Aerospace and Defense Stocks

There are several dozen defense companies so we have separated these companies by market capitalization to help investors and traders shorten their research time. A full list of publicly traded defense companies can be found by scrolling down or you can access a list of the companies in each market capitalization group through the industry links on this page.

Aerospace and Defense: Some of the larger companies in this section are well-known aerospace and defense companies including:

Boeing Company (The) (BA)

General Dynamics Corporation (GD)

Honeywell International Inc. (HON)

Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. (HII)

L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc. (LLL)

Lockheed Martin Corporation (LMT)

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NOC)

Raytheon Company (RTN)

Rockwell Collins, Inc. (COL)

Aerospace: We also have separate sections for aerospace companies that manufacture components, parts, systems and other products. Examples of these products can include automated test systems, filtration and fluid control products, aircraft cabin seating, oxygen systems, water and waste systems, advanced lavatory systems, flight information computers, flat panel display systems, engine and fuel instrumentation systems and advanced monitoring system. There is a lot of overlap between this section and our aerospace and defense section as most companies that manufacture parts and systems for aircraft do so for both the commercial and military markets.
