Your Backdoor into “New Space Race” Profits
Dear Wall Street Daily Reader,
When investing in space stocks, there are a thousand different angles you can take.
In fact, this one pioneered by Elon Musk is gaining steam right now.
Problem is, Musk’s space company is private… meaning, everyday people can’t invest in it. But that doesn’t mean you’re completely locked out.
I’ve found a backdoor way to benefit from Musk’s success.
The Company That Fuels the New Space Race
Some say the biggest potential out there is in space tourism and shipping.
Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic (NASDAQ: SPCE) leads the pack here — offering customers the chance to fly out of the stratosphere for a couple hundred thousand dollars and musing about using space travel for ultra-fast commercial flights for the elites.
But the biggest thing out there with the biggest potential in my opinion hides in plain sight.
I’m talking about defense contracts.
Defense contracts with the United States government often come in the form of billions of dollars paid out to companies.
And with the advent and formation of the Space Force under the Trump administration, we could see a massive surge in spending in the next couple years.
Already in 2021, the proposed budget of the Space Force is $15 billion for the fiscal year.
That may sound large, but there’s a lot of room for that to grow. To put it in context, that’s a tenth of the budget the Air Force, the Space Force’s sister branch, gets. There are hundreds of billions of dollars out there to be spent, and today’s pick has a great shot at getting a chunk of that change in the future.
Whether you need to send up satellites or people or cargo, you’re going to need propulsion to get there. And Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings (NYSE: AJRD) is in an amazing spot right now to reap the benefits of the expansion of the Space Force.
AJRD has been a key player in the American space program since the very beginning.
In fact, in the mid-1960s, it was nearly the sole supplier of all U.S. rocket engines. It even built the F-1 engine for the Saturn V rocket, which helped carry astronauts to the moon.
Today, it’s the largest manufacturer of rockets and propellants in the world.
In its arsenal of credentials, it’s also helped land the Mars rover and is a key supplier of engines for NASA’s huge upcoming moon rocket.
On top of this, it has caught the eye of Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), which is set to buy out AJRD by the end of the year. This is a huge deal for AJRD.
LMT already has a foot in the door with the Space Force, as show earlier this month. LMT was awarded a contract for $4.9 billion to produce three Next-Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared satellites for the Space Force.
AJRD’s role will help LMT expand its space business, opening itself up to more contracts with the U.S. government in the future. It’s a game changer for both parties, and there’s a lot of potential here.
So if LMT is buying out AJRD, then why not just buy LMT shares?
One of the best parts about AJRD is an upcoming situation that is almost 100% certain to bring in profits. You see, they put a clause in the deal that guarantees a special $5 dividend for shareholders on March 24, 2021.
This is to be paid to all who own the stock by March 10, 2021.
That’s $5 per share that you own. So if you own 1,000 shares of AJRD by March 10, that’s an immediate $5,000 in your pocket. 10,000 shares, $50,000… you get the idea.
On top of that, when AJRD shares are converted to LMT shares, you’ll get a nice, fat dividend paid out every year.
LMT is still far off its all-time highs after the market’s tumble in 2020 and has a lot of room to grow.
The expansion of the Space Force and the additional contracts to be paid out make it a key company for the future.
Consider adding shares of AJRD today!
