Why isn't s&w 'soaring' as expected. What is next earnings date and are they expected top meet or beat estimates? Is rgr a better run company/buy?
i bought a junk of s7w @ 10.41 and am getting nervous.......
Last reported earnings on 9/6/12. Next report will be some time in early December (no date yet announced). As to RGR, do your own due diligence, but SWHC guidance was very strong out of the last conference call.
If Obama does well in the next televised debate, the stock will likely "pop" into the $12 - $13 range on gun control concerns. Personally, I'd buy in the high $9 dollar range to reduce my cost basis. In fact I did just that this morning.
If valuation tells you anything, RGR is more highly valued, and thus a better run company.
I like RGR's products more than I like SWHC. RGR has more products in market sweet spots. Go to a gun show, see who crowds the RGR products, and who crowds the SWHC products.
While one poster mentioned a BO debate victory, and that may affect the short term price for these stocks, I don't think the lib policies are the only driving factor. The riots in Europe are the result of too much debt, and even if the Pubs win, we'll still have too much debt. More, if the pubs win and try to reign in excessive spending, it could be more likely that the US experiences the unrest we see in Europe.
Markets make crazy moves. I am a gun owner, and I don't see my need for personal protection getting any better or worse based on who wins this election. JMO. GL.
