Recall, there were only 1,500 2010 model small block Raptors being manufactured. There are 6,000 large block 2010 models, 1/2 of which have been pre-sold. Demand and production will likely only go up from here.
Not bad for a "piece of silver" stock like CODI.
(I still think the Raptor is still only a very small part of our top/bottom line, but every bit helps. And Fox remains our highest bottom line contributing company.)
I've been in the automotive industry for years. And as a supplier to Ford,GM,Toyota our firm NEVER gives an OEM more than a year exclusive on one of our new products. I have to believe that Fox Shox is now selling units to trhe other interested OEMs...and there's even bigger bucks in the aftermarket. I personally like to think that in 2-3 years Compass will sell Fox Shox for a TON OF BUCKS...and that all of us shareholders will get BIG CAPITAL GAINS!!
That would be good news, but don't forget that the trust holders would have to pay ALL of the cap gains taxes through our K-1's. As a long term holder, this happened to me in the past when they sold Crossman etc... got a huge tax bill the year they sold, but eventually the $ will filter down thru distributions.
