TheStreet's Jim Cramer is keeping an eye on General Dynamics (GD) Wednesday when the defense company releases its latest quarterly results. Analysts polled by Reuters are expecting General Dynamics to post earnings of $2.13 a share on $7.84 billion when it reports its third quarter earnings before the opening bell. Cramer says the reason he's watching this company is 'because every single one of these defense contractors has just delivered unbelievable numbers and because if we get a budget deal, you're going to see the actual budget for defense lifted...because there's war pretty much everywhere.' He says investors should buy some shares of General Dynamics before and then buy some after. Shares of GD are up nearly 8 percent year-to-date.
