move. The $XAR Chart below on the Weekly time-frame show the move really got started January 2019. The “BA Pullback” was a slight blip, but quickly formed a higher support level. Our Automated target zone in our Elliott Wave Indicator Suite is now showing a 5th Wave target of $110 for this ETF.
So this longer term view should give investors confidence that stocks in this Defense & Aerospace Sector have more room to grow this year.
Lockheed Martin (LMT)
Let me discuss just a couple of examples in the Defense & Aerospace sector. Firstly, Lockheed Martin’s F-35 production will be ramped up soon with spending not just from the US. BUT from the UK as it has two Brand new Aircraft carriers to fill and a Retired Tornado fleet to replace.
I am already long on $LMT at $300.55 by trading an Elliott Wave, 5th Wave move on the Daily Time-Frame. Our automated target zone giving a potential price of around $318 for this current move. A 2:1 Reward to Risk. The chart below shows the entry, stop and target levels.
This is a great example of using Sector ETF’s, basic fundamentals and combining with sensible technical indicators.
Axon Enterprise Inc (AAXN)
Axon Enterprise Inc is a favourite growth stock in the Defense & Aerospace sector with inclusion in many ETFs. This company, formally known as TASER International is totally different to LMT. The company manufactures security systems for law enforcement and military worldwide. Its share price is up 250% in less than a year and has more room to grow to our $90 target price.
The chart below shows our entry at $55.48 on this potential Elliott 5th Wave move on the Weekly Time-Frame. Our automated 5th wave target zone is giving our $90 price target. This target price could be as much as 25 weeks away, so a longer-term investment. With the recent close at $60.32, there is still chance to get in this high growth stock.
