Shares of Sturm Ruger (RGR) lose 11.1% in early trading despite the company recording a healthy earnings beat for Q2. While gun demand remains strong, are the increasing odds for a Mitt Romney presidency weighing on gun stocks? SWHC -0.9%.

    Anyone else find it odd that the company beats on all numbers and the stock gets whacked 11%? More evidence that the market is a fancy casino.

    This is a small cap with 30% short interest.


    Once the production capacity issues are ironed out, it's a definite long-term growth/dividend holding. It's fundamentals are very sound, except for a few headwinds on EPS growth.


    If you wanted to increase your holdings, today was a good opportunity.


    This is not a day-trade stock.

    Buying opportunity. These stocks are going higher. Smith & Wesson's product line is geared toward what is selling the best today, black guns and handguns. FD. Long SWHC and ATK.....and now RGR.

    Could be that all of the folks that think they need to fully arm, ahead of gun laws, are already fully armed.

    I still can't figure out RGR? What's the deal? Wallstreet must be very anti-gun!

    Buy on the dips! Look at the action, down almost six bucks then back up three. It hit a bunch of stops & then onward and upward! It was a gift.
