July 23 (Reuters) - Lockheed Martin Corp reported a 22% rise in quarterly profit on Tuesday and raised its 2019 profit forecast for the second time this year, helped by increased demand for its F-35 combat jets.

The company's net earnings rose to $1.42 billion, or $5 per share, in the second quarter ended June 30, from $1.16 billion, or $4.05 per share, a year earlier.

Net sales rose 8% to $14.43 billion. (Reporting by Divya R and Rachit Vats in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
