EM Editor Ross Wilkers Talks GovCon Index’s October Surge, Northrop’s Bomber Win 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 to cover October’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 recovery in October to record its strongest month of the year so far from a volatile third quarter that mirrored choppy activity in U.S. markets.

Other topics included strong third quarter earnings reports from Index companies, the contract won by Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) to build the U.S. Air Force‘s Long Range Strike Bomber and Pentagon acquisition chief Frank Kendall’s comments to CNBC on the prospect of GovCon sector consolidation.
