Maybe volume was artificially high in the beginning of the year, because of all the pensions and hedge funds who were forced to sell shares because of political philosophy. Now the remaining shareholders can hold as long as they wish. With RGR shares trading at a below market multiple of 12.2x earnings (I estimate earnings $6.05 for 2013), and paying 40% of earnings as dividends, it is more attractive to hold the shares than to sell.
Long this stock for years. This is an very strange period. Dare I think we are setting up for the Black Swan event where we go up $20 in 20 weeks.? Shorts will take another run and the analyst hit piece is still to be dropped but his company is worth a lot more. BTW....check out ATK...on a monster run now that they bought Bushnell/savage, etc.
