    Smith & Wesson: Dirt Cheap As Market Is At Peak - SEEKING ALPHA GREAT ARTICLE

    When market is having a correction and is trading for low prices, it is very easy to find good value plays. On the other hand, when market is at (for Dow Jones Index) or near (for S&P 500 Index) all-time high, It becomes much more difficult to find good value plays, because a lot of stocks become either overpriced or at least fairly priced at that point. Smith & Wesson (SWHC) provides one of those great opportunities to get a growth stock for a really cheap price when the market is nearly peaking.

    According to Smith & Wesson's latest guidance, the company is expected to grow its revenues by another 40% and it is expected to earn $1.18 per share.

As a general rule, a P/E ratio of 10 implies that a company's revenues and earnings will be flat for the next few years. A P/E ratio below 10 implies that a company will see revenue and earnings drop and a P/E ratio above 10 implies that investors believe that the company will see revenue and earnings growth. This company already beat the latest estimates and gave guidance that suggest a lot
