NEW YORK,  February 21, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting
Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT), Pier 1 Imports, Inc. (NYSE:PIR), Bed
Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ:BBBY), Barclays PLC (NYSE:BCS) and HSBC Holdings plc.
(NYSE:HBC). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including
full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.

Lockheed Martin Corporation Research Report

Lockheed does not have a commercial business to depend on when the potential cut
in US defense spending happens. The company's shares fell  52 cents  or .6
percent, to  $86.70  in the last trading session. Lockheed acknowledged that
defense budget cuts are expected to reduce the company's sales; and in order to
overcome this, the company would cut enough costs that would allow its earnings
to exceed expectations. Being Pentagon's biggest supplier and the largest
defense contractor in the world, it is still optimistic and expecting its EPS to
grow to  $8.80 to $9.10  in 2013, beyond analysts' estimates. Lockheed may still
be a decent investment and a particularly solid income opportunity, being a
company with strong, multifaceted government contracts that subsidize its growth
in other sectors. The company also has a good dividend history. The Full

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. Research Report

Bed Bath & Beyond is the best performing company in its industry, making it more
profitable than Pier 1 and the rest of the competition. It has gross margins
similar to Pier 1 and another competitor Williams-Sonoma, but earns a much
higher operating margin. It is also a more efficient operator having more sales
per square foot, while having better merchandising and inventory management. And
while its competitors have strong e-commerce presence and aggressive marketing
through catalogs, Bed Bath & Beyond still has a far greater market share. The

Barclays PLC Research Report

Barclays' "Transform Program" is reported to address and resolve the company's
mistakes for the benefit of all stakeholders. From a new code of conduct which
applies to all employees to focusing on both short and long term goals, there
may be a chance for Barclays to become the "go-to" bank which it is dwelling on.
Barclays CEO  Antony Jenkins  is expected to discuss further details on 
February 12, Tuesday, and investors may want to take a rain check for other
engagements. The Full Research Report on Barclays PLC  - including full detailed

HSBC Holdings plc. Research Report

HSBC continues with its restructuring program that took effect in 2011. Compared
to the broad "Transform Program," HSBC's plan seems to focus on improving the
company's savings and penetrating fast-growing and profitable markets. Of
course, there may be noticeable changes in terms of business efficiency, but the
small-scope restructuring program has a great weight to propel the company in
achieving its goals. The Full Research Report on HSBC Holdings plc. - Including
