former politician YITZHAK BEN-YISRAEL is currently the chairman of the Israel Space Agency and head of the security studies programme at Tel Aviv University He was Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s chief cybernetics advisor from 2010-12 when he established the National Cyber Bureau The author of Dialogues on Science and Military Intelligence (1989) and The Philosophy of Military Intelligence (1999) among others Ben-Yisrael was in Delhi recently when he spoke to Sudeep Paul: You’ve been associated with the India-Israel bilateral relationship for a long time How satisfied are you with the big picture right now We began cooperating in defence first more than 20 years ago After the fall of the Soviet Union India found itself in a situation where its defence was based mainly on Soviet equipment The West still didn’t trust India fully Israel found itself in a unique situation We had common interests and common values And also Israel had good technology that was not at that time available to India So we started in that area I was lucky to be one of the pioneers on the Israeli side and I found in India a very remarkable person who was then DRDO director — Dr APJ Abdul Kalam We discovered a common language and interests and we launched this cooperation We hoped it would involve commercial civil and cultural cooperation as well and not just defence But at that time because of political reasons this didn’t succeed so much There was progress but the rate of progress was relatively slow relative to defence Today I think we are back on the right track and we have the ability to expand our collaboration to other fields as well Your position on Iran’s nuclear programme has evolved from thinking long ago that a strike was perhaps necessary to believing a strike would only accelerate it Since an Iranian nuclear deal looks a near-term possibility how would it impact the Middle East It depends very much on the details which will determine whether it’s a good deal or a bad one A deal by itself is not the goal The strategic situation is this: in order to make a bomb the most crucial element is the fissile material For that you can either produce plutonium or enrich uranium For the time being the Iranians don’t know how to produce plutonium So they put their emphasis on enriching uranium They know how to do this and nothing will change it — neither a deal nor bombing They know how to enrich uranium and make it weapons grade But they are not doing it Because of many reasons — sanctions politics the Iranian economy and the price of oil So they want to reach a deal What is the ideal deal Let’s say they agree to destroy everything all capabilities all facilities But then one day they start again How long will it then take them to reach feasibility They know how to build the facilities and knowing how things are these cannot come from outside So they’ll have to build new facilities like 4-5000 centrifuges With all this they can produce one bomb in a year So… three years Currently before the interim deal they were some three months from the end In the interim deal they agreed to get rid of the 20 per cent enriched uranium So the interim deal took them six to nine months from the endline Ideally you can go back up to three years So the ideal deal will be in between three years and nine months Time is important If the deal is to take them back two years that means if they change their mind in future the world will have two years to react — to warn form a coalition and perhaps undertake military action If it’s only nine months the time may not be enough to arrange all this So it’s all very dependent on two factors: one the time period of the deal; two the monitoring mechanisms to prevent Iran from doing something secretly I think a deal is today a better strategy than military action because they have already crossed the point of acquiring knowledge But it depends very much on the deal From Iran and Syria to ISIS the Middle East illustrates how governments have to work under ‘conditions of uncertainty’ to use your phrase The world from Ukraine to East Asia is geopolitically precarious India for instance worries about post-Nato Afghanistan Under such circumstances does a government just wait and watch while minimising risk and damage It’s very difficult to give advise to a big country like India Nevertheless in Israel we’ve had experience in dealing with more severe situations The Middle East of course for the last 100 years or so has been the core of uncertainty in the world No one really knows what will happen in the future We can only assume So a state would need the kind of security measures that will be flexible enough to deal with different scenarios You can guess two or three possible scenarios here and there and prepare yourself And a lot of countries feel they have prepared in vain — you invest money etc and then nothing happens The philosophy of Israel is that in such cases it justifies the investment One reason why Iran didn’t weaponise was because they could see the other side was prepared This is called a deterrent And that’s how we do business in Israel We look at the future and we try to guess not what would happen but a few reasonable scenarios Then we prepare ourselves to meet the same There is really no other way a government could act in such uncertain conditions If you have an a priori assumption you might be surprised by a different development The Yom Kippur War changed the way Israel prepared and alerted itself including intelligence gathering In the Yom Kippur War we had a different problem We knew that Israel was born in a war and that war never stopped there But in 1973 the failure was more an intelligence failure The problem with Israel is that it is so small compared to its neighbours — if you take only those Arab countries that have borders with Israel you get something like 20 times more people than in Israel If you take the whole Arab world it’s 60 times as much We cannot have a military force that is suitable for defending Israel against such a huge hostile environment So what we did instead was have a certain reasonable force and in case of an emergency called in the reserves Everyone in Israel has to go through compulsory service for three years and then until the age of 40-50 he still serves The majority of the forces is reserves Now in order to call the reserves you need some time In 1973 it was 36 hours In this case you’d need a very good intelligence system that would alert you at least 36 hours before the other side attacks you We failed to do that in 1973 If you don’t do it for the first two or three days it gets very difficult because we didn’t have enough force along the borders to meet all these invading divisions from Egypt and Syria So this was a different type of surprise It’s not that we didn’t know they were going to attack We knew it but we didn’t know they’d do it just at that moment The geography of Israel doesn’t allow a big enough force 24 hours a day We had to call in reserves and for this we needed an intelligence alert and we failed to do that But since then we also changed some of our priorities giving more power to our intelligence services more manpower more money so as not to surprised again Your theoretical proposition and explication are that intelligence gathering is like science That is so People usually tend to lean on experience You ask someone what will happen and he’ll tell you “You know I’ve been working in this for 20-30 years And if you ask me judging from my experience this will never happen” This is human psychology and a human tendency when we make intelligence estimates And it is wrong Every time someone on the other side does something not done before you’ll be surprised because there’s no previous “experience” I have written two books and some articles on this — that this is not the right approach to making intelligence estimates You have to do it like scientists First inventing creating possible scenarios — in science what we call hypotheses And then eliminating the wrong ones by testing them in real life In science you test them in the laboratory; in intelligence you test confront them with a piece of knowledge that’s been gathered In gathering intelligence on domestic terror threats monitoring individuals and groups can be difficult — for both human and cyber intel — largely because of the dangerous and thin lines Cyber technology started as an extension of regular intelligence activities Intelligence is interested in knowing what are your secrets Therefore if I am in the intelligence service I have to go through your files and look for the information For the last 20-30 years information is stored in computers In order to know what’s stored in your computer I have to use cyber technology So cyber tech is usually associated with intelligence work as with the NSA etc But now there is a huge difference and this is a problem not yet solved satisfactorily The problem is unlike conventional military intelligence that involves two defence forces here we are talking about the internet and cyberspace used by civilians not just by the military Even if I want to penetrate a military computer it is not like a missile that I launch and it hits the target A cyber missile has to go through computers and servers which are usually civilian Therefore in order to protect yourself against cyber attacks you need some monitoring of the civilian cyberspace And this is a huge problem because by doing it you might violate people’s privacy What is the right balance between the two On one hand we need to secure ourselves On the other privacy is important in any democracy like India or Israel So you need the right balance and there is still no satisfactory solution to this problem Two months ago the Israeli government after a year’s work that I had the honour to lead accepted a kind of solution now being built and I hope it will work It is to take this task of internal cyber monitoring from the intelligence services and set up a new civilian authority that we call the National Cyber Security Authority — a new civilian one with nothing to do with intelligence or military business with one task in hand only and that is preserving the health of the cyberspace They will monitor what’s going on in cyberspace to prevent malware from travelling There’s no other task I hope this will be the right balance between the two needs because you cannot really have one and — going for full security and monitor everything or no monitoring at all This is part of the National Cyber Initiative that I launched four years ago Then the government decided — and Israel became the first country to do so — to build within the prime minister’s office a new service we call now the National Cyber Bureau It is a bureau of many players in cyberspace cybersecurity cyber intelligence and internal security and the NCB is the conductor of the orchestra The new authority NCSA is different It will get its policy from the NCB but it will act on its own as an independent body You’ve written about technology and the future of violence A whole spectrum of extremists use the social media space How do authorities deal with the interface between technology (cyber particularly) and violence or rather the incitement to it in a typical case like the Bangalore professional who ran an ISIS Twitter account There are some Israeli citizens who operate in the grey area between the legal and illegal They sometimes hint at or encourage illegal actions using one of the basic rights of every democracy — freedom of expression They will always say this is a part of our rights to express their opinions It poses a very difficult problem for the government Here again you have the tension between democratic rights and security You cannot ignore one for the other I don’t know how to solve this problem universally Every state has to cope with it and find the right way to do it When gangsters took over Chicago in the 1930s when they got Al Capone in the end they got him for tax evasion — not for the real reason But they put him behind bars nevertheless So you have to find the right ways to do it without sacrificing basic values and that’s why it’s very difficult But the other side is that they abuse democracy and do so for wrong things exploiting the values we have in place They use our systems based on certain assumptions in order to destroy those systems and this should not be permitted We should find a way to secure ourselves without sacrificing freedom of expression I don’t know how to do it but I understand the problem And they are very good at using the weaknesses of democracies for their purpose We hear about building an ‘ecosystem’ for bilateral collaboration in cyber security India’s corporate sector looks particularly vulnerable it reportedly lost about $4 billion to cyber attacks last year This could be a very good space for India and Israel to collaborate That’s true And I am not talking about traditional defence but larger things The way we see the NCB’s task in Israel it has two goals: one to coordinate with players on cyber security For this you have to look at the threats to find ways to stop these threats from being carried out The other goal is different altogether It is to use the very fact that Israel is already more than 20 years in this business and that we have already put an emphasis on hi-tech generally and cyber-tech specifically — to use it as an opportunity to make Israel one of the world’s centres for cyber security technology And this is the reason I am here for a conference arranged by the CII to see what can be done in areas of academic cooperation inter-industry cooperation (not defence) The purpose was to see what can be done in these areas and to enhance collaboration in especially two areas — cyber security and food security The latter is also very important and there are relations between the two It turned out there’s a lot to be done between universities etc and a large group from Indian industry will come to Israel next year for our annual international cyber conference in which all members of the Israeli ecosystem — start-ups industry government academy etc meet We had 5000 people last year and next year I hope to see 100 Indians You’ve advocated constant advancement and evolution of technology for military preparation and security India saw both procurement and production almost come to a halt for almost a decade Currently there seem to be efforts to getting our defence back on track How important would be the need for constant R&D in defence while looking at evolving threats It is important because every country has its own unique requirements Certain platforms are very flexible You can buy them and adapt them But many times for example if you have a situation in the Himalayas nobody is developing weapons to deal with such high altitude and such low pressure In this case the only one who can do so is yourself Add to this the fact that India is not a small country It should therefore behave like any big country This means among other things being if not fully then highly independent in weapons and tech service So India should be able to develop and build by itself its main weapon systems The question is how do you accomplish this You cannot say that because of this reason you will only go for indigenous development That takes time But it’s only a question of time since the goal should be independence Yet if you go about only purchasing too aggressively you will not gain insight you won’t learn how to build and improve In the end you’ll be dependent on external developers and producers If you proceed aggressively with indigenous production you will find yourself without what you need for 20 years or so — military development on any weapon or system takes 10 to 20 years — and you will also lose out on technology So you need a rational combination And I mentioned to you that on the Israeli side I was one of the pioneers in building this relationship with Dr Kalam on your side He was clever enough to understand that in order to improve DRDO capability to meet the Indian forces’ needs in a hostile environment you would need some cooperation to gradually build the indigenous capability This is the right way to go about it India launches Israel’s satellites and Israel is reputed for a very pragmatic quality over quantity approach to space What are we looking ahead to in space collaboration in the wake of the Mars mission etc This is one area in which India has taken a huge leap in the last 20 years or so A huge leap And I met the ISRO chief a few months ago in Toronto I congratulated him on the Mars mission which is fantastic I have known Indian space for at least 20 years and it’s progressing very fast India today can do things that no more than three or four countries can do I think they’re on the right track and I admire them Still I think there is some place for collaboration especially in certain niches I am not speaking about the big picture but in certain niches we have capabilities mainly in lighter satellites etc We can cooperate here and it isn’t just India that has something to offer to this collaboration We can also offer something Apart from using space for ‘strategic depth’ and intel gathering we are also debating ‘space sustainability’ today with so many states looking at space aggressively Well people usually criticise anything that involves big money That’s a human tendency Space is no exception Still if you ask me this is one of the most fascinating areas Why do we invest in space First of all to promote science Science is something that’s not so concrete At the end of the day because of science there will be better technology and the people in the street too will benefit But you don’t feel or realise that benefit right now Now it feels that instead of investing here to improve our roads houses and markets etc you are investing in space which is very far away Second and this is a very crucial reason for a state like Israel and I guess it’s the same also here in India it’s very difficult to convince kids to study science and mathematics We have to find the right ways to attract them to these subjects Space is a wonderful tool for this It attracts kids much more than other things We did some research and found three things that attract kids to mathematics and the physical sciences: space because it does something to their imagination; robots are another; and don’t ask me why but dinosaurs I always tell my colleagues at the Israel Space Agency that we will build a robot that looks like a dinosaur and send it to the moon Then we will get the whole globe’s attention For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Jalil Mehdi | Updated: April 16 2015 12:17 am View of the Israeli nuclear facility in the Negev Dest outside Dimona (Source: Reuters/photo) Related News In An article in The Indian Express (April 14) Daniel Carmon the Israeli ambassador to India has described the future of the Lausanne understanding between Iran and the P5+1 as “bad and dangerous” He laments that even India considers a deal with a “rogue regime” that has “consistently ignored UN Security Council resolutions” as “a great diplomatic achievement” Tacitly making common cause with Arab monarchies he repudiates the Lausanne framework for not doing anything to curb Iran’s “aspirations to acquire nuclear military capabilities” and its “promotion of terrorism and instability” This article appeared a day after the great German author Gunter Grass died In his controversial 2012 poem “What must be said” written in the backdrop of Germany handing over a sixth Dolphin-class submarine capable of carrying nuclear warheads to Israel he rejects “the West’s hypocrisy” over alleged Iranian nuclear designs when Israel’s nuclear capabilities are proven “beyond supervision or verification” Though the Israeli state has institutionalised nuclear opacity at the highest levels of national strategy there is enough data to back Grass’s worry that Israel’s nuclear capability “endangers an already fragile world peace” It is now a “public secret” partly due to the 1986 disclosure by Mordechai Vanunu a dismissed Israeli nuclear technician that Israel possesses a deadly stockpile of nuclear warheads Add to it Israel’s insecurity manifest in its nuclear doctrine commonly known as the “Samson Option” This doctrine calls for a massive disproportionate strike on a hostile state in the event of an Israeli defeat in a conventional war Any such action could wipe off the whole of West Asia It is hypocritical of Carmon to repudiate Iran for allegedly trying to build an arsenal that Israel already possesses Scholars like Kenneth Waltz see the root cause of Iranian behaviour in the security dilemma posed by Israel’s regional nuclear monopoly which for more than four decades has fuelled instability in West Asia Indeed it is Israel’s unchecked nuclear prowess and not the alleged Iranian desire for an arsenal that has resulted in the current crisis By their very nature states want to balance the power of other states that threaten them The nuclearisation of South Asia is a vivid example With a hint of surprise he disagrees with those in India who see the Lausanne framework as “a great diplomatic achievement” Arguing within a non-proliferation discursive framework he appeals to world powers including India to create viable and credible alternatives with more intrusive IAEA inspections He seems to forget that India has historically rejected the non-proliferation discourse that essentially views the acquisition of nuclear weapons by any other state outside the P5 as highly undesirable From an Indian perspective the nuclear non-proliferation regime is one of the most discriminatory Without a time-bound commitment to nuclear disarmament by nuclear powers it has divided the world into nuclear haves and have-nots The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) the backbone of this regime was a result of the two Cold War-era superpowers limiting the “ultimate power” to themselves and denying it to the rest The indefinite extension of the NPT in 1995 has ensured a system of “nuclear apartheid” a term used by Indian government officials to reject the “nuclear colonialism” promoted by the developing NPT regime in the 1960s and 1970s The NPT was ultimately signed and came into force in 1968 Since then the US-led NPT regime has tried to make it extremely difficult for any state to seek nuclear capability by imposing crippling sanctions offering incentives and at times issuing military threats The Indian defiance of the NPT regime by conducting a peaceful nuclear explosion in 1974 led to a volley of sanctions and isolation including the institutionalisation of the technology-denial regime that continued beyond the May 1998 Pokhran tests Though other nuclear states like Pakistan and North Korea have come under heavy sanctions and international criticism Israel’s de facto nuclear arsenal interestingly doesn’t figure in the proliferation debate The US the chief architect of the NPT has not even mildly pressured Israel to sign the treaty Israel is not party to the NPT and has not along with the US ratified the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) As long as Israel possesses nuclear weapons and refuses to reflect on its own inventory proliferation is inevitable Only a comprehensive approach towards nuclear disarmament can guarantee long-term stability in West Asia The writer is

On the opening day of the Fourth Nuclear Security Summit in Washington on March 31 demonstrators outside the White House held up placards with the blunt message: “There is no nuclear security as long as nuclear weapons exist” The Nuclear Security Summits have been about adoption of measures to prevent terrorist groups such as the Islamic State (IS) and al-Qaeda from gaining access to nuclear weapons fissile or radiological material or from attacking nuclear facilities through an array of national bilateral or multilateral measures However international cooperation in promoting nuclear security is limited to the civilian sector only Countries with nuclear weapons are expected to take national measures to secure their military facilities fissile material and weapons Share This Article Related Article President Barack Obama announced his initiative to convene serial Nuclear Security Summits in his much acclaimed Prague speech in 2009 But his key declaration in the speech was the re-commitment of the US to the goal of a world free of nuclear weapons Thus nuclear disarmament and nuclear security were integrally linked The latter could only be an interim though important step in the pursuit of nuclear disarmament Obama also pledged that the US would in negotiations with Russia further reduce its nuclear arsenal and would not develop any new nuclear weapons He also hoped to persuade the US Congress to ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) While the limited nuclear security initiative has gone ahead the pursuit of nuclear disarmament has been reduced to a mere proforma pledge In fact there has been a significant reversal as both the US and Russia have expanded their nuclear weapon programmes over the past five years The US has not ratified the CTBT On the eve of the summit Obama said: “I’ve reduced the number and role of nuclear weapons in our national security strategy I have also ruled out developing new nuclear warheads and narrowed contingencies under which the US could ever use or threaten to use nuclear weapons” And yet the Pentagon reportedly plans to spend $1 trillion over 30 years on an entire new generation of nuclear bombs bombers missiles and submarines After the Ukraine crisis Obama has reportedly ordered 200 additional nuclear weapons to be deployed in Europe The decoupling of nuclear disarmament from nuclear security is complete So what did the Fourth Nuclear Security Summit achieve The summit adopted a Washington Communiqué and four fairly detailed “action plans” relating to key components of the nuclear security regime These are all directed towards the laudable aim of securing all nuclear-related materials devices and facilities so as to prevent access by non-state actors and terrorist groups The global nuclear security regime is based on both legal and informal instruments The UN Security Council Resolution 1540 (2004) imposes an obligation on states to secure all fissile materials and nuclear facilities to prevent the risk of a dangerous link between international terrorism and weapons of mass destruction The International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism and the International Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Materials and its 2005 amendment are other legal instruments The summit communiqué urges states that have not done so to sign and ratify these instruments and to ensure their implementation For follow up the IAEA will convene a ministerial-level international conference on nuclear security in December this year and this is likely to become a regular high-level forum There will also be a contact group at the IAEA at the official and expert level to continue and advance the momentum achieved at the nuclear summits In addition to endorsing the central role of the IAEA in promoting nuclear security the summit adopted four action plans pertaining to the UN Interpol the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Weapons and the Global Partnership Against the Spread of Nuclear Weapons and Materials of Mass Destruction — the latter two being informal arrangements among a number of states mostly from the developed world The action plans are non-binding best endeavours pledged by states for national and bilateral initiatives or multilateral cooperation to strengthen nuclear security through the use of technology adoption of best practices and capacity building This summit brought a timely new focus on the link between nuclear security and cyber security Interpol’s “Operation Fail Safe” initiative deals with the potentially dangerous nexus between cyber attacks and nuclear risks The other areas of cooperation are methods of vetting and carrying out psychological assessments of personnel working in nuclear facilities and the monitoring of radiation levels and surveillance at borders for preventing trafficking of nuclear-related materials Nuclear security is also linked to non-proliferation measures; for example the continued reduction in the use of highly enriched uranium (HEU) and plutonium in civil nuclear facilities to minimise possible leakage for weapon use Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced several contributions to nuclear security India will participate in the informal international “contact group” which fosters cooperation in countering nuclear smuggling Its own Global Centre for Nuclear Energy Partnership (GCNEP) will participate in the group on nuclear security training and support centres and centres of excellence India has also announced that none of its research reactors will be using HEU henceforth In the past India had avoided joining such groups known as “gift baskets” which brought together countries to cooperate on a voluntary basis on nuclear security issues These announcements underscore India’s credentials to become a member of the Nuclear Suppliers’Group Modi also used the summit to focus on the threat to nuclear security posed by state sponsorship of terrorist groups and the pursuit of risky escalatory policies such as the deployment of theatre nuclear weapons Though Pakistan was not named the target was obvious And yet in his closing remarks Obama put India in the same bracket as Pakistan calling on both “to make sure that as they develop military doctrines that they are not continually moving in the wrong direction” Old habits of

Market crash: 2 FTSE stocks I would invest £1,000 into now! I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Jabran Khan has no position in any shares mentioned.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. After March’s market crash, there is a very real possibility that the market could crash again. With that in mind, here are two stocks that represent good investment opportunities, in my opinion.Market crash opportunity #1I believe the UK’s largest listed tech company Sage (LSE:SGE) represents a unique opportunity. The accounting and payroll software giant was recognised in 2017 as the world’s third largest supplier of enterprise resource planning software. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Pre-market crash, Sage’s share price sat comfortably close to 800p per share. When the crash started, it hit a low of 534p. But its current per share price has recovered somewhat to be close to 750p, which is a positive sign.Sage has been focusing on migrating its customers to its cloud-based subscription service. A trading update for the nine months to 30 June was released yesterday. Recurring revenue for this period increased by 9%. This was underpinned by the subscription growth of over 22%. Overall, total group revenue increased by 4.1%. In Q3, when the market crashed, Sage’s recurring revenue grew by over 6%. I think this shows excellent defensive quality, against a backdrop of the pandemic and economic uncertainty.Sage possesses a healthy balance sheet with cash and available liquidity of £1.2bn. I believe market conditions will continue to normalise and Sage can shift its focus towards new customer acquisition once more. It has a good record of growing revenue, earnings and dividends, which indicates a positive outlook. Sage is one stock I firmly place in my ‘defensive’ category and I really like the look, model and direction of the business. I still think its share price will rise as the markets attempt to recover from the market crash.Opportunity #2I wrote about defence, security and aerospace powerhouse BAE Systems (LSE:BAE) in February prior to the market crash. BAE had just released its full-year results and at the time, its share price stood at close to 660p per share. Sales and revenues rose impressively, acquisitions were being negotiated and all was well.Fast forward through the market crash and performance has been affected like every other firm, but not a lot has actually changed. However, you can pick up the shares at less than 500p. At the height of the crisis its price even lowered closer to the 420p mark. I consider it too good an opportunity to miss. A trading update released by BAE last month focused on productivity and getting its employees back to work. BAE said orders and demand remained in line with expectations despite the pandemic, which is encouraging. As restrictions are beginning to ease, BAE also believes the second half of this year will be a normal six-month period, which is a confident stance to take. BAE is a relatively ‘safe’ investment in my opinion. It mainly deals with governments, which means they will pay their bills on time. Furthermore, it has tens of billions worth of backlogged orders. It has a great dividend yield creeping towards the 5% mark and a cheap share price, with a price-to-earnings ratio of 10. There is not much to dislike, I feel, and since the market crash BAE is cheap to pick up. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.
