Paper: Value and Momentum Within Stocks, Too
Abstract: This paper strives to advance the field of finance in four ways: 1) it extends the theory of the “The Arithmetic of Active Management” to the investor level; 2) it addresses certain data problems of factor-based methods, namely with respect to value and book-to-market ratios, while introducing price-to-fair-value ratios in a factor-based approach; 3) it may lay the foundation for academic literature regarding the Valuentum, the value-timing, and ultra-momentum factors; and 4) it walks through the potential relative outperformance that may be harvested at the intersection of relevant, unique and compensated factors within individual stocks.

Dividend Growth Giant Lockheed Martinâ€™s Share Price Surges 35%+ in 2022
Image: Lockheed Martin’s shares have been bolstered by a robust share buyback program during the fourth quarter of 2022. Though we still expect shares to be resilient, some technical consolidation may be necessary. Image Source: TradingView. Lockheed Martin’s aggressive buybacks during the fourth quarter of 2022 may have driven its price up to lofty levels, but we continue to like shares in the Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio heading into 2023. The company’s free cash flow generation remains robust, its backlog has firmed up, and geopolitical tensions around the globe continue to intensify. The company’s equity yields ~2.5% at the time of this writing.

Lockheed Martin Facing Near Term Headwinds; Longer Term Outlook Remains Bright
Image Source: Lockheed Martin Corporation – Second Quarter of Fiscal 2022 IR Earnings Presentation. Lockheed Martin Corp reported earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 (period ended June 26, 2022) that missed consensus top- and bottom-line estimates, largely due to delays in securing another domestic F-35 contract and supply chain hurdles. In our view, these are near term headwinds that are resolvable. Reportedly, Lockheed Martin is nearing a deal worth ~$30 billion with the US Department of Defense (‘DoD’) covering orders for around 375 F-35 aircraft. As it concerns supply chain hurdles, the resumption of normal economic activities (as the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is put behind the world economy) should steadily allow industrial supplies and global logistics networks to catch up. These headwinds forced Lockheed Martin to reduce its guidance for fiscal 2022 in conjunction with its latest earnings update, specifically as it concerns its revenue and diluted EPS forecasts, though the defense contractor maintained its free cash flow and ‘segment operating profit’ guidance. We continue to like Lockheed Martin in the Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio. The geopolitical backdrop (with an eye towards the Ukraine-Russia crisis, rising tensions between the US and China, and Western concerns with Iran and North Korea’s nuclear programs) is conducive for increased national defense spending in the U.S. and Western aligned nations across the globe. Lockheed Martin is well-positioned to meet those needs. Shares of LMT yield ~2.8% as of this writing.

Dividend Growth Idea Lockheed Martin Doing Its Best to Arm Western Allies
Image Shown: Dividend growth idea Lockheed Martin Corporation is very shareholder friendly. The defense contractor is doing its best to arm Ukraine and other Western allies during these difficult times. Image Source: Lockheed Martin Corporation – First Quarter of Fiscal 2022 IR Earnings Presentation. The Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 and simmering geopolitical tensions in East Asia between Western aligned nations and China over Taiwan and other issues have created a backdrop that is conducive to significant increases in national defense spending. Though we hope peace prevails soon, the realities on the ground in Ukraine and elsewhere call for North Atlantic Treaty Organization (‘NATO’) member nations and other Western aligned nations to ramp up their military budgets to deter future threats and to prepare for worst case scenarios.
