Paris Air Show: While defense companies are being hit by sequestration at home, they are enjoying increasing demand abroad for fighter jets, missile defense systems and other weapons. Air force sales doubled to $22B over the past two years, while the likes of Raytheon (RTN) are overbooked with meetings in Paris this week. Other vendors to benefit include Boeing (BA), United Tech (UTX), Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Textron (TXT).
