Lockheed Martin Offering Possible 6.38% Return Over the Next 18 Calendar Days

Lockheed Martin's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Lockheed Martin is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $160.00 short put and a strike $150.00 long put offers a potential 6.38% return on risk over the next 18 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $160.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.60 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $9.40 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $150.00 long put strike price.

The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Lockheed Martin is bullish.

Reuters – The U.S. Air Force on Tuesday said it would take $430 million from other priorities to fund development of a new combat rescue helicopter by United Technologies Corp's Sikorsky Aircraft, the only company that bid for the work.

The Air Force said it expected to award a contract to Sikorsky by the end of June after a review by senior Pentagon officials and an independent cost estimate.
