Chart Of The Day: Sturm, Ruger's Revenues

Tyler Durden's picture

This chart showing Sturm, Ruger's quarterly revenues needs no comment.

 

Perhaps 'Sandy' or the elections will drive a renewed interest in being 'locked-and-loaded' as looting continues?

Some highlights:

  • EPS 88c vs 80.3c expectations
  • Sales $118.15mm vs $112mm expectations
  • Net Income $17.35mm vs $15.35mm expectations

and if the surge in revenues wasn't enough - here is the ever-increasing rate of production (in units) - the world is indeed a more dangerous 'armed' place...

 

There has evidently been no change in the trend of demand for weaponry (as we noted with Smith & Wesson's recent update)
