Lockheed Martin Corp's (NYSE:LMT) strong first-quarter results are pushing its shares to record highs today. The U.S. weapons maker reported earnings of $6.61 per share on revenue of $15.13 billion, which is higher than the estimated $6.44 per share and $15.03 billion, as countries bolster their defenses amid geopolitical tensions. 

Up 3.5% to trade at $506.81 at last glance, LMT earlier hit a peak of $507.98. Moving above former pressure at the $500 level, the stock is up 8.2% year-over-year and 4% year-to-date. 

Options traders are targeting Lockheed Martin stock at six times the intraday average volume, with 7,199 calls and 3,681 puts exchanged already. The April 510 call is the most active contract, with new positions being opened there.

This bullish-leaning sentiment has been the norm lately. LMT's 10-day call/put volume ratio of 2.85 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) ranks higher than 92% of readings from the past year. 

The equity is sporting attractively priced premiums at the moment, too, per its Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 21%, which sits in the low 11th percentile of its annual range.
