LONDON, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Most of the countries in the developed world are grappling with high fiscal
deficits. Under pressure from rating agencies, many of these countries have
been looking to bring down their deficits. This has led to significant cuts in
defense spending. In the U.S., the Sequester, or automatic spending cuts, took
effect on March 1, 2013 after lawmakers failed to reach an agreement on
bringing down the mounting deficit. Nearly half of these spending cuts will be
made in defense, which does not augur well for companies such as Raytheon
Company (NYSE: RTN), Northrup Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC), Smith & Wesson
Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: SWHC), Rockwell Collins Inc. (NYSE: COL), and B/E
Aerospace Inc. (NASDAQ: BEAV). Aerospace & defense stocks ended mostly higher
on Friday, tracking gains in the broad market. StockCall reviewed the
Aerospace/Defense industries and chose RTN, NOC, SWHC, COL, and BEAV for its
