The US initiated the process to deploy an advanced missile defense system, known as Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), in South Korea. The action followed North Korea’s test launch of four ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan, which was perceived as a threat to US naval bases in Japan. In view of the rising security threat following the series of missile and nuclear tests by North Korea, the US and South Korea mutually agreed to fast-track the deployment of the THAAD system. THAAD is an advanced defense missile, designed to destroy short- and medium-range ballistic missiles at a high altitude.

Since 2015’s start, Skaffold’s Top 5 stocks – ANZ, Breville Group, Flight Centre, Nick Scali and REA Group – have gained about 7.4%, compared with the 6.6% achieved by the All Ordinaries Accumulation Index.
