Aerospace company Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) Tuesday said its sales increased 9% in the third quarter, driving up net profit. The top-line also came in above the market’s prediction. The stock made modest gains soon after the announcement.

In the most recent quarter, earnings rose to $1.7 billion or $6.05 per share from $1.6 billion or $5.66 per share in the third quarter of 2019. The bottom-line was slightly below the Street view.
