In the short run the stock is at its year low; so I would expect some short term capital gains; but the administration is cutting the defense budget by 50% or more. NOC relies on government contracts heavily, so in the long term this may not be a good play.

Government cutbacks will hurt defense contractors over the next few years as governments deal with fiscal austerity and winding down overseas deployments.

Big defense contractor with leading market position. Spinning off low-margin shipbuilding business that has been depressing overall earnings. Through the spin-off, NOC will be able to unload a significant amount of debt on the shipbuilder, and allow it to focus on its higher margin businesses. An additional kicker can be found in the proposed spin-off. It looks like the shipbuilding business will have significant leverage. Additionally, the business’ margins have been substantially decreased by difficulties in the gulf coast. The company has decided to close one of the shipyards by 2013. The high leverage creates an opportunity in that any operating improvements will be amplified in earning growth. It appears management will have a considerable stake in the new entity and long-term incentives. The proposed CEO, Mike Petters, has an outstanding track record, as well as a reputation for frugality. Here is a good article on him: (http://articles.dailypress.com/2011-01-09/business/dp-nws-cp-mike-petters-northrop-20110109_1_shipbuilding-enterprise-matt-mulherin-shipyard). Long NOC now, but looking to pick up shares of the spin-off at a bargain post distribution.

Best of Breed of defense contractors, who have been significantly discounted due to fears of government budgetary pressures and the wars winding down. However, this industry is likely to not only survive cuts by traditionally hawkish conservatives, but is likely to thrive due to increased exports from a cheap dollar and continued security concerns abroad.
NOC offers a solid dividend, and its dominant position in the UAV market offers it much stronger growth prospects relative to its industry peers.
A near term catalyst would be NOC's intention to spin-off its mature, lower margin ship-building operations, which would allow the company to focus its efforts in more profitable areas.

This stock qualifies for my high stable dividends screen, which typically outperforms the S&P 500 by more than 10% per year. The idea of the screen is to look for stocks that meet the following criteria: (1) dividend yields above 2% (2) stock seems undervalued and (3) dividend appears to be sustainable or growing. I think that Mr. Market will reward this type of stock in the near future as investors flee bonds in search of higher yields. Stable stocks should look appealing given the uncertain economic future for developed economies. The current dividend yield of Northrop Grummon is about 3.1%. Current ROE is 14% and the stock is trading for just 9 times expected earnings. The current payout ratio is 0.3 and the five year average payout ratio is 0.3

Northrop Grumman is moving toward their customer and aligning its business toward more of a profit orientation. They are strategically aligned to capture more business in areas that the Defense Department is buying.
