4 Defense Stocks Putting Investors on Offense

May 01, 2019 - By: Baystreet Staff


It’s crazy to think but one sector that seems to be “flying under the radar” is the defense sector. In fact, the iShares U.S. Aerospace & Defense ETF (ITA) has been on an upward move since the end of March 2019. With shares of this sector's stocks continuing to remain in lockstep with the overall market uptrend, investors are finding new opportunities with both old and new names.

Today we are highlighting: Liberty Defense Holdings (SCAN.V), Patriot One Technologies Inc. (PAT.V) (PTOTF), The Boeing Company (BA), Raytheon Company (RTN)

Liberty Defense Holdings (SCAN.V(Market Cap: $58.649M) is a newer entrant to the defense industry on the public level.  The company focuses on the detection of concealed weapons. What investors are starting to recognize is that (SCAN.V) has already secured an exclusive license from MIT Lincoln Laboratory, as well as a technology transfer agreement, for patents related to active 3D imaging technology. These are packaged into its HEXWAVE product.

Most recently the company signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to beta test its HEXWAVE product with Toney Sleiman of Sleiman Enterprises. Toney Sleiman is President of Sleiman Enterprises, one of Florida's largest privately held real estate companies. The company develops and manages more than 150 shopping centers throughout Southeast Georgia with a footprint of over 5 million square feet of retail space.

"Malls welcome hundreds - if not thousands - of visitors daily, including children and families. These are public spaces that face a security challenge with high volumes of foot traffic and multiple entry points," said Bill Riker, Liberty's CEO. "By providing a security solution that is modular, scalable, and capable of providing layered protection to identify threats before they evolve into an attack, we believe that we can make these spaces safer for patrons and merchants alike."

Liberty also has a memorandum of understanding with the Vancouver Arena Limited Partnership, which hosts events such as NHL hockey games and most of the largest concerts and shows in Vancouver. Since going public, shares of (SCAN.V) have traded as high as $0.97.

Patriot One Technologies Inc. (PAT.V) (PTOTF) (Market Cap: $223.688M) has seen its shares rebound from lows of $1.52 this week.  At Wednesday’s market open, Patriot One saw a rally to highs of $1.61. What has helped drive additional attention to the company was its most recent news.

Patriot One received final approval to graduate its listing from the TSX Venture Exchange to the Toronto Stock Exchange. “The entire team at Patriot One is thrilled to have finalized our graduation to the prestigious TSX main board,” expressed Martin CEO & President of Patriot One. “Since our launch on the TSX-V in November 2016, we’ve had several major successes that have contributed to this graduation, as we have shared these past two and a half years... 2019 is truly shaping up to be a stellar year for the Company and we are honored to be joining some of Canada’s great household name companies on the TSX.”

Similar to Liberty Defense, Patriot One focuses on threat detection solutions. Its PATSCAN™ Multi-Sensor Covert Threat Detection Platform provides a network of sensor technologies that utilize AI/machine learning software.

The Boeing Company (BA) (Market Cap: $213.083B) has been on a slower but steady climb since hitting lows of $362.92 back in April. Last week the company reported earnings. Boeing saw revenue increase to $6.6 billion, which was a 2% increase compared to the same period last year. According to its release, this was primarily driven by higher volume across satellites, weapons, and surveillance aircraft. First-quarter operating margin increased to 12.8% reflecting a gain on sale of the property.

Raytheon Company (RTN) (Market Cap: $50.318B) also reported earnings within the last week. Though Wall Street didn’t take too much liking to the results, shares of the company have begun to climb back this week.  On May 1, shares traded as high as $180.83. Raytheon Company recently announced that it will deliver new troposcatter communication systems to the U.S. Army as part of a 10-year, indefinite-delivery, indefinite quantity contract worth up to $663 million to ensure troops have access to secure voice and data communications in contested environments.

"Soldiers on the front lines can't afford dropped calls," said Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information, and Services. "Our solution, a secure, reliable and wireless troposcatter system, allows troops to communicate in areas that would otherwise be dead zones. Importantly, it also gives the military a way to communicate in satellite-denied environments.”
