Fund Description

The Fidelity Select Defense & Aerospace Portfolio (FSDAX) is an actively managed fund that focuses on the aerospace and defense segment of the industrial sector. The fund holds the stocks of weapons manufacturers, plane builders, cyber-security and other defense-related firms. FSDAX uses fundamental analysis to find firms that exhibit both value and growth traits, and quantitative analysis to predict which subsectors will benefit from government spending.

Given the fund’s narrow focus, FSDAX should only be used as a satellite position within a broader equity portfolio. The fund is managed by Fidelity.
