Lockheed Martin Corporation NYSE:LMT, Transdigm Group Incorporated NYSE:TDG - Defense And Consumer Goods Sectors Continue To Boast High Yields

The defense and consumer goods sectors have had consistent growth over the past five years. This year is no different, as both sectors have more than five companies trading at 52-year highs.

Defense Sector

Lockheed Martin Corporation LMT 0.35% is up 33 percent from its 52-week low, trading at $242.13 vs. $181.91. Lockheed has continued to outperform counterparts such by securing contracts with countries around the globe. For example, the U.S. Pentagon contracted Lockheed for a defense contract worth $321.8 million and Lockheed beat out Boeing Co BA 1.53% and Airbus to secure a Danish fighter Jet Order for its F-35s.
