    Boeing bows out of multibillion-dollar Minuteman III replacement competition

    Boeing Co has decided it will not compete as a prime contractor to replace the Pentagon's aging U.S.-based Minuteman III missile system, paving the way for Northrop Grumman Corp to win a contract worth tens of billions of dollars. Friday marked the deadline to submit proposals to continue work on the replacement of the nearly half-century-old intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) system as the military embarks on a costly modernization of its aging atomic weapons. Boeing said in a statement that it was disappointed it was unable to submit a bid.

    Tops for 2020: The 5 Best Industrial Stocks to Buy

    While frequently overlooked, industrial stocks held their own throughout 2019 and appear to be in strong position heading into 2020.The ongoing U.S.-Chinese trade war hasn't exactly been easy for American industrial companies, which on average derive more than a third of their revenues from China, and many of which order supplies from the country as well. Nonetheless, the Industrial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLI) actually boasted slightly better returns than the S&P; 500 year-to-date through Dec. 3. The sector is set up to beat the Street next year, too.Barry Bannister, head of institutional equity strategy at Stifel Nicolaus, suggesting that investors buy into cyclical stocks such as industrials while shedding defensive plays. "Although we see (more than) 5% further for the S&P; 500 into 2020, we see twice that return, or plus 10%, for a long-cyclical/short defensive industry trade in the same period," he writes.Given that industrial stocks still face trade risks, however, investors are (rightfully) seeking out the crème de la crème - those stocks poised to continue outperforming through 2020 and beyond. One way to separate the wheat from the chaff is to focus on the names Wall Street analysts are standing firmly behind.Here are the five best industrial stocks to buy for 2020. We've used TipRanks' Stock Screener to zero in on five industrial-sector companies that are receiving robust support from the Street, earning a "Strong Buy" consensus rating.

    Northrop Grumman lands customer for first OmegA rocket launch in 2021

    Space industry heavyweight Northrop Grumman has signed a customer for the launch of its first OmegA rocket, a medium/heavy-lift launch vehicle that it's currently readying for flight with a target of spring 2021 for its first-ever flight. OmegA will unlock additional payload capacity versus the launch systems that Northrop Grumman has developed and flown previously, with the primary goal of being able to serve the interests of the company's top customers -- defense and national security agencies. OmegA's development has been funded in part through U.S. government contracts, including a $792 million Launch Services Agreement it signed with the U.S. Air Force to finish the rocket's design, as well as to furnish and prepare the launch sites from which it'll take off.
