S&W crushed earnings and guided up nicely for 2013.

I practically begged my parents to get into Ruger and S&W in late 2008, I didn't have the cash available to buy anything meaningful. They brushed it off. Ruger was trading at just under 6 bucks then. It's over 40 now.

Don't people get tired of QE3 yet? so sick of reading about it. 1 bad job reports and everyone thinks QE3 is gonna happen. The fed's in a great position right now. by not implementing QE3 they provide some stability to the market because the thought of the Fed acting if things goes to shit calms people down. That's actually more beneficial to them than actually implementing it.

Haven't bought a Ruger since my 10/22. I used to have a S&W but I got rid of it. If I was going to buy a revolver, it would be one of the two brands.

It was my opinion that both were a no brainer in 2008. In the general sense, exluding any technical analysis, it was clear that both had good things coming to them.

You always hear the phrase "If only you had done such and such, you would have been rich!"

I'm curious, does anyone here know someone (directly, not friend of a friend) that actually hold Apple stocks from way back when it was still a double digit, and is still holding them now? I would think most of them would have sold it when it hit the $2-300 dollar range, when everyone thinks it couldn't go any higher. Now it's approaching the $700 mark.

honestly if I had bought it at $7/share in 2002 I'd have sold it by $41/share, if not earlier

A senior exec I worked with on my last project has held AAPL shares with cost bases as low as $74. Some are higher than that, but none are above $250, I believe.

He has 1000 shares, total.
