Behind the mysterious stock dump ahead of Trump's Lockheed Martin tweet


When it began pinging around on Twitter, the graph raised suspicion. 

It showed the stock price of Lockheed Martin, an aerospace firm, jumping off a cliff only minutes before President-elect Donald Trump disparaged the company on Twitter. 

Had Trump told people to dump their stock before he blasted Lockheed Martin’s F-35 fighter jet program? 

The F-35 program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20th.
