Trying to cover positions before buyback? The buyback, though only one million shares, will only put more pressure on shorts as more institutions are holding, the short position is still high in total, i think we are going higher. It might be ok to say we may be entering the promised land (18+)..... Funny thing, even at 18, the vluation still not near ruger metrics. That i cannot reconcile, but for the board of directors, swhc is a better company.
