CNBC's Jim Cramer on Wednesday turned his attention to the industrial goods sector, revealing his favorite stocks in the aerospace and defense industry right now.
Raytheon: "Raytheon does the best missile work," Cramer said of the U.S. weapons maker.
Lockheed Martin: The company behind many of the U.S. Air Force's bombers is also the Pentagon's biggest supplier.
"Lockheed Martin has got a very good dividend. Lockheed Martin is always going to be in the mix," Cramer said.
Northrop Grumman: In addition to making bombers, this company has a "terrific" cybersecurity business, Cramer said. But its unmanned drone business is Northrop's bread and butter, he said.
"They are the unmanned [drone] company to buy. A lot of this is going to have to be unmanned [because] the president doesn't want to put boots on the ground," he said.
Finally, Cramer left investors with a word of caution about the defense sector: "Stay away fromAeroVironment. They did miss the quarter."
