What "Iron Dome" Means for Raytheon

Israel's "Iron Dome" missile defense system proved itself best of breed in the recent November conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Listen in, as Fool contributor Rich Smith explains.

I love things that go "boom." Sonic or otherwise, that means I tend to gravitate towards defense and aerospace stocks. But to tell the truth, over the course of a dozen years writing for The Motley Fool, I have covered -- and continue to cover -- everything from retailers to consumer goods stocks, and from tech to banks to insurers as well. Follow me on Twitter or Facebook for the most important developments in defense & aerospace news, and other great stories besides.
