Why Lockheed Martin's Stock Is Trading Lower Today

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) shares are trading lower on Monday, potentially in sympathy with Raytheon, which dipped after China announced sanctions on the company.

Lockheed's remaining segments are rotary & mission systems, which is mainly the Sikorsky helicopter business; missiles and fire control, which creates missiles and missile defense systems; and space systems, which produces satellites and receives equity income from the United Launch Alliance joint venture.
