Shares of defense contractor and missile developer Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) have surged up and out of a three-month consolidation range to continue a massive uptrend that’s been in place since 2011, which shares rising more than fourfold.

The consistency has been impressive: Shareholders haven’t suffered the indignity of a drop below the 200-day moving average since the summer of 2015.

The company will next report results on July 27 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.75 per share on revenues of $6.2 billion.

The company last reported on April 27 with earnings of $1.73 per share beating estimates by 13 cents on a 3.4% rise in revenue from the year ago period.

Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN) is our play for the trend of war, terrorism, and ugliness.

Raytheon is a leader in the defense industry with billions in contracts with the U.S. government and other countries across the world. That means if the market falls, Raytheon is going to continue to excel over the long term.

Raytheon has billion-dollar contracts with the U.S. government, but it also has a diverse customer base.

International customers make up just under half of its business. That means even if a few countries cut defense spending during an economic downturn, RTN still has plenty of other customers to help it weather the storm.

But RTN’s real allure as an Unstoppable Trend pick is the fact that war is a reality of the world. For instance, as tensions rise abroad, the United States is more likely to need more weapons and equipment.

When the United States launched a missile strike on a Syrian airbase on April 7, Raytheon’s stock jumped more than 2%, since its missiles were used.

RTN currently trades at $181.41 a share and pays a 1.76% dividend yield. RTN is up 27.2% this year.

WATCH THIS 'OFFENSE' STOCK WHEN TENSIONS RUN HIGH

Today's chart highlights the potential of defense stocks...

In the past, we've noted that the U.S. is constantly involved in military action. Defense contractors supply the weapons and technology needed to fight these battles...

And with so much government spending on foreign conflicts, we've said these companies might as well be called "offense" contractors. Right now, one military giant is riding this trend...

We're talking about Raytheon (RTN). This $61 billion company makes precision weapons, military electronics, and other defense products. And the business of war is going strong... Raytheon recently reported its 2017 annual revenue increased 5% over the year before.

In the fourth quarter alone, Raytheon drew around $6.8 billion in net sales – up 8% from the same quarter in 2016.

As you can see in the chart below, Raytheon shares are up nearly 45% over the past year, soaring to new record highs. As the government continues to spend more on defense, expect shares of this "offense" contractor to keep surging...

Defense stocks to buy: Raytheon Company (RTN)

Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) is another defense stock that is mired in the pool of murky headlines. This company is even cheaper than BA, as it sells at a P/E of 20. But RTN stock is not fairing as well.

It is almost flat for the same period. This makes it a good choice for a comeback rally once the leaders come to terms.

The last week of October was brutal to this stock. It collapsed 12% around its earnings event. This is despite the fact that the company beat profits and raised guidance.

But the selling was overdone and evidence to it is the sharp V-shaped recovery. Technically, there should be resistance here but this is a level that the company’s performance earned and will eventually recover.

From there, the bulls can remount their rebound efforts. The $180-per-share-zone is a long-term consolidation area and those usually provide support on the way down.

Best Stocks to Buy: Raytheon (RTN)

Defense giant Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) is the world’s largest producer of guided missiles. As with Boeing, you may be concerned that this stock would suffer in the event of a trade war. However, you can rest easy.

According to research firm Fundstrat, it actually has a trade-war exposure percentage of 35.2% (again, anything under 40% is considered low). And from a Street perspective, the outlook on RTN is also very bullish right now.

“Strong broad order momentum, a large Patriot backlog, and untapped financial firepower give RTN extended EPS and cash flow per share growth potential” cheers five-star Cowen & Co. analyst Cai Rumohr.

He notes that the Harpoon replacement missile bid, a massive $8 billion opportunity, could be decided as soon as fall 2018.

With a strong outlook for 2018 and the subsequent years, RTN has received four buy ratings from the best analysts in the last three months. In this same period, two analysts have remained on the sidelines. The average analyst price target indicates 27% upside potential from the current share price.
