Buying More Sturm, Ruger

The shares remain relatively inexpensive in spite of a financial performance that you might characterize as "Yuge", "Major", or "Stupendous." The dividend remains very well covered. While the business is obviously volatile, there's limited downside from here in my view. I'm starting to think that the reason for the recent outperformance is that this is one of those rare stocks that's obviously more compelling than Treasuries at the moment.
