    • Yet another piece of wrong information by Marcy! I cannot tell if this person is either an investment novice or misusing information to promote an agenda. Morningstar does not give investment advice on Smith and Wesson. Smith and Wesson is not one of the some 1,800 companies MS studies. MS offers no opinion or forecast on the merits of buying or selling the shaares of Smith and Wesson..

      MS crunches the historic numbers of many other companies, including Smith and Wesson. That is all MS does with these companies. However, good investors are always looking to the future. In Smith and Wesson's case, the future is a turnaround situation where the company has returned to its roots as an excellent gun manufacturer, and has abandoned businesses that were neither profitable nor central to its operations. What the company did two, three or four years ago is now is not relevant. Were MS giving advice on Smith and Wesson, those facts would have been dicosed and weighed, and an investment opinion offered.

    • and all of those will be blown out of the water this year thanks for pointing this out.

    • Is it that hard for Leftists like you to EVER tell the truth? Every time you guys try to persuade someone you predicate it with a lie or a half truth.

      It truly is a pathetic existence.

    • I mean seriously? You can only live this delusion for so long before the reality sets in right? If you are short, wouldn't it be best to cover now before you get slaughtered? You have no thesis whatsoever. There is not one single logical reason to be short.

    • Yep - the chart is SCREAMING "UP!". SP can barely be contained until earnings. The 1 year chart is a beautiful thing.

      • Marcy thinks the stock should trade based upon some bad numbers before they cleaned up their act and also sold the losing proposition perimeter security business. Makes a lot of sense.

        Earnings estimates are up over the last 90 days. They can only move them up so fast so they don't look like they were stupid:

        Current Qtr Jan '13 Up 37.5% over last 90 days
        Next Qtr Apr '13 Up 36.4%
        Current Yr Apr '13 Up 19.5%
        Next Yr Apr '14 Up 13.6%
