Current new demand will NOT reflect production of the upcoming Q4 report. The 300+ million dollar back log was and will continue to be the focal point of all production. Current demand will be reflected in Q1 Q2 Q3 of the upcoming year. Cramer called this a sell....he'll change his tune in 30 days. I always do the opposite of Cramer recommendations. He runs a massive hedge fund and he wants this cheaper than cheap. The hedgies and mutual guys are gaining interest in this now that the political ramifications are fading away. Of course they are making sell recommendations when they want to buy it.
it would be poor management if production was not shifted. if some of your products are exposed to pending legislation to ban them and are in high demand then any intelligent manager would shift production in case the legislation passed
Not sure about profit margins, but what I've seen is alot of action on the M&P pistols, especially the shield. I have also seen alot of activity in the MP15-22. Buyers are scooping these up as an affordable way to shoot, due to the cost of ammo. The M&P pistols are now being adopted by many Law Enforcement agencies across the country. In most cases replacing the Glock.
