Defense & Aerospace Funds?
« on: September 03, 2017, 04:54:42 PM »

Why didn't you buy in four years ago?

The MCSI index would have been the one to buy, not the managed fund.

Bought RTN six years ago, at a time when the market was truly believing that the United States government would stop buying weapons.
