Build an-anti terrorist porftolio- GD, BA, FCX, NEM, SLV, MO, FO & BOYD

By Yaser Anwar, CSC of Equity Investment Ideas

Fortunately, there are several ways you can protect yourself in this Age of Terrorism. Consider two of them:

1. Continue to invest in foreign stocks and emerging markets.

2. Establish an "Anti-Terrorist Portfolio." Several years ago, I made a list for my Forecasts & Strategies subscribers that included investments that might benefit from terrorism. They are:

Defense stocks, such as Boeing (NYSE: BA), General Dynamics (GD), and Lockheed Martin (LMT)
Commodities, such as oil, gas, copper and aluminum (USO, FCX & PD)

Gold and silver (NEM & SLV)

So-called "vice" companies that specialize in alcohol (FO), tobacco (MO) and gambling (BOYD)

Inflation-Indexed Government Bonds (TIPS)
