Better Buy: Lockheed Martin vs. General Dynamics

Better Buy: Lockheed Martin vs. General Dynamics

The defense budget is nearly $800 billion this year, the most by a country by a wide margin. A chunk of that money goes to companies like Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), which design and build weapons, equipment, and technology for the U.S. and its allies. One of the world's largest aerospace and defense companies, Lockheed Martin has its fingerprints all over the industry.
