Perkins Act that would prioritize existing federal education dollars for career and technical education (CTE) programs. By passing Perkins, Congress can help address this "skills gap" in a lasting way.

General Dynamics' (GD) Stryker Land Vehicle provides the U.S. Army with an effective mix of capabilities, including infantry transport, offensive firepower and reconnaissance.
Since April, Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) stock has been under pressure. Keep in mind that the defense industry has essentially gone out of favor, as seen with the weakness in operators like Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC), Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) and General Dynamics Corporation (NYSE:GD). President Trump’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has resulted in a thawing of relations.
The recent warming of relations between the U.S. and North Korea couldn’t have come at a worse time for Boeing (NYSE:BA). Now, both sectors are heavily challenged due to President Trump’s revamped foreign policy, making BA stock suddenly look risky. Boeing’s reversal of fortune is a reminder just how quickly things can change in the markets.
Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) has been around since 1939. It still has a hand in building the state-of-the-art aircraft that the U.S. military flies today — like the B-1 bomber and its successor, the B-21 Raider. The Raider is expected to cost $550 million and the Department of Defense wants 80-100 of them, a $55 billion deal.

Lockheed Martin's (LMT) F-35 Lightning II aircraft provides advanced stealth, integrated avionics and sensor fusion features.
This column provides a daily update on key presidential actions as well as comments, whether spoken aloud or on Twitter, by President Trump. With a chorus of voices criticizing his administration’s policy of separating undocumented immigrant children from their parents, Trump said that “children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country,” and that Democrats should “give us the votes to fix the world’s worst immigration laws.” He raised the example of Germany, as Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition is threatened by a fight involving migration. Trump also stated that “crime in Germany is way up.” In May, however, the country recorded the lowest crime rate since 1992.
If you thought President Trump was just musing when he publicly broached the subject of a U.S. "space force" in recent months, guess again. On Monday, he disclosed at a meeting of the National Space Council in Washington, D.C. that he is directing the establishment of a sixth military branch to address operations in space. "We are going to have a Space Force.

General Dynamics (GD) is down 2.4% year-to-date and peaked at $230.00 on March 9.
MCLEAN, Va., June 13, 2018-- The U.S. Air Force has awarded Northrop Grumman Corporation a contract to sustain and modify a worldwide network of ground-based radars deemed critical to the success of its ...
To everyone’s surprise the first-ever formal meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and his North Korean counterpart Kim Jong-Un in Singapore was extremely successful. While the eco-political consequence of signing the denuclearization agreement at this historical meeting was a constructive one, hinting at a peace regime across the Korean peninsula, it does not bode well for the U.S. defense industry. Major U.S. defense contractors paid the price, witnessing a sudden downfall in their stocks on Tuesday, since a settlement of the long-standing conflict between these two nations may lower demand for weaponries from these contractors.
