Both a cash cows but have political baggage. Would do better operating as private companies. Someone will realize this before long and I predict both of these companies will be private before Obama is a private citizen. The should both command a nice premium to current prices.
I agree. I have thought the same thing for a while now. RGR's market cap is about 50% more than SWHC's though. SWHC just reported sales for this fiscal year that almost equals their market cap. That's crazy.
This is why I started the other topic of "Ask yourself: Why release early?". I wonder if it has something to do with rumblings of an attempted takeover?? Maybe they want to push the price up and quick to fend off pursuers?? I have no idea, but it just seems odd to me to release early like this.
