I absolutely expect this company to outperform the market considering its recent merging with orbital sciences and its broad pipeline of products.

The Cabela's last quarterly report about ammo and gun was GROSSLY misunderstood by the investment community. If they could have somehow magicly gotten all the ammo they wanted their ammo sales would have been up many fold (that's right, triple digit increases). The reasons it wasn't so great is that they don't have much ammo and can't get more. Nobody seems to understand outside those of us in the indurstry. The next quartly report in a few days will "surprise everyone" (as will Ruger's although to be fair their estimates are pretty high already, so it won't be a monster surprise). It's good for at least another quarter, probably more. It will take a lot of production just to refill wholesale and retail inventories. After that watch wholesale inventories to gauge if/when the ammo demand is somewhat satisfied. Even after that not a bad pick, but if there's ever competition again in the ammo market prices are gonna have to come down a little (again, it will probably be a "surprise" that is obvious to anyone who really watches things. Might be a nice reentery point as profits fall. That's a long time off though. Right now you can sell anything at nearly any price. I realize ammo is not all they sell, not even a majority. But it is a known and currently very profitable factor.

The P/E looks low, the P/FCF ratio looks lower -- but ATK's been making a lot of high-priced acquisitions lately, and ultimately, the stock will ultimately pay the price for that.

With Obama back in office and Gun-Control regulations being a hot issue. I think the people will buy guns and ammo in record numbers in the next few months. ATK is a huge producer of ammunition and I think they are in a good position to make a profit.

Lets see. They operate 24 hours a day, make as much as possible and sell out constantly. Money. Lots of it.

Currently the largest ammunition manufacturing entity in the world. Since 2000 ATK has grown significantly as a result of both internal expansion and a series of acquisitions.
