Press about contract bids and wins are meaningless to me at this point. None of that news matters any more. They have been singing the same old song for too long. Pretty press must be translated in to profits - bottom line. Unless and until then this is a small position trading stock for me.
Never understood the point of your daily races... aside from some fun, which is great.
I've owned Lockheed Martin as a core holding for many years. And a lesser amount of General Dynamics.
I've traded KTOS several times for +30-50% gains on several occasions and own some now in the 4s and at 5. While you can make and lose on all three stocks, I would never put all three companies on the same track and the same race. They are far different breeds, raised and growing in different kennels.
Looking at a longterm chart of Lockheed compared to KTOS says it all.
Lockheed is triple crown material. KTOS, sadly, is more of a little piggy or rat race at the country fair.
There has always been poetical here. Perhaps KTOS will turn it around. I hope so for investors and employees.. Perhaps they divest some "non-core" holdings, reduce debt, and headcount further. Improve focus, direction, and execution that eventually leads to profitability. Getting the PPS in double digits. Perhaps, even acquired someday ; - )
