    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.

    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.

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

    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?

    I used to be in the market but unfortunately my negativity kept me out. Formerly I used Ameritrade as my brokerage. I would like to get back in and buy this ETF among some others like DXJ, RSX, etc. Any opinions these days what is a good brokerage to use? AMTD ? etc.

    Hey Yahoo! When are you going to fix the price gain/loss issue with ITA? It currently shows a gain of $4.81, but in reality it is only $0.84.

    Oct $220 Calls are cheap and with pending China deal, this is a great educated bet! Also since ITA has just come down from $218 to $197 its a great time to purchase IMO.
