Buying Opportunities in Defense Tech

Defense technology and defense information technology are two areas investors want to be in right now, according to Alex Hamilton, senior managing director at Jesup & Lamont.

“One main reason we like to invest there is, obviously, there’s no credit crunch in defense,” he told CNBC.

His other main reason is a cyber-security inititiative being pushed by the Pentagon.

“It’s a multi-billion dollar, multi-year initiative to protect computers, protect bank accounts (and) protect the Pentagon’s computers," he said.

Hamilton’s favorite names in the sector are SAIC , Caci International and ManTech.

For investors wondering how the fast-approaching presidential election could affect this sector, Hamilton says defense spending likely to remain strong regardless of who wins.
