the company will never cut the dividend because the ruger family owns so much of the stock and they like to have the income. The stock is a good long term buy right now and the yeild will be maintained and will even be increased the ruger family likes to get at least 5% on their holdings! If you look at the price history you can see the evidence for this.
What you say is true but what are they doing internationally? Take a look at S&W who religously send regional managers out around the world to talk to customers, sell product and report back to Mfg about what the market wants. All Ruger does is sit there and hope and pray they get some business from the International marketplace. The trend is there.. Handguns sales in the US continue to decline and with all these law suits and the restrictions on ownership plus now the potential for individual liability shouldn't they get off their collective dead asses and be proactive in the International market. The Rugers might like their 5 points but 5% of nothing is still nothing and if they keep going like this that's what they will have in about 5 years.
I bought a brand new red label. 3 weeks later high brass jamming in the top chamber. I return it to the factory. They tell me it will take 30 days to look at. I asked them to just replace it or give me another gun to replace it. I have a shoot this Sunday and my brand new Ruger sits at the factory. I will never buy one of these pieces of shit again.
