From a fundamental perspective, Lockheed Martin is performing phenomenally. LMT has grown its top- and bottom-lines at an amazing rate. Lockheed Martin's only notable fault is its balance sheet, which holds $12.16 billion in debt and just $2.93 billion in cash. However, that should not cause any major issues when considering that one of the Lockheed Martin's biggest clients is the US Department of Defense. This means LMT likely won’t have to deal with a shortage in funding, should it be needed.

Lastly, options traders are still pricing in relatively low volatility expectations for Lockheed Martin stock. This is per its Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 19%, which stands higher than only 12% of readings from the past 12 months.
