Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) - Dividend Idea Of The Day With 4.95% Yield

Weekly Dividend Stock Ideas Researched by The Dividend Yield Weekly. Our weekly Dividend Idea is the aerospace and defense related stock Lockheed Martin (LMT). The company is estimated at $84.0 by Morningstar which represents a downside of 9.4%. LMT has a 7/10 rating and is an attractive dividend growth stocks with big values. The company raised dividends over 10 consecutive years and raised dividends in average with a double-digit yield. The payout is only at 43.9% at twelve-trailing month basis. The strong cash flow of $4.3 billion from last fiscal year is a solid basis for further dividend hikes. In 2011, the company paid $1.1 billion in dividends and bought $2.5 billion own shares. We like the strong cash flow of LMT and the high exposure to the U.S. economy (85% of sales are generated in the United States) as well as the networking to the government. This could be also a big burden if the U.S. government cuts military budgets due to financial spending problems. It could also an accelerator if the budgets would be raised in the long-run. In addition, we see the company as a highly profitable early stage commodity trader. LMT is one of the largest military supplier.
