A week before Trump won the election, the Pentagon and Lockheed concluded negotiations on their ninth contract for F-35 fighter jets after 14 months of negotiation on the deal of more than $6.1 billion, Reuters reported.
Last week, Trump took a shot at Boeing via Twitter threatening to cancel its 747 Air Force One program. He claimed the total cost of a new 747 would be more than $4 billion. The company took a $1.4 billion hit to its market value.
CNBC's Jim Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street" on Monday that Trump's behavior is not typical of what previous presidents have done.
"I mean the president ... does he have the ability to say, 'Listen, we're going to take fewer product?' He does," He said. "Does he have the ability to say, 'Listen, we don't like these prices?' Historically, that's not what the president has done. People within the Pentagon have negotiated, but very high level."
Howard Rubel, Jefferies' managing director, told CNBC on Monday the cost of building a weapon defense program involves much more oversight than in the commercial world.
"I am sure there will be a list of how come things cost so much, and then you look at the engineering involved or the quality required to protect a solider. It will be an understanding of the balance versus the cost," he said.
Even with Monday's declines, Lockheed Martin's stock has gained more than 16 percent this year.
