25 Anti Terrorism Stocks

It is sad that we now have to deal with terrorism on a regular basis. But fortunately, there are companies out there that are willing and able to find ways to offset and prevent terrorism. has turned up a list of 25 different anti terrorism companies which develop products and services in various areas of domestic security. Over 20 of these stocks have market caps over $250 million and eight of the stocks pay a dividend. Many of these stocks have already made a large move, but there still may be a long way to go for several of them.

As an example, Analogic (ALOG) is in the business of making and marketing security technology products, explosives detection systems, and weapon and threat detection aviation security systems, in addition to their medical imaging business. The stock has a market cap of $510 million, and a forward PE of 24. This debt free company has $12 in cash per share. The stock pays a yield of 1.00%.

FLIR Systems, Inc. (FLIR) is a provider of thermal imaging and infrared camera systems for force protection, counter terrorism, search and rescue, perimeter security, navigation safety, and law enforcement. The company has a market cap of $5 billion with a forward PE of 21. The company carries only $60 million in total debt with over $400 million in cash.

L-1 Identity Solutions Inc. (ID) is a bit more speculative as it just reported revenues and earnings below forecast. This provider of identity protection solutions has a market cap of $664 million, and unfortunately a very high forward PE of 104. On the plus side, the stock is selling below book value of 7.96 per share, at the time this article was written.

The databases require that you have Microsoft Excel or a similar spreadsheet program. If you have Excel, it should open automatically. If you have another spreadsheet (such as Works or Open Office), you need to right click on the link, choose download, open the spreadsheet, then open the file from within the spreadsheet. This will work whether you have a PC or a Mac.
