    Does anybody have a basic strategy for when to buy this? I'm assuming it's heavily dependent on politics, budgets, etc., Seems like smart sector to be in, but I'm trying to gauge an appropriate entry point and how and when politics will make this thing move. Much appreciated.

    I was a buyer today at $199. I believe the defense sector is undervalued.

    Another 52 week high today at $194.30. ROBO is another ETF that compliments ITA. Both are outstanding companies on an upwards trend.

    Boeing has scored a major contract to build new MQ-25A Stingray drones for the U.S. Navy that will fly from aircraft carriers to refuel combat jets. It beat out Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) and General Atomics to secure an initial $805M contract to build the first four Stingrays, but there are plans for an additional 72 of the drones for a total program cost of about $13B. The win could give Boeing (NYSE:BA) an advantage in developing future unmanned systems for the military.

    Japan's defense ministry is requesting its biggest budget increase in five years at 5.3T yen ($48B). A large chunk of the spend is for Lockheed Martin's (LMT) Aegis Ashore ballistic missile defense system to shield the entire Japanese archipelago. Besides threats from North Korea, Japan has come under pressure to buy more military equipment from the U.S., which defends Japan under a postwar security pact and stations some 54K military personnel there.

    This fund is bs...the holdings are not representing a true etf. IMO. Billions of dollars of arms sales to combat China and not even a bump.

    A simple question, what happens in case of split ? I got 30 actions at 191 each one, and now I still have 30 actions at only 96 each one ?. Is it normal ? I lost half of the value ? The bank told me this, but here I see than they have give me instead more actions.
    Thanks for answer.

    What BA is losing on military bids, LMT will gain so very little change will show. If this Iran situation escalates I'm sure glad Liz, Bernie, Uncle Joe, or Obama are not in charge. What Trump did was correct. This Iranian General was the cause of thousands of American military and American contractors losing their lives.
    Bullish

    Yahoo is sure screwed up.....They report ITA as down -1.55 yet by simple subtraction it is down only -.26. They have not reported this correctly for several weeks? What is going on?

    A good steady upwards trend today. Looks like investors added to shares or entered for the first time.

    too concentrated in stocks going no where until maybe second 1/2 next year.

    all about aviation and covid, both bad headlines.

    ITA keeps me and my friends safe. I really love watching fighter jets flying in the air from my cat tower. ITA has really cool stuff like ships and tanks and rocket launchers. Thank you military for keeping me safe during my naps!
