Valuing Lockheed Martin Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lockheed Martin Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lockheed Martin Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Lockheed Martin Corporation shares trade at around 17x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Lockheed Martin Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.873. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Lockheed Martin Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Lockheed Martin Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$9.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Lockheed Martin Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.2 million Lockheed Martin Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Lockheed Martin Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 6.9% down from 2.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lockheed Martin Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Lockheed Martin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lockheed Martin Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lockheed Martin Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 921120.85106383). Lockheed Martin Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.35. In other words for every 100,000 Lockheed Martin Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2350 shares are currently held short.
However Lockheed Martin Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lockheed Martin Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lockheed Martin Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lockheed Martin Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lockheed Martin Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0092% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lockheed Martin Corporation shares, roughly 9 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Lockheed Martin Corporation.

Environmental score: 9.16/100

Dividend payout ratio: 41.19% of net profits
Recently Lockheed Martin Corporation has paid out, on average, around 41.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lockheed Martin Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lockheed Martin Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $9.6 per share.
While Lockheed Martin Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Lockheed Martin Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Lockheed Martin Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 25 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Lockheed Martin Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 January 1999. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lockheed Martin Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lockheed Martin Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Lockheed Martin Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Lockheed Martin Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $266.11 up to $442.5322. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Lockheed Martin Corporation's is 0.9348. This would suggest that Lockheed Martin Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
