OB investment strategy



way different topic for this board:
"investment guy" in the same office bldg as me is also a devoted shooter: pistols, rifles, not much on shotguns. since obama has been in office he has had several of his clients into ruger, colt, s&w, etc and they have been seeing some nice returns until 12/2012 incident. any of y'all ever try this strategy with outdoor related products? it follows the age old advice of investing in what you understand.
i prob should take this to the money board, but i'm more interested in the OB's opinion.

I'm a financial planner. It's bad to invest on emotion.

This. Or just individual stocks in general. Stick to index funds.

re: OB investment strategy


I noticed you mentioned land for lease here and then I saw a piece of property for sale that matched your description. Is it in a location where you could set up 3/d archery, sporting clays/ skeet, dig a large pond for paid fishing, etc?

i'm not talking about emotion, just a well founded understanding of good vs bad products being produced.

re: OB investment strategy


Then I don't understand the question. You lump in purchasing of firearm manufacturing stocks with a tragic event. How is that not investing on emotion?

Colt is a private company so no investments there.


Ruger is actually up ~ $10pts since 12/12. Add in dividends and you are looking pretty good.
SWHC is about the same and they don't pay dividends.

As to the guy saying don't invest in individual companies, I couldn't disagree more. Do your homework and pay attention and you will be fine.

re: OB investment strategy


I always thought a sporting clay/ skeet range on this side of town would do well. The lead issues and neighbors complaining from the sound is always a real problem...

no, you don't bc i worded it poorly (sorry, my bad). i'm not refering to firearm manufactures exclusively, i was just using them as an example. i shouldn't have used them as an example because of the emotion involved.
a better, however simplistic, example would have been whoever manufactures thermocells. or even better, the trolling motor manufacturer that first started producing the gps-enabled units.

re: OB investment strategy


Aren't many of the outdoor products privately owned? Or are they just owned as part of a larger public traded company?

Reminds me of Warren Buffett's comment about investing in gold. He referred to it as "Going long on fear."

I misunderstood -- I thought your friend was advising client to invest in guns.

I was gonna point out that a well-rounded portfolio should include ammo as well.
