Lockheed Martin, whose F-35 fighter jet program has been under presidential spotlight for being too expensive, posted lower-than-expected quarterly sales and said operating margins at three of its business divisions fell.
Shares of the Pentagon's No. 1 weapons supplier fell 2.7 percent to $267.35 in premarket trading on Tuesday.

Operating margins at Lockheed's rotary and missions systems business, which makes the Sikorsky helicopters, more than halved to 3.5 percent.

Lockheed also raised its 2017 net sales forecast range to $49.5 billion to $50.7 billion, from $49.4 billion to $50.6 billion.
The company's net sales rose 6.6 percent to $11.06 billion in the quarter ended March. 26, but missed analysts' average estimate of $11.23 billion.
Net earnings from continuing operations fell to $763 million from $806 million. The company's per-share earnings were unchanged at $2.61.
According to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S, the company's adjusted earnings were $3.00 per share, above the average analyst estimate of $2.79.
Up to Monday's close, Lockheed's stock had risen 21.8 percent in the past 12 months, compared with a 13.51 percent decline in the S&P 500 index.
