This paper hopes to address the queries that new investors may come across regarding behavioral finance. Through Yahoo Finance, Excel, and the Bloomberg Terminal, we can analyze and compare the stock returns from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Orbital ATK to the VIX and S&P 500. An analysis into the aerospace industry reveals that from the top 7 companies, the first 2, Boeing and Airbus, lead the pack by double the revenue from those firms that focused more on government contracts. Whereas the diversified products of Boeing and Airbus make most of their income stream. By examining successful companies and how investor sentiment affects them, it should give insight to market participants on where to invest their money.
