NEW YORK, February 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports

(NYSE:LUV), Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE:LMT), General Dynamics Corp.
(NYSE: GD) and Wynn Resorts Ltd. (NASDAQ: WYNN). Today's readers may access

US Airways Group, Inc. Research Report

US Airways reported its highest ever annual profit of $537 million or $2.79
per diluted share in 2012, despite incurring losses of approximately $35
million due to Hurricane Sandy during the fourth quarter. The stock price went
as high as $15.41 this month after going as low as just $4 in late 2011.
Imperial Capital put a target price of $20 with an "outperform" rating. The
airline recently grabbed headlines with its plan to negotiate a merger with
bankrupt AMR Corp, parent company of American Airlines, which is set to be
completed in two weeks' time, with only the final price and management
structure left to be discussed. The merger would result to the creation of the
world's largest airline, and would help both carriers compete with larger
competitors United Continental Holdings Inc. and Delta Air Lines Inc. The Full

Southwest Airlines Co. Research Report

Southwest Airlines was meanwhile given a price target of as high as $15 and a
"buy" rating from various analysts despite seeing its fourth quarter profits
take a plunge by more than half due to rising costs on fuel, labor, and
maintenance. Revenues did rise, though, as the average fare increased by
almost $8 from last year. Nevertheless, annual profit was 26 percent higher
than in 2011, with a net income of $417 million. So far, 2012 was the
company's 40th consecutive year of profitability. The airline known for its
"no-fee" policy, which does not charge the passengers' first two bags or give
penalties as high as $150 for changing tickets, will be adding a new fee of
$40 for customers to move up the boarding queue to be among the first few to
board its flights, a change from the usual first-come first-serve policy. With
such added costs plus higher payroll taxes brought by the recent fiscal cliff
deal, Southwest Airlines executives still expect good results for the first
quarter of 2013, as revenue trends and bookings are "looking very solid" for
them. The Full Research Report on Southwest Airlines Co. - including full

Lockheed Martin Corporation Research Report

Weakening sales due to slow government spending resulted to a $700 million
decrease in the net sales of Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE:LMT) [Full
Research Report](1) in 2012. The Pentagon's biggest supplier of defense
technology systems and products reported a 19% decrease of earnings of $1.73
per share during the last quarter compared to $2.14 during the same period the
previous year. However, Lockheed CEO and President Marillyn Hewson expects
that the company's "dedicated team, broad portfolio, focus on program
execution and proactive reduction efforts" which contributed to a "record
performance and backlog in 2012" will be able to sustain the current yield of
4.98%, a shy away from the 5% mark. In the face of low demand due to budget
cut in military spending, Lockheed foresees a rise in earnings per share
between $8.80 and $9.10 in 2013. Just this month, the company receives a $90
million performance-based logistics contract on the U.S. Army's M-TADS/PNVS,
the electro-optical fire control system used by Apache helicopter pilots. This
technology provides pilots with "long-range, electro-optical precision
engagement and flying capabilities. The contract was awarded to ensure the
"continuous improvement of processes, services and products that benefit our
warfighters," according to Tom Eldredge, program director of M-TADS/PNVS
international and support programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire
Control. The Full Research Report on Lockheed Martin Corporation - including

General Dynamics Corp. Research Report

General Dynamics Corp. is also continuing to be a strong key player in the
defense industry despite the uncertainties posed by the potential
sequestration. Last January 24, General Dynamics announced the Mobile User
Objective System (MUOS) upgrade order from the Army. Valued at $5 million, the
upgrade is designed to address the enhancement of 100 Handheld, Man pack,
Small Form Fit AN/PRC-155 two-channel radios to enable communication with the
military's MUOS. The MUOS waveform will deliver high-speed voice and data
communications and 10-times greater capacity than the military's current
satellite communication system. Despite recording a $2.1 billion loss during
the previous quarter, General Dynamics Chairman and CEO Phebe N. Novakovic
said that the company "anticipates earnings per share from continuing
operations to be in the range of $6.60 to $6.70." Because of the shrinking
government budget at home and overseas, Novakovic noted that some of the
markets are contracting but provide opportunities for improvement. This
aggressive approach to the business seemingly gave way to a strong yield of
2.9% in the present and an outstanding dividend growth over the past two
decades. The Full Research Report on General Dynamics Corp. - including full

Wynn Resorts Ltd. Research Report

The recent numbers of the companies are enough to substantially determine
where the hospitality and gaming industry is heading. The US economy is
expected to gradually take off on the second half 2013. However, the present
economic barriers are hindering Wynn to make a bold move towards their
pursuits for business expansions and for driving more people (and their money)
into luxurious hotel and casino splurges. As a result, Wynn as well as other
competing companies is thinking about investing where the money lies, even if
it means venturing outside the US. Wynn has luxury resorts and casino
properties in Macau, the only region in China where gambling is legal and is a
continuously flourishing industry despite the lukewarm economic condition in
Asia. In fact, Macau casino revenue skyrocketed by 13.5 percent last year,
recording an epic $38 billion profit, boosted by its 35 casinos. Through this
success, Macau retains its position as the biggest gambling market in the
world. Thus, more and more foreign luxury businesses are turning to Macau,
including Wynn, which have already built their casino empire in the region
more than 5 years ago. The Full Research Report on Wynn Resorts Ltd. -
including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is
