Lockheed Martin is the world’s largest defense contractor. It dominates the high-end fighter aircraft market, especially in the West. The company has tremendous moats due to the complexity of its products. Not only are such products highly technical, but they also have long product cycles. That means long-term contracts, maintenance service revenues, and high switching costs for the customer. Lockheed Martin has a long-growth runway given its dominant incumbent position in the defense industry.
The long term chart for Lockheed Martin shows a clear consistent uptrend. The most recent pullback in this uptrend occurred in early 2020 when the price fell by more than 40% and briefly went below the bottom of the long-term trend. Since then, the stock has been range bound and hovering around the 361 support-resistance zones. Currently, the price is near the bottom of the long-term trend as well as the 361 zones, making it a high-probability candidate for an upside breakout. The target can be 400 initially and then 440. A tight stop loss can be placed below the bottom of the long-term trend, around 345.
