I've begun watching this stock. Seems to have fallen off due to the easing of firearms sales. But still has a nice base.
and the recent slide in small caps may add extra head winds.
but I have an additional thought. the long and hard winter may have hurt sales. Although this was more of a eastern event, and winter sports certainly provides real demand, I can't help to think this had an effect. Was there any mention of this on their last earnings report.
I would think that this stock may meander over the next 6 weeks as it approaches its next earnings report. I think I will look for a good entry point.
listened to the quarterly earnings report. management seems very candid. the report wasn't wonderful. i knew about the lack of arm sales. weather did seem to weigh on sales too. but earnings should have been a little better because Easter heart last year's quarter, but this year Easter is in the present quarter. (they close stores during Easter)
as to the next /present quarter, a return to more routine weather should help. but can we depend upon routine weather? and as Easter is in the pending quarter, this will hurt this quarter.
they're "e-commerce" seems to be a drag on earnings, and they are not giving any guidance on this venture - but that is cautious and shouldn't be criticized. and this is a venture that they must enter to be part of today's commerce.
i am not a shareholder as of yet. but the value is compelling. i am going to look at a good entry point.
