Market Whipsaw: Crypto Collapse and a Lower-than-Expected Inflation Print
Image: Uncertainty in the cryptocurrency markets has surged with concerns over the liquidity of a key exchange. Investors are weighing the spillover effects of crypto with the view that the pace of inflation may have peaked. The U.S. equity market continues to be highly volatile as it whipsaws between concerns over the health and sustainability of cryptocurrency and optimism over lower-than-feared inflation readings. We maintain our bearish/defensive stance on equities, but at the same time, we continue to be “fully-invested” across the simulated newsletter portfolios in part because we don’t want to miss out on days like today, November 10, when the markets are soaring ~2.5%-5.5% depending on which index you are monitoring. We’re also not ruling out a Santa Claus rally through the end of the year. Merry Dow Jones, as they say!

Dividend Growth Newsletter Portfolio Idea Lockheed Martin Continues to Power Ahead in 3Q 2022, Showcases Strong 3% Dividend Yield
Image Source: Tomas Del Coro. Lockheed Martin recently raised its quarterly dividend rate to $3 per share, and the stock now boasts a ~3% dividend yield, which we like a lot. As it relates to all of 2022, Lockheed Martin is targeting an impressive $6+ billion in free cash flow, which helps support our fair value estimate range of $313-$495 per share (with emphasis on the high end) and its resilient Dividend Cushion ratio of 1.4. We’re sticking with shares of Lockheed Martin in the simulated Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio at this time.

Thinking Slow: 3 Research Blind Spots That Changed the Investment World
Image Source: EpicTop10.com. We have to be on high alert about how our minds work. PBS recently delivered a four-part series examining how easily our minds are being hacked, and why it is so important to "think slow." When it comes to the active versus passive debate, does the analysis suffer from parameter risk? With respect to empirical, evidence-based analysis, does the analysis have the entire construct wrong? When it comes to short-cut multiples, are we falling into the behavioral trap of thinking on autopilot?

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.
