    CEO moving too slow?

    I understand the slow and go approach. I am just wondering if this is incongruous to being a publicly traded company? They could be making hundreds of thousands of guns go take advantage of this opportunity but slow going means they lose these sales to the competition. Does this CEO have the right mindset and strategy to take this company to the multi billion market captalization and maximize this window of opportunity? For discussion.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • The conservative management approach is best. Expansion to take advantage of a very temporary surge in demand would be disastrous in the end as the added capacity would soon sit unused. Ruger will soon have re-stocked the supply channel and will thereafter scale back production from its current full-out level.

      While this management / director team is very good at managing operations, they are ripping off shareholders by grossly over-compensating themselves. They are taking nearly 20% of earnings for themselves. They would be very generously compensated even at 1/3 their present level.
