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.

  • No.


    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.

  • 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.
