Beginning 2013 looks good for this stock with pre-tax margin (TTM) > 20, no LT debt, 5 yr EPS growth rate > 40%, P/E ~16, gun sales were good before talk of govt control measures, now they are astounding. Obviously well run company that makes a really good weapon. Provided the makeup of the Supreme Court doesn't change in the near term, I think the fears from govt. gun control are overblown. This stock got beat up hard end of last year, and even worse after the Newton killings. This stock still has a lot of bounce back room, plus a lot of growth room. Gun sales in the U.S. have been steadily growing, and reaching new demographics. It ain't done yet!
