    Chickens seem to always come back to value stocks with strong balance sheets like RGR when market is getting beat up.

    I don't understand the price action in RGR at all! It is an amazing value. They have $101.4M in free cash flow through 3 quarters and only need $59.1M/yr to cover their dividend. If you annualize those 3 quarters and divide by market cap that's a free cash flow yield is 12.3%!! which means if you bought ALL the company' stock at it's current price ($64.59) and stopped paying dividends, your ownership would generate 12.3% return on your investment assuming no change in revenues or profitability. It trades at P/E 7.78, Price/Sales 1.72, Price/Cash flow 7.1 They have $0 long term debt!!! They pay a 5.21% dividend and have $27M in the bank. The cash + short term investments on their balance sheet exceed ALL their liabilities by $112.3M! The outstanding share count is shrinking and was 18.7M shares in 2016 and 17.6M shares now which means the company is not stabbing the shareholder in the back by issuing more shares and diluting shareholder ownership. Try finding a company with better metrics than RGR, because I sure cannot. I did notice that the short interest is increasing 4.96%-->5.27% lately so maybe that and the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict may have changed sentiment and served as a headwind out of fear of congressional antagonism.......I am holding it with a basis of $70 for as long as it takes for the rest of the world to wake up to this value and will take my dividend to the bank in the interim.

    Ruger is now shipping it's first batch of Marlin 1895 rifles. Very popular firearms with a high retail price. The Marlin brand will be paying off big time.

    IT IS THE CHINA VIRUS. Forget semantics. And the odds are it came out of the Wuhan labs.

    if you got into commodities as i did - oil, gas, agriculture, metals & mining - your portfolio is booming ... also financials as they do well when interest rates rise .... and i am looking forward to more normal interest rates ..it should never get close to zero ..that is basically saying money is worth nothing ...but what does the fed know ..now they are so fa behind the curve. as for gun stocks, i don't really know where we are ...

    another virus mutation ...it's over..the virus which has no brain has officially won ..it can't be contained. economies can't afford lockdowns. and folks are tired of all the restrictions. i think the markets are reflecting that with the rally in the face of omnicron news. i am still positioned for a recovery. haven't changed a bit -overweight energy, financials, and metals/mining, while owning some good dividend paying stocks ...like rgr ....

    I can't wait for the Ruger built Marlin 336 carbine. After years of Remington ruining the Marlin name, we are finally on track. Home defense is the issue.

    if someone armed with an ak47 other than law enforcement or the military showed up UNINVITED on my property to "defend" it, i would take them out -and i am not referring to lunch.

    T-Rump loves vaccines and does not know how to shoot a gun. He is a rich real estate developer from NY. Yet a lot of white #$%$ southerners voted for him. Why? I don't get it? How do you identify with a rich guy from NY?

    swbi now down cose to 30% .... getting slaughtered ... a pe ratio is based on forward earnings ..if it is not growing relative to the past, then it's gonna get hit...that said, it has great balance sheet and has real earnings... i find valuations absurd in a lot of cases - there are companies that lose a ton of money every quarter and they go up ...and swbi gets slammed ... but you gotta play the game ..
