Colorado-based Lockheed Martin Space Systems Co. is the odd company out among bidders to start work on a U.S. Air Force project to update the nation’s intercontinental nuclear missile fleet. The Jefferson County-based division of defense contractor Lockheed Martin Corp. (LMT) lost out to two rivals — Chicago-based Boeing Corp. and Redondo Beach, California-based Northrop Grumman Corp. (NOC) — as the Air Force narrowed the competition. Boeing won $349 million and Northrop Grumman $328.5 million for three-year contracts covering engineering and design proposals for a new ground-based nuclear missile system to replace the nation's aging Minuteman III fleet.
Shares of several companies with ties to U.S. defense spending, including Boeing (BA) and Lockheed Martin (LMT), climbed on Tuesday, just one day after President Donald Trump announced a rededication of U.S. military forces in Afghanistan.
