Starved for time and need some worthwhile investment opportunities?

TheStreet has you covered. We ingest scores of Wall Street research and talk to countless sources each day for the best thoughts on the market. Here is a platter of ideas to consider gleaned from the various efforts of our newsroom. 

Defense Stocks Deserve a Look

Boeing's (BA) CEO Dennis Muilenburg told TheStreet he caught a glimpse at the 2018/2019 U.S. defense budget and found it hard not to be bullish on spending plans. Not only are the comments bullish for Boeing, but for other defense names such as Action Alerts PLUS holding Raytheon (RTN) .  

Muilenburg also said cargo traffic continues to be solid. That hints that cargo shipping companies like FedEx (FDX) and UPS (UPS) could be having good second quarters despite a downshift in global growth rates.
