TYSONS CORNER, VA, September 3, Â 2015 — Ross Wilkers, newsroom editor at Executive Mosaic, spoke with Federal News Radio Thursday to overview the August movements in theÂ GovCon Index, Executive Mosaicâs composite stock index of 30 publicly-traded firms in the U.S. government contracting industry.
InÂ that segment aired Thursday, Wilkers and “In Depth” program host Francis Rose discussed how August’s volatility in U.S. and global markets affected the GovCon Index and how close it came to officially being in a correction.
Wilkers and Rose also examined this week’s news that Computer Sciences Corp.’s U.S. public sector spinoff and SRA International would merge once the future “CSCGov” separates from CSC andÂ how historically-low interest ratesÂ are a driver behindÂ 2015’s high volume of merger-and-acquisition deals in theÂ GovCon and defenseÂ sector.
