EM Editor Ross Wilkers Charts GovCon Index’s September Activity, Correction Zone Entry With Federal News Radio

GovConIndexTYSONS CORNER, VA, September 3,  2015 — Ross Wilkers, newsroom editor at Executive Mosaic, spoke with Federal News Radio live Thursday morning for an in-depth discussion over September’s movements in the GovCon Index, Executive Mosaic’s composite stock index of 30 publicly-traded companies in the U.S. government contracting industry.

Wilkers and “In Depth” program host Francis Rose discussed the Index’s journey in and out of correction territory in the last week of September and how the headwinds of global growth concerns and nero-zero interest rates affect the stock prices of U.S. government contractors

Other topics included comments from Defense Department acquisition chief Frank Kendall on GovCon’s merger-and-acquisition picture and propulsion technology maker Aerojet Rocketdyne‘s move to purchase the United Launch Alliance from owners Lockheed Martin and Boeing.
