Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation Message Board

  • mtheis17 mtheis17 Jan 30, 2013 12:20 AM Flag


    Its a shame that this message board is 99 percent people's opinions about guns and 1 perecent related to the actually stock SWHC or even other stocks in the same industry. Does anyone have anything constructive to say about SWHC? If not, does anyone know of any message board where people actually talk about it?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • I'm thinking that patience will be rewarded here. Let the weak hands sell, get some good numbers and hopefully we will see a nice spike.

      Reality has been a rocky road so far. I have an average position at $8.25, so it has been easy to hold through the ups and downs. Hopefully we can at least maintain this level.

      I've never been much of a buy and hold a long time guy. Usually I like to get in and get out fairly quick. Normally I would have bought and sold a couple of times since the shooting, but I don't want to miss a big spike (if we get one.) When you look at this chart is has a solid history of hanging out in the doldrums then suddenly making a big move. I'm not going to miss it.

      Good luck all.

    • I like the stock here. All the weak hands and those deluded into thinking this company is socially unacceptable should be finished getting out soon. What I would like to know is that even if they did a ban, S&W might actually gain market share as I believe they would be positioned well for those guns that could still be sold. Anyway, people are trading this stock on emotion, the kind of non-market stuff that make this stock trade lower than what it should be at. Eventually, the stock price will catch up to the fundamentals. It should be a nice ride.

    • you want a 'constructive' thought because you're already long and want confirmation.
      This weaking cant even hold ten, and it's , uh, under the gun,,so to speak. Buying it now would be ridiculous. Just the overwhelming long positions here should tell you it's seriously overbought already, sucker!

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • If you were able to back your statement with any kind of substance you might come across as credible in your post. I take as many short positions as I do long but it has to be because of a weaker balance, sheet, declining sales, declining margins, expanding inventories, fraud, something.....but I just don't see it here. While I don't think SWHC's stock goes up as much as it has the last couple of years i do see at least a $10 price by earnings just due to shrinking backlog and increased sales and pricing.

        Sentiment: Hold

    • Agreed, sick of hearing about the fear and politics. All I want to know is this stock going to go up or down. Does anybody know exactly when earnings comes out? Thats really the bellweather moment for this stock I think. Does anybody think this could possibly double if earnings are good? That would make my day.. pun intended.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Buy it, and forget about it for a couple years, it will make you MONEY.

    • Remember Phillip Morris.
      As the news got worse, the stock got better.
      Once these socially "conscious" institutions all get out, that should bottom the stock.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • For the time being the price is held down by the funds that are selling, IMO. Any thoughts on the cash generated by increased sales for more buy backs and possible taking SWHC private.

    • I think there is one other catalyst that might move us substantially before earnings too. The legislation that Feinstein has submitted has ZERO chance of passing either the house or the senate. So there will be some rhetoric about how they will "delay" any talks due to lack of support. That will spike us a good 5% to 10%.
