    General Dynamics Corporation (GD) is an American aerospace and defense company. Formed by mergers and divestitures, it is the world's fifth-largest defense contractor based on 2012 revenues. General Dynamics is headquartered in West Falls Church, Fairfax County, Virginia.

    The company has changed markedly in the post–Cold War era of defense consolidation. It has four main business segments: Marine Systems, Combat Systems, Information Systems Technology, and Aerospace. General Dynamics' former Fort Worth Division manufactured one of the Western world's most-produced jet fighters, the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon—until 1993, when production was sold to Lockheed. In 1999, the company re-entered the airframe business with its purchase of Gulfstream Aerospace.

    What Stocks Does 'The Big Short' Investor Michael Burry Own?
    10:35 am ET March 9, 2022 (Benzinga) Print

    Michael Burry is the founder and former hedge fund manager of now-defunct Scion Capital, most famously known for his massively profitable contrarian investment in the events leading up to the collapse of the real estate market and subsequently the global financial crisis in 2008.

    Burry was active on Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) in 2021 until he closed his bearish bets on Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA). He has since deleted his tweets, and his account. He is the hedge fund manager at Scion Asset Management.

    Though he has not been publicly active in 2022, "The Big Short" investor is keeping it short by holding only six positions in his current fund. According to a 13F and fund filings from Feb. 14, Scion Asset holds:

    Considering GD pays a dividend and has financials that appear to be viable, this seems like a far more palatable trade risk than BA. If you end up getting stuck with it long term, that wouldn't be a bad thing.
