I would just buy a mutual fund like Fidelity Select Defense. You get a piece of most every one of those you listed and you take out the guess work of which is the going to be the better winner. Odds strongly favor, if the business is good it is good across the board. But one may rise 3 percent and the other may gain 25 percent. I'm happy with catching the average between all of them that the mutuals offer, to go along the markable lowered risk. 

George only here to help.

Actually though, the bus has already left the parking lot on defense funds/stocks.  It is a little too late to jump on board IMO.
