In April, I told you one of the safest ways to generate income was to buy defense stocks.   Companies like Lockheed Martin (LMT), Northrop Grumman (NOC), and General Dynamics (GD) were yielding an average 3.7%. That was much higher than the 2% the S&P 500 was yielding.   Plus, these stocks were dirt-cheap – trading at an average of 10 times earnings. That was much cheaper than the average S&P 500 company, at 15 times earnings.   If you followed my advice, you are sitting on solid gains inside of three months. Defense companies soared 15%. That's more than double the S&P 500 index.     Don't be disappointed if you missed this move. I still see defense stocks moving much higher from these levels. 10 Best Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now: Yongye International Inc.(YONG) Yongye International, Inc. engages in the research, development, manufacture, and sale of fulvic … Continue reading
