[Note: Due to the Christmas holiday week, I’m sharing with you one of my favorite PowerTalks from the past. This PowerTalk originally was posted on December 12, 2012. However, the following analysis is updated.]
Contrary to expectations, Safety and Security PowerTrend company Smith & Wesson (SWHC) has had a successful year, rising 36.78% since this PowerTalk was first posted. In fact, I recently recommended SWHC in my PowerTrader service.
The fundamentals that Smith & Wesson President and CEO James Debney and I discussed in last December’s PowerTalk are still intact, meaning that the past year’s growth could continue into 2014.
The interview covers a range of topics still valid and relevant today, including: how SWHC profits from strong firearm sales and shifting gun ownership demographics; the growing demand for firearms; Smith & Wesson’s strategy for continuing to improve margins and grow earnings; and how SWHC’s management plans to increase market share.
