With tensions between the United States and North Korea at an all-time high, the U.S. stock market is starting to feel the heat.

President Trump warned North Korea that if it does not refrain from its repeated missile threats, the U.S. will respond with “fire and fury.” The one sector that has benefited from Trump’s sabre-rattling is defense contractors.

At the top of this list from a momentum-trading perspective is The Raytheon Company (RTN).

Its notable missile system includes the Tomahawk cruise missile and an advanced surface- or submarine-launched cruise missile with loitering and network communication capability.
