Is Lockheed Martin Corporation under- or over-valued?

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 P/E ratio

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 13x. In other words, Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks trade at around 13x 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 stocks or simply that they're under-valued.

Lockheed Martin Corporation's PEG ratio

Lockheed Martin Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.8959. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks 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 stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Lockheed Martin Corporation's EBITDA

Lockheed Martin Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$10.2 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Lockheed Martin Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.3 million Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Lockheed Martin Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 11.3% down from 2.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks can be evaluated.

Lockheed Martin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lockheed Martin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Lockheed Martin Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.19. In other words for every 100,000 Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2190 stocks are currently held short.

However Lockheed Martin Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks (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 stocks (for every 100,000 Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0099% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Lockheed Martin Corporation.

Lockheed Martin Corporation stock dividends

40%

Dividend payout ratio: 40.45% of net profits

Recently Lockheed Martin Corporation has paid out, on average, around 40.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.05% 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 3.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lockheed Martin Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $10.2 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 24 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 31 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks ever split?

Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks 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 stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Lockheed Martin Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted Lockheed Martin Corporation's stock price.

Lockheed Martin Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lockheed Martin Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $312.9825 up to $392.8782. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LMT.US volatility(beta: 0.97)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Lockheed Martin Corporation's is 0.9716. This would suggest that Lockheed Martin Corporation's stocks are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
