I am buying a few more shares once it dips again..IF it does...but i think in the next 365 days LMT will announce a stock split...so I am hopeful
I like stock splits so I hope you are correct. I was only able to participate in the last one, but it made a big difference. Al
See Chart Looks like a top. See ya at $120.
copy and paste
Sellers can keep kicking this stock below 190, but someone, somewhere, will keep bringing LMT back to 190.
Ignore the talking heads saying this stock is overvalued. If the powers that be wanted LMT to stay lower than 190, they would. As their motto goes...they never forget who they're working for.
And neither should you.
Well... so LMT has struggled to stay above the 200 day SMA since beginning of May, and has now clearly broken down through it. A 50/200 day SMA death cross appears imminent. Is it finally time to short this stock?
I will keep adding LMT shares on weakness and dips..only have a starter position here, I bought this will the intention of getting a stock split in the next year or two...
Lockheed Martin (LMT) has 3 splits in our Lockheed Martin stock split history database. The first split for LMT took place on September 09, 1983. This was a 3 for 1 split, meaning for each share of LMT owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 3 shares. For example, a 1000 share position pre-split, became a 3000 share position following the split. LMT's second split took place on March 16, 1995. This was a 163 for 100 split, meaning for each 100 shares of LMT owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 163 shares. For example, a 3000 share position pre-split, became a 4890 share position following the split. LMT's third split took place on January 04, 1999. This was a 2 for 1 split, meaning for each share of LMT owned pre-split, the shareholder now owned 2 shares. For example, a 4890 share position pre-split, became a 9780 share position following the split.
When a company such as Lockheed Martin splits its shares, the market capitalization before and after the split takes place remains stable, meaning the shareholder now owns more shares but each are valued at a lower price per share. Often, however, a lower priced stock on a per-share basis can attract a wider range of buyers. If that increased demand causes the share price to appreciate, then the total market capitalization rises post-split. This does not always happen, however, often depending on the underlying fundamentals of the business. Looking at the Lockheed Martin stock split history from start to finish, an original position size of 1000 shares would have turned into 9780 today. Below, we examine the compound annual growth rate — CAGR for short — of an investment into Lockheed Martin shares, starting with a $10,000 purchase of LMT, presented on a split-history-adjusted basis factoring in the complete Lockheed Martin stock split history
An unmanned SpaceX cargo mission crashed back to Earth today (June 28), marking the third failure of a resupply flight to the International Space Station in the past eight months.
SpaceX's robotic Dragon capsule blasted off atop the company's two-stage Falcon 9 rocket as planned today at 10:21 a.m. EDT (1421 GMT) from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, headed for the orbiting lab. But something went wrong about two minutes into the flight, and the rocket broke apart, raining debris out of the sky.
"There was an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank. Data suggests counterintuitive cause," SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk said via Twitter today, which is, incidentally, his 44th birthday. "That's all we can say with confidence right now. Will have more to say following a thorough fault tree analysis."
Cost of the booster due to this failure ~ $130M (average cost, $1.6B for 12 flights)
Cost of the payload due to this failure is TBD
3 failures to re-supply the International Space Station in the last 9 months;
1) Orbital ATK's Antares Rocket (Oct '14)
2) Russian Progress Rocket (May '15)
3) SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket (June '15)
ULA has successfully launched their last 96 missions
Does not set a good precedence for SpaceX's attempt at future contracts to launch US Government payloads.
