War Stocks: 8 Interesting Military, Aerospace & Defense Dividend Stocks Income Investors Need

Military expenditure shrunk in 2013 by 1.9% but not all countries are spending less. 

Military spending in North America and in Western and Central European countries has continued to decline, while other countries such as Brazil and Russia have increased their arms investments. 

 I'm not a military guy but my guess is that it could be possible to come back to cold war times. Maybe Europe is creating an own army to fight against Russia. There is a lot of rumor in the market. 

Who might benefit? Defense and Aerospace stocks. Today, I've created a small overview of defense stocks with good dividends that might catch a good part of military budget. 

You can also get more dividend ideas from the military and defense industry in my recent articles.
